Goodwill Goodies and Makeup Organization

Spin class: After eating that delicious meal yesterday, I HAD to get to the gym for spin class this morning to burn at least some of it off. Realistically, I probably burned off the appetizer...maybe half the appetizer since the meal was so rich and yummy.  One of the songs that was played was "We Built This City"...hello, 80s.

Spin class (check). 

Goodwill Shopping: I wandered over to Marshalls (didn't buy anything) and Target (came out with toothpaste and a toothbrush, armed with coupons for both items).  I also went to Goodwill, which I haven't gone to in a while.  I wanted to get some glass containers to put my makeup in.  I came out with 4 glass containers and a lamp shade.  The two dishes and vase were 96 cents each and the square container was $1.96.  The lamp shade was an exciting purchase because I had been wanting to get a new one for my bedroom lamp because the existing one had a small tear in it but I wasn't willing to spend $15 at one from Target.  I love the red color because it matches my bed skirt.

When I got home, I cleaned up the dishes and started putting my makeup items in their new homes.  The tall brushes fit nicely into the vase.  The shorter, but more used brushes didn't fit as nicely into the square vase.  I decided to buy some vase filler from Joann's (yay for having the new Joann's near my I don't have to make the trek to Michaels) with my 40% off coupon and my brush problem was solved.
After: "New" glass containers for my brushes up top, "new" glass dishes for my most used products, "new" lamp shade on the right. :)
When I walk walking around the store, I saw this cat sewing box.  I think it's so cute, but I have no use for it.   I will just admire it from afar.
More Organizing: The organizing kick continued throughout the afternoon.  I tackled my craft room closet and the white drawer container that holds more makeup (you can see part of it on the far left in the "After" picture above).  I didn't have any small boxes to put in the drawers and then a light bulb went off in my head.  Duh, I can make my own!  I used some colored printer paper that I had laying around and made four rectangular boxes that fit perfectly in the drawers. 
Before: eye products
After: eye products
Before: lip products
After: lip products.
