6 ways to SIMPLIFY (2 of 6)

This week is all about simplifying your home, office, possessions, routine...and most importantly, your life. Keep reading all week for more great tips.

Way to Simplify #2 = Cosmetics

Does your cosmetics drawer or cabinet look like a bomb went off? Could you lay your hands on your favorite hot pink nail polish in seconds or do you end up buying another bottle because you can't find the one you already own?

For makeup, cosmetics, hair products, etc the only way to make sense of it all is to containerize. It doesn't have to be a bunch of fancy matching boxes although those are fun too! Shoe boxes work just as well or the disposable food storage containers.

Gather everything you currently have and toss away any obviously old, no longer usable product. Now is not the time to lament money spent and wasted on stuff you didn't use. Bacteria can grow on old cosmetics and be dangerous. Just toss. Once you are sure that you have only kept the newer, safe products you will definitely use, then sort according to category. For instance, consolidate all nail polishes all lipsticks, all hair products and so on.
