Storage for MAC Palettes-Gotta love The Container Store!

.

I got this idea from Lealyn23 who was featured on Pursebuzz. It's basically a crystal clear DVD holder/rack that fits your MAC Palettes. (And no it does not fit any other palettes unless it's the EXACT same size as the MAC palettes).

You can store it upright or sideways, and I bought it from The Container Store for $9.99. They have two racks, one that holds 14, and one that holds 7. I of course got the one that holds 14 because I will fill up the 7 in no time, so the 14 was worth the buck. I separated each palette, giving a space apart for easier access as well as making it easy for me to read the label on the palette.

They also had a sale so I got some mini stacking bins for $3.99 each to store random stuff like MES's, more blushes, etc.



How it looks if you store it sideways:


I liked it upright...




Holds perfectly!

i saw this, too. it's such a great idea. i only have 1 mac palette, though, so i don't really need it. haha. do you know of any other palettes that are the same size as mac?

Joey said...

That DVD holder works perfectly! I only have two palettes so far, I'm not NEAR needing a holder like that yet haha (: I could only hope to have a collection like you someday!

And the stacking bins are too cute. I wish I had a vanity ):

Vanessa, you are an organizing genius!

Lisa said...

Hi Vanessa! :) I love how you organize your makeup. I really need to start doing some organizing myself so I can bring all my makeup too college easier.

Anyhow, I went to Melody's Makeup Outlet today because I just couldn't wait! I felt like a little girl in a candy store. I bought some refill pans and I'm excited to start my first palette!

I'm hoping to drop by again soon but oh dear i shop too much :(

Gee said...
