My Muji storage

Tuesday, December 03, 2013
I have spent quite a lot of money, over a few months, on Muji acrylic drawers - I buy the wide two draw clear acrylic drawers (£10.95 each), I also have one or two of the flip top versions as they didn't have the normal ones in stock at the time. I have one of the desk organisers too and I love the Muji storage for my makeup, I wouldn't want to use anything else, even though it is expensive!
Firstly, the drawers - the name of these drawers on the Muji website is 'Acrylic Box 2 Drawers Wide'. I have 7 sets of these drawers - that's a lot of money spent on makeup storage! But I have bought these over the past 8 months or so. I love these 2 drawer sets from Muji, they are clear so you can see what is inside of them and they are a great size. I can fit palettes, lipsticks, eyeliners, foundations and concealer etc in these drawers. I organise them into sections for example, I have one draw for concealer, then another for lip balms (I am a lip balm addict!). I have two drawers for lipstick, palettes and two drawers also for foundations. A few items do not fit in the drawers so I keep them in a clear plastic box that I stole from our kitchen cupboard! Also extra makeup items that do not fit as my drawer are all pretty much full, go in a gorgeous vintage rose patterned box I received for my birthday. 

I also have a desk organiser from Muji that I use to store my makeup brushes, eyelash curler, scissors, hair grips etc but sadly I can't find the one I have on the Muji website anymore but there are similar items - mine was priced at around £8. It is a great size for storing makeup brushes and I love to two smaller/shorter sections at the front to store smaller items. I find all of the muji drawers/items to be very high quality, they stack together nicely and they are really sturdy, durable and easy to wipe clean. 

Finally, I have a jewellery storage box from Muji that I thought I would mention. It is the 'Acrylic Jewellery Case 2 Drawers' which is £13.95. I don't have too much jewellery but I store all of my rings and earrings in this two draw set and the dividers in the drawers can be moved around. I keep my other larger items that will not fit in this small box in a loccitane box I received as a gift with purchase. Anyway, I love my Muji storage for most of my makeup, small items and jewellery. I think they are available in the US and other parts of europe, postage in the UK is around £2.95 and I find their delivery to be quick and fuss free. I would definitely recommend Muji storage! 

What do you think of my makeup/jewellery storage and what do you store your makeup in? x

  1. I think I need to take a page from your organizational handbook. I feel like my makeup and jewelry storage needs an update compared to yours. Beautiful! The Muji acrylic drawers look very pretty!

  7. This is so lovely! I just have all of my stuff in a couple of makeup bags and strewn all over my desk. Guess I should be a bit more organised.

  14. I think this is actually pretty clever. I've seen a lot of other women using big massive storage boxes but I really don't taking up all that space for makeup. I might try something like this though.

  15. I love how you're so organized. I have two of the acrylic pen style pots that I use for my brushes. I need to get me three or four of the drawer units now. Great post.

  29. I love the idea of these storage boxes but at the moment I don't have a big enough collection to need storage like this!! Amazing though.

  30. I don't have a massive makeup collection, so I only have one or two of these (and I use the MALM dressing table drawer too), but I love the quality of MUJI storage, absolutely worth the money in my opinion. I think it's lovely to be able to see what's inside of your drawers too! Beautiful storage.
