Like all drawers in the house, they get disorganized when I try to cram multiple things into them quickly and absentmindedly walk away to get other things done. After a while, I find myself raking through them to find what I need. My bathroom drawer was no exception. I had hair ties, bobby pins, earrings, hair clips and eyeliner to sift through.
At first, I thought of placing small plastic bins in the drawer to put like items together and found very few options in the stores. My drawer is small (14” by 5″ by 3″) so not too many things can fit. I cut up a cardboard box to the dimensions and was going to insert cardboard dividers but I realized that was time consuming.
I went out on a limb and realized that the bottoms of granola and cereal boxes were a great, cheap alternative if I can get over the fact that I’m cutting up boxes of cereal to organize my life.
I had to hunt down boxes that would fit the dimensions and it worked out. I just placed some scotch tape on the bottoms in case drops of water spilled in. This is an easy way to keep the drawers neat.
