I like happy drawers! Opening a drawer filled with chaos does not make me happy. :)
Trust me, not every drawer in my house makes me happy right now. But it’s good to have big dreams, though, right? One drawer at a time.
One thing I know about myself now (that I didn’t always know) is that if I am going to succeed or complete a project, I have to keep it simple.
Sometimes it’s fun or helpful to go buy a few specific organizers or containers for a project. But I’ve also found that if I just look around the house, I can often find something I already have that will work.
My goal is to make a drawer feel tidier and prettier than it was, not make it Pinterest perfect. Really, anything that can “corral” things will often do the job, such as a box lid, a bowl, a teacup, a tray, a sandwich bag, a basket.
As long as the end result is a somewhat tidy drawer and I feel happier when I open it, I count that as a success!
One way I like to organize drawers is with shallow bowls, trays, baskets, or dividers. I realized the other day I do this in almost every shallow drawer in my house!
