Organizer ~ Michael's

A week ago I went to Michael's because we had to get some stuff for my son, for a project.

While I was there browsing around I saw this organizer and thought it would be great for my makeup, brushes, and such.



I took a closer look and when I picked it up I KNEW it had to be mine! But it was $50. I might spend a lot of money on makeup, bags, and clothes without even thinking twice about it but when it comes to other things not so much, lol! I didn't get it though.

Later that night I went to Michael's.com and apparently they don't have an online store but I read that if you signed up for an emailing list you will receive a coupon that you can print and use in store for 40% off one regular priced item!

I printed it and went and bought it the very next day since it was such a good deal! Grand total $32.50.

I thought this would be a better way for me to organize the stuff on my desk and try to keep it clean!

I try to keep my desk clean but at the end of the week it looks like this! Not pretty! Before

After

From the top of the organizer


I have the stuff I use most in it, brushes, hand sanitizer, face stuff, eye liners, and lip pencils.


It even has 3 pull out compartments. I filled two of them. One with Q-tips and cotton pads.

The other with Urban Decay eye pencils and hair clips.


OK so the coolest part about this organizer is that it SPINS! That's why at the beginning I said I had to have it as soon as I touched it. I realized it did that when I picked it up! So I can just spin it to get to what I want, which I think is awesome!


The only con I have but it's not really a big deal for me is that the sections are pretty deep. So deep, that if u have shorter eye or lip pencils you wouldn't be able to see them. Even the brushes sank in. BUT you can fix that, like I did with adding a filler in the compartments so everything is raised up.

Overall I have really been enjoying my new organizer! It has been helping me keep my desk neater. I'm not sure if it's sold at every Michael's but check it out. Don't forget if you would like to save $20, sign up for the email list to get your coupon. You can always opt out of the emails afterward ;-)

So what do u think of the organizer? Have you seen it at your Michael's? Would it be useful for your organization?

A few gurus on youtube featured this organizer, but I haven't seen it at Michaels. I like the coupons Michaels sends every week, don't think I'd need to opt out :-) Just that the 40% (or sometimes 50%) coupon is good for 1 item only, so it's gonna be multiple trips to get all the stuff I want, lol

Hey,
