Pill boxes for storing sample pigments

I have a lot of mineral eyeshadows that are in baggies..& we know that not only is it inconvenient, but it makes everything all the more messy than it already is...

I also hate individual plastic jars...it's because im so clumsy that often times i end up misplacing them...so i prefer stackable jars....

If any of you have read my post about travelling with ease, i mentioned something about using pill boxes as my pigment storage... read that post for more info about what i do when i travel & have to bring my cosmetics with me.

Yesterday when i went to the bookstore to buy some bubble wrap envelope to have my prizes shipped, i went to a japanese store& saw this cute colored pill box...i remembered that i still have lots of pigment samples that are in baggies so i bought one.

Cute,huh?
7 colors...which stands for 7days actually..

This pill box have individual cover which makes them perfect for storing the colors...

So i went to action & put them one by one...


organizing them based on their color family....blue goes together with other blues...just so that it will be easier to remember...


And of course, i put the names of the pigments underneath...using a sticker label

Now i have everything neat & tidy!
The only downside is, the box that i got doesn't have rubber sides on them so it's not exactly spill-proof...Well, doesn't matter...as long as i have everything organized then im ok. Plus the fact that it saves me a lot of space compare to using individual jars,right?

If you have a pigments on baggies..you can also put them in pill boxes!
