What To Do With Old Packaging?!

Today I was reorganizing my makeup station/desk and I always keep my most use makeup items on it. Everything is pretty much organized. But I tend to accumulate stuff like new polishes that I want to remember to use and if I put them in my rack I know I will forget to use them since I buy so many. I also always keep my most used Primers, Tinted Moisturizers, Foundtions etc. easily accessible. Well I decided I needed to keep them more confined lol they were starting to take up to much room....well for me anyways. So I decided to go through my cabinet where I keep old packaging and boxes I have gotten that I could use again. I took out one of my Sephora V.I.B Hat boxes we got not to long ago and instantly knew I could use it!! So this is what I did.

Sephora Hat Box
*I simply turned it upside down and it is deep enough to place all my face products I use daily in it!! Altogether I fit in:
-Make Up Forever HD Primer
-Skin79 BB Cream
-CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua
-Neutrogena Healthy Skin
-Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer
-Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer & Illuminating Tinted Moisturzer
-Laura Mercier Primer
-Revlon Color Stay Mineral Mousse(trying out)
-Philosophy Miracle Worker
-Tarte Smooth Operator Illuminating Serum
-Revlon Age Defying Face Illminator (trying out)
-Benefit Total Moisture Face Cream
-Benefit Triple Performing Facial Emulsion
-Benefit Stay Don't Stray Mini Primer (it's so small it always gets stuck in my little cup organizers. But it fits in here perfectly)


-Nail Polishes I haven't worn yet & my most used base and top coats.
-I just took the ribbion and wrapped it and tied it around the base. You can secure it with hot glue or double sided tape.
So there you have it. When I see packaging that I know I will eventually get some use out of. I never toss it. I acutally have two of these Hat boxes so when I need more room I will use another one. I like that it keeps all the items secure and together!=D
Pictures are mine=)


  1. Great idea! I need to do something like that as all of my crap just accumulates until I can't find anything!

  2. i love reusing packaging too!
