Today I did the simplest organization and it felt so good to get it done for about $8!
There were a couple blog posts that inspired me for this idea. Jen from iHeart Organizing shared the following picture and post which I LOVED... but I don't have a Cameo and I haven't been able to find really cheap acrylic dividers.
I also loved Kate from Centsational Girl's post here and her awesome use of a kitchen utensil drawer divider. She made it fit so perfectly in her drawer though and I don't really think I have the time and energy to make this happen.
...and so enters my cheap and lazy way to achieve the same result.
Let's start with a scary "before" of my drawer in the bathroom.
Yes, it really did look like this on a regular basis... yuck.
Then of course you need a supportive little helper!
I just went through everything in my drawers and took things out of make-up bags and rearranged and came up with the following:
With space to spare! I just LOVE it! (Yes that is my retainer case- I still wear it!) I have to say as well that all the containers just happened to fit perfectly in there. I always hate when bloggers say "it just all worked out la-di-da," but it really is exciting when it happens! I was ready to sticky-tack the containers down so they wouldn't slide around. but they don't really move. I would recommend that if you don't have a configuration that works.
So there you have it, cheap clear plastic to give the illusion of acrylic. Amazing! I'm also debating about lining the drawer with a pretty fabric or something so you can see it through the bottoms, what do you think?
