In very exciting news, my finance and I bought a house. In super stress inducing news, omg now I have to sell my house and pack all my stuff! So this has been a very busy week. Not to mention that it’s September and we both work at a university, so we’re both really busy at work too.
In preparation for selling my house, I’ve begun major de-cluttering. I have moved quite a few times in my life (probably 10 times) so I thought I’d show you some of my tricks for packing. I love the empty bathroom tissue roll for necklaces, or in my case a paper towel roll I cut into 3 sections; I have a lot of necklaces. This is a great way to keep them from getting all tangled. Plastic snap lid containers and plastic sandwich or freezer bags are also great for keeping jewelry organized.
This little “I heart lipgloss” mini suitcase is one of my most favourite gifts that I have ever received. I have had it for ages. I decided to use it to pack all my lip products. And I finally had a use for all of those small cosmetic bags that I accumulated with my Ipsy Glam Bag subscription! lol.
I labelled each one with removable masking tape into these categories:
- Drugstore lipsticks
- High-end lipsticks (ended up needing 2 of these)
- MAC lipsticks
- Lip liners
- Jumbo lip pencils
- Lip gloss
- Lip balm
They all fit snugly into the suitcase.
Thanks for stopping by ❤
