6 Storage Hacks for Your Personal Items

Keep your bedroom and bathroom organized by crafting storage solutions for your beauty must-haves


Leaving brushes, makeup, and other essentials on the counter can create visual clutter—in the bathroom and on your dresser.

Avoid the mess and feeling stressed each time you get ready for work by crafting organizers using items that are locally available.

Use a straw dispenser

After cleaning your makeup brushes, where do you usually store them? While it's easier to stuff them inside pouches and drawers, it's important that you keep them dirt-free. Straw dispensers are ideal when storing brushes as it makes it easier for you to get what you need while keeping your essentials free from dust.

Place them in buckets

Turn plain buckets into instant makeup holders. Install them on one wall near your sink. If you have small ones, you may assign one bucket to a group of products depending on purpose—group hair products together and place all creams in one bucket.

RL Tip: Be extra creative by painting your buckets! You can even add quirky labels.

Install hooks

How many times have you encountered tangled wires? Avoid dealing with knots by keeping your hair products inside cabinets. Install hooks behind cabinet doors then hang your items there.

You may also install the hooks in the bathroom—make use of blank walls and hidden corners.
