Free Designer Storage!

You don't need to spend loads of money on storage devices for your dressing room! In fact, you don't need to spend anything to get a designer storage unit. Just keep all your fancy paper bags when you purchase something special. You'll be amazed at what you can achieve with them.

I sort of stumbled on this idea by accident. I bought a bottle of my favourite Chanel perfume and when I got it home and took it out of the bag I left the bag sitting on my dressing table, I was too lazy to go to the bin, but mainly because I really liked the bag and so after a few days of it sitting on my dressing table it looked quite cool, like it belong there. It wasn't long before I started using it to throw things into, cotton wool pads, makeup brushes, hair clips etc.

So, over the course of the next few months, I extended this idea to larger bags. Not any old one though, it had to pass the aesthetic test and look pretty cool. I love this Guess bag and it looks really funky randomly sitting on the floor of my dressing room. I have filled it with scarves which were otherwise shoved at the back of my wardrobe, barely visible. The Allsaints bag has my hats and gloves in it and the Hermes is currently just looking good with no contents. The present that came in the Hermes bag also came in a fabulous Hermes orange box which I use for jewellery and again it looks great sitting on show.

Great money saving storage idea which doesn't look cheap because only the best bags are allowed in!
