Viewer Idea for Affordable Makeup Traincase

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another post.  Yesterday I showed you the amazing Glamcor mobile studio and traincases but if you are looking for a cost-saving option for right now, this post if for you.  One of my lovely followers Ada came up with a great idea for an affordable traincase.  She went to the craft store for her solution.  You know I love going to my local Michaels to get items for my kit - from brushes, to my kit bag, to decorative items for avant guarde makeup.  If you're in the market for an affordable traincase make sure to check this out!

From Ada:

Also here's a tip that I wanted to share---I don't yet have the funds to buy the Yazmo traincases you recommended so to improvise, I went to Joann and picked up a nice rolling case for knitting!  It's so cute with a damask print and it was 59.99 but i had a Joann's coupon and it knocked off 40%!   So I packed my little caboodle train case into it along with a snapware organizer for my brushes.  I was so happy it worked out so maybe if you talk to aspiring artists, you can recommend a rolling knitting case.  It's sturdy and works for now!

This is an excellent idea! I have my first big job this Sunday. A wedding with 11 faces and I too don't have funds for the Yazmo bag yet. Great idea. I will be going to Michaels or JoAnn's today!

Love this post...this takes me back to when I first started my makeup kit storage. My first train case purchase was at Michaels. I got the scrapbooking rolling case, which looks similar to this post but wider and has side pockets. And I too used a 50% off coupon...so it definitely was a huge bargain. Always visit www.retailmenot.com for any retail coupons; it's my go to site anytime I'm out to do some shopping. :)
