Some storage options

Hi everyone! 

This post is especially dedicated to my Chennai followers who are few but very valuable. I recently found a new shop that sells all kinds of storage items such as baskets, boxes, containers of different shapes and sizes. It's a small store called "SAMA" and it is located on CP Ramaswamy road parallel to where the flyover ends. It's next to the newly opened Apollo clinic on that very same road. 

I checked out the store yesterday and was delighted to find a few things to store and organize my makeup in. I must mention that quite a bit of the stuff in that shop was very reasonable priced. So here is what I picked up.

1. 1 set of plastic storage drawers priced at Rs. 250. 

  • The drawers are about 8-10 inches high so they are not very huge. 
  • I think they will work great for e/s, eyepencils, lipsticks etc. 
  • Each individual drawer is about 1 inch deep and extends about 6 inches. 
  • The width is around 4 inches (I hope this gives you a good idea of dimensions.)
  • There are a total of 4 drawers.

2. 1 set of storage trays priced at Rs. 150.

  • These come as a set of 3. 
  • The trays are around 2 inches deep, 2 inches wide and 10 inches long. 
  • You can use them for blushes, compacts, lotions etc.

Here are some pics! 

With  my cell phone, to give you idea of size!

If you get an opportunity, do check it out! I can't wait to transfer some of my makeup into this! 

So see you all next time! Thanks!
