Who says you need to spend money to be organized?
We all know how easily drawers get messy. Items get mixed up, and it’s made worse when we’re in a hurry and dig through the drawer to find things.
Instead of feeling frustrated every time you open your drawer, make the experience pleasant by using drawer dividers. Save up old boxes and arrange them in your drawer to keep your items apart. You can even nest smaller boxes inside of larger boxes.
In my drawer I have used old business card boxes, an envelope box lid, an checkbox lid, a lid of a box that my Bible came in, and other boxes I had left over. Somehow, boxes always seem to fit — the key is to use small boxes to keep things apart.
Total cost: $0.
I love it when organizing is cheap!
