Let’s Get Organized {Happy Drawers}

Clever organization to make life easier - Organized Junk Drawer - Drawer DividersBHG

Do you have a ‘junk drawer’ in your house? Raise your hand if it makes you HAPPY like that drawer above when you open it. I can tell you right now that the worst junk drawer in my home does not resemble that one. Nope, not even a little bit. On the contrary, the worst junk drawer in my house just makes me SAD when I open it. But now I’m inspired to make my junk drawers happy drawers. Because why be sad when you open a drawer?

After searching for pretty organized drawers online, suddenly I feel like every drawer in my house needs cute little dividers. And every drawer needs to be color coordinated and lined with adorable patterned paper.

It really only takes a few minutes to empty out a drawer, sort everything out by category and throw out what you don’t need! Add a few drawer dividers (or whip out the pretty paper too if you’re feeling fancy), and you will have a magazine-worthy junk drawer in no time.

Ready? Let’s get inspired for a fun weekend-project!

Remember my baking drawer? It’s still organized just like this, using what I have to divide small items.

What else could you find around the house to use as drawer dividers?
