I currently live with my boyfriend in a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment and at times it feels like it's just not enough room. Things tend to get shoved here and there without much order so the first thing I did was reorganize my closet space to fit as much as I possibly could but still keep it neat and tidy. Then I had to face the leftovers and figure out what to do with those things.
When I put on my makeup, I sit at our desk in the second bedroom, which we use as an office. The desk also holds my sewing machine, my bf's computer, our printer, a lamp and other random things. I needed to find something that would hold my makeup and be easy to move around if needed rather than having makeup scattered everywhere. I bought a drawer organizer from an office supply store to solve this. The organizer is only for the makeup I use on an everyday basis. The rest I have in small plastic drawers in my bathroom. This setup will change after I get a vanity but is the best option for now.
My eyeshadow palettes didn't have a home either so I bought a letter holder they could sit in and take up less room.
Both of us subscribe to various magazines and too often do they wind up all over the place! I decided to get a magazine holder which can be found at multiple places (office supply stores, Target, Walmart) and decided I would only keep the most recent issues in the holder and throw the rest away.

Headbands, hairties, combs, and clips were strewn all over our master bathroom counter. I needed something to hold them all in one place so I went to Target and searched their dollar area. They had cute little storage containers in different colors and patterns for a dollar each! I picked up 2 and have one in each bathroom.
