More Organizing (More Like Re-organizing)

After my last trip to Ulta I came home to an upsetting realization - I was out of room in my nail polish drawer.
Part of Closet Clean Out (an ongoing/never ending project) is trying to keep all my things organized. It's not perfect, but I'm making progress. When I did my massive clean out and sale, I culled a good 20 bottles of nail polish. Having a whole drawer devoted to them, there's no reason to not have room and not have them organized. Seeing how I had my nail polish organized and hair accessories organized, it seemed pretty obvious - flip them. 
I don't know why this didn't occur to me before. Obviously I have less hair accessories than nail polishes, so it makes sense for them to be in a smaller organizer. Head bands won't fit in it, but there's still room for them, they're easy to see - works fine for me.
So. Much. More. Room. 
Apparently one of the keys of organization is also re-organizing to maintain room for everything. Or maybe this a problem only I have. Who knows.
Either way, I'm happy that it's a better use of space in both drawers. And I have plenty of room to add to my nail polish collection. 
That's not how my mind works. No. Not at all...

It's no surprise that you had no more room for polish. My problem is lack of drawers. And I have so much jewelry I don't have room for that. It's hard to pick what to wear if you can't see it through a jumble.

Have a nice day.

That's an amazing set of drawers you have to organize your nail polish and hair accessories. I would love to have a space that organized. I am trying to start with my jewelry...and I'm literally starting from scratch.

I really love the organization of the nail polish. I may have missed it, but what did you use as plastic separation for everything?
