Simple Drawer Organization...


**Hello! If you are here visiting from IHeart Organizing, Welcome!! I am so glad that you took a moment to check out my blog! I hope you enjoy this post and take a minute to look around!**


My computer desk has two tiny little drawers that have always been used as a bit of a "catch all". Pens, paper clips, cords, screwdrivers, stamps, passports... it all gets tossed in these two spaces. The lack of organization means that things were getting crumpled, jammed and forgotten/lost on a regular basis.


I had been meaning to tackle these drawers for a long time and finally got down to business a few weeks ago (I was inspired by a shiny new set of sharpies!).


I kept it very simple, using craft paper to line the drawers and then folding and hot gluing the same paper down to make dividers. I also cut a document tube (paper towel roll would work just as well) and covered it with craft paper to make little cubbies for all of the cords I use on a regular basis. Of course, a little washi tape added that extra little touch!


This little project was quick (just one nap!), simple and cheap. I love that all of the space in the drawer is utilized. Also, since the paper was not attached to the drawer it can be changed and updated when needed. Perfect!

    I firmly believe that keeping it simple is the best way to go. :)
