Fun Find!

While I was home, my mom and I went into the Dollar Store, and not for any particular reason, I just wanted to look. It had been a while since I had been in some type of dollar store and I always enjoy going in them because you never know what kind treasures you may find.

On this particular trip I found these small, plastic storage containers and I thought, "This would be perfect for travel!" I bought the pack on the left, but they did come in a larger size as well. I found them in the craft/school section so I'm sure they are meant for something used for crafting like glitter. I, however, had other plans for them.

Before I left on my trip for home I was wishing that I had something like these containers. Generally, I'll use these two small Clinique sample jars I've gotten in the past and wash them out each time I use them for a different product, but I couldn't find them. I had to settle on bringing the full size product in some cases and even though I wasn't flying, I still like to keep it to the minimum to save space.

The package comes with 8 containers and you guessed it! They only cost 1 dollar.

The only down side that I have found of these so far is that they have a pop top instead of a top that screws on. As long as you make sure you've pressed it down all the way around, they seem pretty secure, though.

Ideas for uses:
  • You are traveling and your foundation is in a glass bottle or you just don't want to bring the entire bottle.
  • You have foundations you are trying to use up that might not be your shade, you can pre-mix your perfect shade and store it in one of these containers so you don't have to do it everyday.
  • You're a fan of the OCC Lip Tars or something similar and you like to mix a lip shade, this is a good way to have the shade already mixed to pop into your purse for touch ups.
  • You're traveling and only want a small amount of any cream-ish product, such as, moisturizer, spot treatment or the eye makeup remover lotion I talked about in my last post.

I thought that this was such an interesting find because I saw it where I never expected and I really needed them! Let me know what you guys think and if you can come up with any other uses!
