Ever buy makeup and then realize it's totally wrong for your skin tone? Nikki Kinzer, professional organizer and owner of Take Control Organizing, assures that it doesn't have to go to waste. "Any unopened makeup that is not going to be used can be donated to a local women's shelter or local high-school drama department. Rule of thumb: If you haven't used it in the last year, you won't use it!" In fact, she says, we generally use only 20 percent of what we have. When sorting, ask yourself: Do I use it? Do I love it? Do I really need it?
