Does your bathroom drawer look like a disaster area with makeup and creams etc everywhere?

Next time you are at the $2 shop, pick up one of the cheap cutlery drawer inserts and use it to organise your makeup drawer.

With 20 mins work you will have a user friendly drawer. Make sure you also use this time to throw out any old makeup.

Tip of the Week - Pen Tips

Posted in 'Clutter' on July 14, 2009

Pen Tip #1:

 

Next time you are on the phone and are placed on hold, or just chatting with a friend, open your pen drawer (or pencil case or container etc etc) and grab a piece of paper. Then go through each of your pens and check if they work. If they don't, toss them. Next time you need one in a hurry, you won't be stuck with a pen that doesn't work.

 

Pen Tip #2:

 

If you are like me, you are forever searching for a pen to write down a phone number or add to the shopping list. Keep a pen permanently on top of your fridge. It won't get lost underneath piles of papers and if it is always put back, noone will pick it up and move it.
