Storing that Makeup

ClassiccaboodlesWhat's the best way to feel like you're in the seventh grade again? By being picked on? Sure. Or for a less traumatizing experience, just buy a Caboodles organizer. I had one in pink and I get my lipgloss and school supplies.

Thankfully, there are a lot more subtle options nowadays and your new Caboodles experience doesn't have to be completely 80s retro.

CaboodlesSince I wanted to have a nice, central (and inexpensive) place to store all my new makeup, I picked up the Ultimate Organizer in black at my local Walgreens. There are more options, online however. It's a nice sturdy organizer, though I wish that the depth of the drawers was a bit more. The makeup brush holders on the sides will help preventing me from losing my brushes -- the one downside is that the case won't shut when just a standard blush brush is in place.


Overall, a good starter case for me.



You know, I still have and use everyday my original Caboodles from 1990. My husband, of all people, is oddly attached to it ("How can you throw that out? You've had that thing since we met!"), so I can't bring myself to get rid of it, but it's hideous and doesn't hold everything like it should. I love the one you just bought. I think it's finally time I retired my old one.


That is so funny, I have the pink Caboodles case. It fits everything just fine with room to spare at this point, the older I get, the less makeup I wear. The thing is, even though I wear less, it takes longer to apply? It really does look quite hideous, but it is stored away in the closet when I'm not using it, my husband still laughs at it though.

Great blog, I love the header!
