Shaker Thumbs is your opportunity to give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to a product or service you have used and that you'd recommend to other Shakers or warn them away from.

Today, I'm going to give a big ol' thumbs-up to this Drawstring Cosmetic Bag. It comes in a bunch of different colors and patterns, but I got mine in "Lovely Flamingo" to match the outdated vintage vibe of my 1960's bathroom, lol.

It works very simply: When you open it, it spreads out and allows you to view all your makeup at once. I keep all the things I use frequently in here, and then the stuff I use much more occasionally is stored neatly in a closed box in the corner of the vanity. I could fit a lot more in here, but these are my go-to products.

And then when you're done, you just pull the drawstrings to close it, tuck in the drawstrings, and fold it closed. It literally takes seconds. And then I've got a nice, clear, clutter-free bathroom countertop!

I have tried many things over the years to organize my makeup in a way that I liked, and this $10 thingy is the absolute best. Nothing else has even come close! I get to see everything I need at a glance, and then I get to put it all away neatly in a moment. I LOVE IT.

And it has the added bonus of keeping my basic makeup kit pre-packed for anytime I go away somewhere. Such a simple, nifty item. Thumbs way up!

Anyway! Give us your thumbs-up or thumbs-down in comments!
