long 6 drawer dresser – Drawers are great for hiding all kinds of stuff, often within an unidentifiable mess. On the other hand… maybe that’s not really excellent. Hmmm, here’s a notion. How about a Shop organizer? Or two or three?
Most of us have a silverware organizer in our kitchen. Without it, all of the forks, knives, and spoons are a tangled jumble, and placing the table would be a real chore. However, we often don’t think of all of the different regions of our home in which a drawer organizer could create order out of chaos.
Here are a few ideas for your bedroom dividers:
And for the bathroom, Stax includes a modular method of trays for coordinating your cosmetics and other bathroom supplies.
For your office or den, how about a “crap” organizer to your table drawers? Made Smart creates a 5-compartment organizer which offers icons in each compartment to inform you what belongs there.
And in the kitchen, there is no limit to the uses for drawer organizers. In addition to the standard silverware organizer, the Expand-a-Drawer line has spice organizers, as well as cutlery and utility trays.
A few tips for coping with a drawer organizer:
- Make sure you understand how big the drawer and receive an organizer that fits.
- Take everything out of the drawer and wash it out with a spray cleaner or hot water and detergent.
- Before you restock the Shop, go through the things you’ve taken out and declutter by throwing out or recycling things you no longer use.
- Take the opportunity to move items that don’t belong to this drawer for their appropriate home.
If you follow the above steps with each drawer in your house, pretty soon you’ll be so organized you will not understand what to do with your spare time!
