Simple Make up and Nail Cleaning Kit Organization

Is being organize one of your resolutions for 2014 ? If so , you are in the right track. We like to consider ourselves as an organized couple. With two little kids at home  , it is indeed a challenge. We do our best  since we have limited space . Organization is a process. It can not be done overnight . It should not cost you an arm and a leg. It is a habit. I just don't think you will ever get done organizing because your families needs will change and you will have some addition or will reduce some of your stuff.  You will have to adjust your techniques in organization depending on your current situation as well.

I will post a few series of organization as well , that don't have to be expensive. Don't get caught up with buying a whole lot of things to help you organize . Sometimes your first step will just have to be creativity and the right attitude as well. I think Organization and living with less or simplicity goes hand in hand.

I must mention that I do not own a lot of make ups, so this organization is simple and easy to maintain.

I store my make ups inside our medicine cabinet. and where do I store our medicines?

In a container , in our closet. At the very top shelf where the kids can't reach it of course - why? because
 Heat, humidity and poor ventilation can cause drugs to deteriorate so they're not effective.
For example, a warm, muggy environment can cause aspirin tablets to break down into acetic acid (vinegar) and salicylic acid, both of which can irritate the stomach. ( Source :  Storing medicine safely )

While make up and make up brushes expose to humidity, heat and so on ,  is not ideal  as well. I think storing them inside the cabinet , and replacing them frequently will do you a little to no harm.

so back to the organization part ...

I bought these little square containers at the dollar store , they came in pack of four.

here's the top shelf..

Now for my nail cleaning kit and nail polishes..

Inside the clear cosmetic bag is where I put all of my nail polishes , the little pouch and an extra nail tool kit.

 Inside the small pouch , is where I put all of my nail tools ( nail clippers , nipper etc) , cotton balls, Q tips  and nail files.

I prefer to put all of my nail stuff in a small bag  so it is very easy grab when I want to use it. I store my nail cleaning kit on top of a shelf as well inside our bathroom. 

There are a lot of benefits in being organized. ( See : Benefits of Being Organized ) It makes everyday a little less chaotic and makes functioning less stressful.

Organized School & Study Materials

 Disclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase through the  links I will receive a small commission.

Big sister is turning 4 soon and next year she will be in Pre K . I am excited for her, new friends. A little bittersweet because I'm gonna miss this dynamite girl even if it is just for a short period of time. I've never been away from her EXCEPT when I gave birth with jumping bean. I am gonna let our baby spread her wings really really soon.

Meanwhile , we do a Letter of the Week lesson type here at home . We love to make crafts too. Having a place for everything is very challenging because we have a limited space . Having a good organized School/ Study materials will keep us sane.

We used the Closet Maid Pantry Cabinet ( Alder). It was on sale at Target , it's always a good day when you find the item you need on sale.

Here's whats at the very top..

First shelf..

Love this Spot it Alphabet All in one for preschoolers, they learn and play at the same time. It helps to develop their visual perception skills and fine motor as well. 

The 2nd shelf

** This binder ( as shown above) is for Lucy's  collection of printables from several websites. Where she can practice her tracing ( lines and alphabets). Instead of laminating the sheets , I used Avery sheet protectors  and dry erase markers so we can use it over and over again.

The 3rd Shelf

You know those times where you wanted to do something with your child but you are too lazy to come up with something? That's where flash cards comes in very handy for me. I can just sit my lazy tush in the couch and still spend time and teach them at the same time. Stickers ..gotta have that for rewards!!

I Love this as well ( Caddy) , it keeps all these writing and coloring materials in one place. I just sometimes leave it in our dining when momma needs to stay busy. 

The  4th and last shelf

Did I tell you that they love puzzles? Specially Lucy. Her facial expression right after putting the puzzle together..IS JUST PRICELESS.

Don't forget to pin and share!
