If you are a beauty junkie, or even if you’re not, it is very easy to accumulate beauty product sample packs. Online and brick-and-mortar retailers regularly include them with purchases, and it’s always exciting to get something so small and so cute. I am not one to resist free beauty products!
The tricky part with many sample packages is that they’re not so easy to store. You might not use the entire portion at once, so if it’s packaged in a rip-top packet, here’s a trick I learned many years ago.
Stick a sterilized safety pin into one side of the packet so the contents don’t get all over the place. To sterilize the safety pin, or whatever you use to make a cut in the packet, dip it in some rubbing alcohol and let it air dry. Next, put the packet in a Ziploc plastic bag and voila! Your small and cute sample pack stays fresh for a few days.
Now, when it comes to storing my samples, I put them in little cups and containers that once belonged to my son. Kiddie cups or small plastic wear containers are great for holding little packets!
How do you organize your beauty product samples?
