DIY Makeup Storage Organizer

This, to me, is a really clever DIY storage hack that uses something you most likely already have (and probably have many of them in multiple sizes).

Now, YOU may have seen this hack before, but I’ve never seen it. I guess it’s kinda common sense, but it was simply genius to me.

Just watch:

I don’t know about YOU, but I have a TON of old Amazon boxes… and get new ones ALL. THE. TIME.

With some paint or wrapping paper or something, these could be THE cheapest makeup storage boxes ever!

Small Bathroom Makeup Storage Ideas

Small bathrooms are the WORST, right? There’s never enough space to put your stuff let alone actually organize it.

If you’re trying to find makeup storage solutions for your small bathroom, my best advice is…

– Get some type of makeup storage unit that can hang on the wall, or

– Get a narrow and tall makeup storage organizer to take up the least amount of counter space possible, or

– Hang some DIY floating shelves to put your makeup on, or

– Try to work with the space over your toilet to maximize the space you DO have without cluttering up your bathroom counter.
