My BARGAIN acrylic storage







Osco '3 drawer paper sorter' (large drawers) £27.99

Osco '3 drawer stationary organizer' (Small drawers) £11.99

As soon as I posted instagrams of my new acrylic storage, alot of people were asking me where I'd got it from! And as soon as I'd organised it all properly I could'nt wait to share it with you all! I'd previously been using a cupcake patterned stationary organizer for my makeup, but I was forever lusting after the infamous Muji collection. However, postage and packaging and the thought of broken expensive acrylic drawers really wasn't for me. SO i spent HOURS pouring over eBay and countless google pages in search of 'see through drawers' 'acrylic drawers' 'makeup storage' you name it - i googled it! It seemed like Muji was going to be my only hope until I discovered the brand 'Osco' at office retailer 'Rymans', Would you believe my large set of drawers is actually a paper sorter at £27.99!? and my short set are for pens etc at £11.99 (and they were prices BEFORE student discount!). I couldn't believe my luck and having a Rymans a stones throw away from my house it would have been rude not to pick these up. As you can see from my photos they are longer than they are deep but it still gives you alot of room and I'll be buying another smaller one in the near future as it fits mascara and pencils in PERFECTLY. The see-through compartment holding my nail varnishes is actually an old Ferroe Rocher box if you were wondering! Just proves you two can get hold of some beautiful acrylic storage here in the UK without spending a bomb!

P.s if you'd like me to film a video so you can really 'get to know' this storage arrangement - let me know!

What do you think of acrylic storage? Do you own any?
