Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? If you can tell I’ve been talking a lot about organizing and cleaning out. If you didn’t know this about me, I LOVE organizing and like I’ve said before the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to really get organized. Today I’m showing you how I organize those pesky samples I get from different places. When they are organized how I’m going to show you, I swear you will use them so much more. Keep reading to get your organizing skills on!
How To: Organize Your Beauty Samples
I don’t know about you, but when I get samples from Sephora (you can get a bag full of samples at Sephora a few times a year), Ulta, or my IPSY bag chances are they are going to get shoved into a deep dark drawer never to be seen again. Seriously. So I decided instead of letting these things get piled up and never used, I would fix that problem. Keep in mind this is the EASIEST thing to do.
What You Need:
A Glass Jar of any size (mine is pretty slim and tall with a lid as you can see) found at TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, Target…
A plethora of samples
I think you can see where I’m going with this but if not…
What To Do:
Put all of the samples in the jar until it is completely full… sometimes you just have to play with it because samples are usually different shapes and sizes.
So how easy was that?!? I know right, like the easiest thing ever and it actually looks good.
I keep mine on my bathroom counter so when I’m washing my face or getting ready for the day I can see those and I’m telling you I am so much more inclined to using them when I can see them.
Also if you don’t want to put it out on your counter, another really great place to keep a jar full of samples, is in your guest bathroom. Perfect for overnight guests who may have forgotten something like a moisturizer, or eye cream. If you plan on keeping it in a guest bathroom I would put a mini toothpaste and some small body wash or shampoo too.
This is a really easy DIY kind of project that you can do in about 5 minutes. Let me know if are going to do this with your samples!
Also follow along on Instagram for a new series called #SampleSaturday where I will be taking 3 samples from my jar and testing them out. I will share with you if I would purchase the full size or not. Use the hashtag #SampleSaturday if you want to play along too! :) I will keep going until I run out.
Do you get a lot of beauty samples?
