New Storage Bits

I'm in the process of tidying my room again. I probably chose the worst time to it as the sun is shining out which doesn't happen enough. I don't know how my room gets so untidy, I clean it and then less than two weeks later it's a total mess. How does that even make sense? I do have a lot of storage but I've come to the conclusion that I just have too much stuff. A big clean out is certainly in order.

I picked up two storage bits when I visited Moss Cottage recently. I love this shop and if you live near Dundrum you have to visit it. I did a post a while ago on products I bought there, you can have a look here. The stock available is beautiful and if you like vintage stuff you'll definitely love this place. Both items I got wouldn't be regularly classed as makeup storage but I think they work really well. I fell in love with the tiny vintage chest when I first spotted it. I decided then and there that I couldn't leave the shop without it. Jenni told me she picked a few bits up in France and this was one of them. I like everything about it especially the floral artwork. It was pricey at €14.95 but I'm in love with it so it was worth every penny. I haven't decided what to use this for, I'm thinking nail polish but I may change my mind. Next up I have my Beauty Bits and Bobs jar were I'm storing the products I want to use more. Basically the ones I feel like I've neglected or haven't given enough love to in the last while. Being a airtight jar, I don't close it as I'm sure that's bad and will make the products go funny. As you can see there are quite a few in there, so you may see them in a empties post soon. In Moss Cottage there was a selection of jars like this one in all different sizes. I got the largest one available and it cost €4.95, which I thought was such a bargain. I love how there's a little label included that you can write on, it's such a nice touch. I'm planning on going back and buying a few more.

Do you have any storage ideas or tips you'd like to share?
