5 Tips for Destashing and Organizing Your Beauty Products

Updated: Apr 24, 2023

Subscription boxes can be a lot of fun and addicting to discover new things every month, but at some point when the products pile up, it can lead to feeling overwhelmed. Additionally, if you're purchasing similar products from stores, you can end up with a lot unused makeup, skincare, and beauty accessories (like makeup brushes).

Dedicate half a day to commit to getting organized. If you haven't heard of the KonMari method, it's a great place to take some inspiration. It's strange how much mental energy your physical stuff can take up. When all your objects have a "home", you may be surprised to find a sense of peace. When you know how, it's easy to stay organized once and for all.

1. Keep your eye on the prize.

Don't buy any new organizational units until the very end. If you're excited for a new vanity or better storage solution, use that as motivation and your reward for when you are finished. If not, promise yourself a small something new when you're all finished and have the room to give your things a dedicated home.

2. Lay out everything you have and sort them by category.

You don't need any fancy containers, any old box will do. This is not the time to go through your products to decide what you want to keep, giveaway, or sell. It's pure sorting. Nice and simple.

3. . Hold each item in your hand and see whether or not that item "sparks joy".

In other words does it make you happy to own it? Would you rather keep this one and hope that you use it one day, or do you wish you had bought something else? If it's the latter, it's time to let it go. You only have so much space, and you can't keep absolutely everything.

4. Keep things that you love with zero-guilt.

If you're sentimental about some of your things and don't want to give it up, it's okay. Keep it. If you're sad about letting something go, take just a few seconds and have a moment of gratitude. Be thankful that at one point you acquired that item and it brought you joy, but now it has fulfilled it's purpose in your life.

5. Rehome your items that are still in good condition.

This way you are reducing waste by giving the item to someone who really wants it. If you want to sell your item, the Glou Marketplace is the best place online to sell your makeup, skincare, and beauty items.
