PROBLEM – I have a drawer that is full and overflowing with toiletries. It is hard for me to find what I am looking for in the morning as I am rushing to get ready for the day.

SOLUTION – Find some sort of container and put your regularly used toiletries in this container. If you like a clear dresser or sink area put this container into a drawer. In the morning you can easily pull out the container which has everything that you need and it is all in one place. The items go back in the container and the container can easily be put back in the drawer.

HINT – Only put regularly used items in the container. That way your container doesn’t become frustratingly full.

I put my makeup brushes, eyeliner, and lipliner in a drinking glass in my medicine cabinet so it is easy to see the color of the liner or to grab the right makeup brush. That has helped me a lot.

    Clear containers are great in that they allow for visibility – great application of this concept.
