I just relocated from Orlando to Tampa about two weeks ago, so needless to say, I’ve been completely overwhelmed by unpacking the 936808 boxes of accumulated random stuff. As most of you know, I’m a former pageant queen, so approximately half of these boxes consist solely of makeup, cosmetic brushes, and beauty paraphernalia. I literally hate not knowing where my things are, especially when I need them to get ready in the morning, so bathroom organization has been of the utmost importance. Although my master bathroom is pretty dang gorgeous, I strangely don’t have a whole lot of vanity-style surface area. Upon my inaugural trip to the neighborhood Target, I was literally ecstatic to see that Caboodles— yes, the same fun and fabulous brand known for creatively organizing makeup in the 90s– are back, and they now make cosmetic counter top acrylics. I snatched up two different Crystal Clear styles, and Operation: Organized commenced.
I finally feel like I’m settling in, and I love having my stash of beauty essentials organized, displayed, and ready for use. Like I said, the architect who built my house didn’t design a floor plan around my makeup artistry needs, and the fancy-looking, yet surprisingly affordable, Caboodles acrylic cosmetic organizers have made my makeup rearrangement and storage efforts so much easier. They run between $10 and $25 dollars per acrylic, and you can choose between a few different layouts.
Keep an eye out for the new Caboodle storage products at Target, Walmart, and Ulta. Of course, they still make their signature Caboodle on-the-go makeup cases, so next on my shopping list is a good, old-fashioned Caboodle for my car– since I’m practically living out of it while I assimilate and drive back and forth between Orlando and Tampa. Hopefully, things will feel more settled in the very near future. Prayers welcome!
