My goal for when we move is to have Multiple Helmers for my nail set up, along with a manicuring table. I would love nothing more than to have helmers for polish only, nail art supplies, mani/pedi supplies, gel/acrylics supplies. Yes yes I know that is like a zillion helmers, but I love these little cabinets! plus it is super easy to move a drawer from one to the other. and for something so small they fit A LOT!
I have plans to get more for other storage needs once I no longer live with my mom, I have big big plans for these little helmers! I'm sure I'll end up with a second 9 drawer alex since the one I have is almost full of makeup now!
OH I almost forgot I picked up 11 (I meant to buy 10, but in my excitement of shopping in Ikea I forgot how to count) antonius inserts, they are $3 each, but being that Ikea doesn't ship them and well Ikea is about an hour and a half away, which doesn't sound like much but when you have to take the parkway to the turnpike its far! So I will plot and plan my trips to get the most bang for my trip! I also picked up the rationell variera drawer liner, I bought 2 rolls, and I think I only used a roll and a half so far.
This was only my second trip to Ikea, but I have a tip for newbies like myself to shopping in Ikea! The store can be overwhelming, because they are well HUGE and you will want to look at everything! I created a shopping list on Ikea's website, then I printed it out, and when I printed it out I sorted based on where my items would be located in the self service area. Most of the smaller items were just listed, but the Helmers and Antonius units were in the self service area so they had they Aisle and Bin numbers already. Also if you plan on buying smaller items, bring bags, you don't get shopping bags from Ikea, I didn't know this (stop laughing veteran Ikea shoppers).
OK OK enough blabbing!!! Here they are!
