I decided I needed some type of basket to contain all of my beauty products because it would A) make it look nicer, and B) it would be so much easier to clean thus giving me motivation to clean more often. After searching Goodwill and Homegoods, I didn't find what I was looking for in size or price. Then I went to Target. Why didn't I go there before?? I started browsing around in the $1 section, and then found this! It was selling as a "Halloween decoration," but it was exactly what I was looking for! And at $2.50 to boot!
And just in case you don't believe me on the price...
This would have cost me at least $10 anywhere else (Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, The Container Store). Even the baskets I was finding at Goodwill were around $1 or $2, and I would have had to spraypaint them.
Here is another trick I use for my makeup tools, eyeliner, and mascara. I bought this glass mug at Walmart awhile back for about $2. It works great because everything is easy to grab.
What kind of things do you use to organize your bathroom counter?
