Five Minute Tackle: My Make-Up Drawer
I’m really trying to get our house more organized. I’d like to think it is because I’m a naturally organized person. But that would be a lie.
I’d like to say it is because I really want things to look
nice decent when my mom comes to visit next week. And that is partially true.
Mostly I want to organize because my dear sweet The Rev. has an innate need for order and neatness that I don’t seem to have. And we bought a house that was perfect for six people to live in, and then added two more. And we refinanced, so we’re staying here. (I like this house!)
So I’ve been doing little five minute mini fixes. (I’m a twin mom. . .I don’t have all day!) I’ll share with you. Forgive me if I don’t show the before photos. I’m transparent, but I DO have a sense of shame!
Here is my make-up drawer after photo. Most of my make-up had been spilling out of a too small make-up bag on the counter top. This drawer was filled with. . .stuff. . .like a whole garbage bag full of stuff. (I’m so embarrassed).
I picked up this set of drawer organizers from K-Mart, and now I’m happy to say I will never (I hope) lose my hairbands and nail clippers again!
This really did take me five minutes. (Or less!)
Chime in! What do you think you can tackle in your house today! Post about it in the comments! Better yet, write about it on your blog and leave me a link! I’d love to see what you can accomplish in just five minutes!
*p.s. Please don’t tell the Rev. that it only took five minutes, or he is going to expect A LOT more forward progress in our little house on the prairie!
