Fab Find Friday – Good Grips Storage

I promised I’d tell you guys about the perspex goodies I used for the bottom of my Makeup Storage display. They are so fab, I thought they would be a perfect fit for my Fab Find Friday!

They are called Good Grips made by OXO. They come in a variety of sizes and they have little grips that interlock, allowing you to create your custom configuration. They are used primarily as drawer liners, so you can store stuff like stationary, tools, hair clips etc in your draws without them looking messy and untidy. I used them to store makeup!

While they certainly ain’t cheap, they are good quality so they shouldn’t break too easily, and I like them because you can build them yourself. Even if  do find a new way to store my makeup, these have a multitude of uses.

For my setup I used three medium trays as well as two long trays and you can see below how all my makeup fits into them. If you look closely, you’ll notice that everything fits in and doesn’t stick out, with the exception of my front long tray that has some palettes sticking out – but that was ok for my needs.

I got mine from Boardmans and I think I paid R49 for the medium trays and R65 for the long ones. They also had small squares that I loved, but these were’nt really practical for any of my makeup to fit into so I took them back. I think those little ones were 35 odd Rand. If I was using these for bobby pins, they would have been ideal!

Have you come across any fab storage solutions? I’m obsessed with keeping things organised so would love to hear your tips.

    I’m so happy that you posted this! Your storage is amazing!
    Off to boardsman I go… I hate my current pink drawers that I’m using.
    If only I could find something similar to the clear cube! 🙁 But this is a great alternative!
