"Can you try and clear off the kitchen table?" my boyfriend asks for the eighth time this week. I look over at the mess -- five nail polishes, a bag of cotton balls, three mascaras, six lip balms, a curling iron, a can of hairspray, and two bottles of shower gel. Oh, and four fashion magazines.

I would love to de-clutter, but whenever I think of organization, I imagine clear plastic bins with labels attached. I guess that works, but it's just so boring ... and ugly. Besides, some beauty products are actually fun to look at, like perfume bottles and colorful eyeshadow palettes. Why hide them in a drawer or in a bin under the bed?
But with my boyfriend threatening to move out, I decide it's time to tackle this clutter problem. Luckily, there's a bunch of crafty people on the web who know a thing or two about stylish organization, whether it's for makeup, accessories, or hair tools. If I get started now, I think I might have the kitchen table cleaned up in an afternoon -- or, alright, more like a week. Ready to join me?
