Does clutter make your already busy lifestyle even more chaotic? Are you looking for organization solutions that can help transform your home and reduce the chaos?
Organizing large spaces like rooms and closets is not too difficult to figure out. Drawers, on the other hand, are usually left to fend for themselves. It’s when drawers won’t close that most people consider organizing them because really, how much difference can organizing such a small space make?
Well, adding up all the drawers in a house can actually amount to a lot of storage space. Here are a few tips to follow to utilize this space to its maximum.
Each drawer should have a purpose
In most homes every drawer is fair game for storing anything and everything. This isn’t a problem until every drawer suddenly becomes a junk drawer and nobody knows where anything is! To prevent this from happening, count the drawers in your house and assign each one a specific purpose. One drawer could be for stationary, another for paints, another for socks, etc. It’s probably inevitable to have one junk drawer, just make sure it doesn’t spread to other drawers.
Dividers, dividers, dividers
Drawers are already small spaces, but their potential should not be underestimated, especially if they are organized drawers. Consider using drawer dividers to create sections in drawers. These dividers could be as simple as cardboard or you could purchase them at a local hardware or home store. Plus, California Space Organizers offers custom jewelry drawer dividers.
A good alternative to drawer dividers is to use specialized trays made for drawer organization. These can be found at local hardware or home stores. However, if a quick fix is needed, cupcake trays are great for sorting smaller objects like paper clips, spare change and pins.
