Perfume Sample storage and how to organize them, I need help! You would think I’d have this figured out by now, I’ve been perfume sampling for about a decade, um, vigorously, and I still can’t figure out how to organize it so I can find it. Here’s an example.
Just a few boxes of perfume samples and minis, and I only pulled out one of the storage bins. I have no idea what is in any of these exactly except lots of stuff I should do something with. I have many more bins of these and makeup/cosmetic/skin care samples. And I don’t even want to talk about my yarn stash. For someone that’s only been knitting less than a year, it’s ridiculous. Here’s one small part of it.
I have more wicker baskets and several storage bins full as well. But we aren’t talking about my yarn problem today, just my perfume sample storage problem. So how do you guys organize and store your perfume samples? I used to have a system, but it got overwhelming – spreadsheets, tracking it. I’ve toyed with doing just zip-loc bags and doing them alphabetically. Yes? Do you have some great storage device that works for perfume samples and decants as well? I’ve worked out storing all my perfume bottles well enough because I had to, but everything else is just mystifying me! So post your best solution or best problem, let me know if I have permission to republish, because I’d like to put these together in a future post so they are all in one spot.
Oh, and I am so proud that I am finally getting on knitted garment done that looks like it’s supposed to! It’s not done yet, I’m putting on the bottom ribbing and cuffs on the sleeves, but it actually isn’t lopsided, it looks like the picture. I’ve done a lot of other nongarment things that are starting to turn out pretty decent, but this is the first garment that has worked. I’ll post another picture with the final garment once it’s all trimmed and then blocked. So excited!
BTW, Perfume Fairy Godmother post will go up this weekend!
