I was going through my collection yesterday and noticed that there were quite a few products that I haven't used in a while. I typically reorganize my collection every few weeks; it is one of the few things that I can successfully keep in order! I rearrange the products, but I have never taken out everything all at once.
And that doesn't include my MAC individual eyeshadows. I thought that it would be easy... I was wrong. It may have been simpler if I didn't create one of my "oh so ambitious" plans. Like I said before, there are a lot of products that I don't use because I forget about them.
I knew that there had to be another way to keep track of the products, so I decided to just go for the most helpful yet time consuming option yet. I am going to catalogue every single product.
At first, I started taking pictures with my iPad camera for the thumbnails, but the quality was not up to my standards. I have decided to take "blog quality" pictures of every product to list it. Even though this may take a while, I will have a lovely database for new blog posts! I will not have to worry about taking new pictures of the products for tutorials and I can dedicate the time to taking better quality pictures of the look itself.
What am I going to use to catalogue my products? I have been contemplating the best way to do this on my iPad and am currently testing out a few apps. I will update when I have found my HG cataloging system!
Tell me in the comments how you keep track of your collection! Thanks for reading!
