Storage ideas: A post full of containers + NOTD

If you are like me, chances are you probably have a lot of little sample packets from different cosmetic/skincare brands. Some of them are probably GWP [gift with purchase] or perhaps from a gift from another beauty blogger?
Whatever the case, do you use them?

Sometimes i take them away with me when i go on a roadtrip but more often than now, i only get one use out of them.
Its rather wasteful since there are usually a few uses in each packet but i find it difficult to store them for more than one use as they inadvertly leak or perhaps get dry due to exposure etc

A friend of mine [Mami-chan] reccomends using a sharp pin to prick the packet so there is just a small hole and u can keep using it for a longer time.

Here’s what i decided to store them in..

I bought the containers from Hong Kong

The store name was Bonjour. Sadly since the price tag is missing, i have no idea how much they cost.

Always make sure you wash/disinfect the containers

Sample packets usually contain around 5ml of product. Its quite a lot isnt it?

I’m testing two eyecreams from Kiehl’s.

Hopefully i can figure out which is the better one?

One can use the containers for bbcream samples too [much less messy than a packet that might leak]

And if there isnt quite enough in one sample packet..u could always top it up with the full size item
longweekend-12
Much easier to travel with a tiny container than the whole bottle of BBcream

The possibilities are endless!

Decorating the containers with stickers : optional step XD
longweekend-14
Fairytale stickers are from Tokyu Hands

They fit perfectly in my eyelash case
longweekend-21
Its a Rilakkuma candy case from Lawson convenience store which i bought over a month ago

Here’s another case
longweekend-19
The Hello Kitty case is from a random store in Taipei [bought it ages ago]

Its a really small case..a MAC MSF is almost larger…XD

Since i was washing container bottles, i also refilled my pump bottle with Lancome BiFacil
longweekend-1
The other bottles are for shampoo/conditioner/bodywash/hair treatment/stuff XD

As for the flat boxy containers..well…
longweekend-2
Do you ever have stuff you depotted but dont intend to bring on a particular trip?

Where do you store them in? I’ve started storing them in these containers
longweekend-3
Sometimes i carry just one of these containers if i dont intend to bring an entire palette as well

Speaking of palettes, here is a comparison pic of the BYS palette, Unii palette and Z-palette

Review coming soon!

I re-read what i wrote above and it sounds like i have quite the obsession with storage and containers.
And if you think so too, you are right, I do.
I looove organizing and dont get me started on filing. [Regular readers will know how crazy i am in love with filing things]

Its FRIDAY! Have you got any plans for the weekend?
Me and my sailor themed [or 4th July themed..watever u prefer] nails are going on a roadtrip with my family! CANNOT WAIT!

Expect tons of roadtrip twitter pics from me [Follow me @yumeko55] esp FOOD. XD
NOTE: I didnt paint my nails myself, i had my nails done at the salon [Elina's Nails] They are UV Gel nails :) Do you like them?

Have a fabulous weekend!
XOXO Yumeko
