Review: ClosetMaid 8 Cube Organizer & Fabric Drawers

Day 76 of Countdown to Christmas

I have an addiction with STUFF. I love to collect just about anything I can get my hands on. I have TONS of beauty products- skin care, lotion, hair care, makeup!

The worst part about it was I didn’t have anywhere to put it. I had it stacked on random bookshelves, dressers, and side tables. It didn’t look very neat and organized, AND it was harder to get to what I needed at the moment.

When I got a chance to review the ClosetMaid 8 Cube Organizer and 4 Cubeicals Fabric Drawers I was PSYCHED. I would now have somewhere to put all my stuff. Now that I live in a smaller place, it’s hard not to have to store most of it.

I didn’t want to store anything beauty related though. The heat and/or cold could possibly do serious damage to all of it. The best part about these organizers is all the choices of colors!

I was in storage heaven! There were four different color Organizers, and seventeen different colored fabric drawers. I wanted to make sure that I got something that contrasted with each other, to make it POP more!

I also wanted to make sure that the color of organizer I got would stand up to little fingers!

This didn’t take me hardly anytime at all to put together. It was together within 35 minutes. It comes with the two longer side pieces, the smaller pieces to attach to the sides to make the cubes, and then the back panel pieces and all the screws and attachments.

The only tools I needed to put it together was a hammer and a screwdriver. So nothing that any household doesn’t have. Doesn’t take up much time, and is easy to put together and move around if needed.

I was so excited when I got it put together and put up in my small bedroom. The wood is VERY durable and sturdy. I have piled numerous amounts of curling irons, blow dryers, straighteners, shampoos, conditioners, styling products, and makeup and I still have room.

I ended up getting the black organizer, so that no matter what- it will always be easy to clean and dust. White isn’t such a great idea in my house- where there are two small kids under 5- AND I love the way the black and light green compliment each other.

I love that no matter what color scheme you’re looking for- they have it. Whether it be a bright neon type of color, a dark shade, or a pastel!

It was very hard for me to decide which color to choose. They are all very pretty. The bright colors were my absolute favorites; yellow, orange, blue, pink, and green. But since Green is my absolute hands-down favorite color, I just had to go with it!

I love that the stand can either sit upright and be 8*2 or you can lay it on it’s side to make it 2*8.  I stood mine up so that it is taller than it is wide. I could stack my makeup organizers on the very top (not in the drawer space).

Then in order; Night creams, day creams, toners and such in one space, teeth whitener and bronzers in another, hair styling tools, shampoos and conditioner, lotions and body butters.

I love that everything is easily accessible and in such a pretty case. I definitely am going to buy a couple more. I want one for my closet when we end up moving (tax time) so I can organize hats, scarves, and shoes.

I also want to buy one for my craft books, binders, and crafting supplies. I love that these can basically accommodate anything that is placed in them. These would even be great to store in the bathroom to store towels, washcloths, and soaps and such.

They have such a sleek, modern look to them. They spice up any room with it’s simple yet beautiful design. AND it makes organizing a breeze!
