A little reorganization

Awhile ago, I found a picture on Pinterest that inspired me to organize my bathroom drawer using flower pots.

When I first organized my drawer, I used mediums flower pots. While cleaning out our garage, I found a box full of small flower pots and decided to swap out the medium pots for smaller ones.

In order to protect the pots from make up stains and keep them easy to clean, I used coffee filters as liners.

So here is the before when I used medium blue pots

And here is the same drawer with smaller terra cotta pots:

I like the smaller pots because they allow for even more organization. I have all of my items sorted into more specific categories such as powdered make-up, eyeshadows, eye liners and mascara, brushes, Q-tips, contact lens cases, contacts and hair ties and bobby pins. It keeps everything in their own little pots and I’m no longer digging around trying to find something. Much better! All it takes is a little reorganization.


Hooray for Rain!

It rained here today, and I am so happy to see the damp soil in my plants’ pots. It’s been extremely dry for over a month now. During the drought, I’ve been patiently watering our flower pots by hand and since our voluntary watering ban was put in place a few weeks ago, I added hand watering our gardens to the list as well. We finally decided to call it quits on watering our lawn and its starting to suffer. Hopefully more rain is on its way soon.

Thankfully, our gardens are still going strong. Last week, it cooled down enough to mulch and the layer of mulch is helping keep the moisture in the flower beds.

Our Black-eyed Susan’s are also doing really well despite the drought. I think they are getting a decent amount of shade from the tree in our yard.

Stay cool everyone and if you are in a drought area, I hope it rains soon!
