Day  2

I hope day 1 went well!  Don’t you feel better after a good junk purge?  Today we’re moving on to the next step and getting some actual organizing done!


I want to start with your drawers today!  You threw away everything you don’t use on day 1, right?  So today should only take 10 minutes or so.  We’ll finish up the rest of the sink on another day.  So you’ll get a quick win today!

Here’s how I did mine.

Step 1:  Empty everything out and clean the drawer.  I just used water and a cleaning cloth.

Step 2:  Throw some plastic bins into the drawers.  I used these long drawers for my makeup.  I sorted makeup I use every day in one bin and the rest into the other.  I had some room in the back of the drawer for stuff I rarely use but wanted to keep.

I don’t wear a ton of makeup (turns out when you work from home, the dog doesn’t care if you are wearing mascara…), so if you have more than I do, you may want to store some extras under the sink.  You’ll get some more ideas for that when we get to Day 3.

I used this 3 part drawer organizer for the other side.  Perfect for corralling hair ties and chapstick.  And enough room for storing stuff on the other side like deodorant and toothpaste.

Step 3:  Ready for the last step?!?  I added some sticky magets to one side of the drawer to organize bobby pins.  They worked for tweezers too!

That’s it for day two!  Wasn’t that easy?  I finished my drawers a few months ago and it’s been so nice not having to dig to the bottom of my makeup drawer every morning.  Plus the bins really make it easy to maintain!

After Day 3 tomorrow, you’ll be more than halfway through the challenge!  So I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
