Before and after : my cosmetic drawer

What you need to know about me beforehand : I am not a messie but I'm not a neat freak either. I'm somewhere in the middle, but I can have my days more in the one or the other direction, it depends...
Last week I had my pointer moving in the neat freak direction so I finally saw the cosmetic drawer under my bathroom sink for what it was : a major MESS ! I am so ashamed of it that I can NOT show you a big picture of "before" nor can I show you the complete "before" drawer in its messy gorgeousness, sorry...
Here is the picture of the left side of my drawer before I put my "neat freak goggles":

 To find a cheapish solution I went to the dollar store of course, my wallet isn't comfortable around the designer stores ;-) This is what I found :
 
That is what I call cheap: 3 containers for 1 $. And lovely colors to... Talking about recession design !
And just by chance they fit perfectly in my two drawer compartments. I started with the right side of my drawer and what a difference it made immediately :
 
Here is the finished result :

Not only am I very proud of this little recession design achievement of mine, I now spend no time at all searching for my pots and tubes ! (btw, can you tell I love Clinique products ?) Everything is right there before my eyes. Another thing good to know about me : I DO accept pats on the shoulder. So, can someone give me a pat on the shoulder and tell me how great job I did with this drawer ?  Just kidding ! Or not ... ?

Ahaaa! I can vouch for the messy drawers before the transformation. (BTW, I think she even 're-arranged' the drawer in the before picture, it was muuuuch messier lol) Am proud of you mama! That drawer was way overdue for a makeover!! And the Clinique addiction??? Totally my fault... I got her hooked! :) Can't wait for her next post!
