snowed in, I’m becoming more motivated to start thinking about spring cleaning a little early this year. (I’m looking at you closets!) I’ve done a couple of drawer clean-outs and what I’m noticing is that the drawers that are labeled and have compartments so we know where to put things away are the neatest drawers. It’s the ones where the rule is “Oh, just go put it in the top drawer on the left” where chaos reigns. (Please tell me it’s not just me who is perpetually asking her spouse, “Do you even live here?” He doesn’t know where anything goes or where to find anything. We’ve lived in this apartment for almost two years. Seriously, pay attention.)
Anywho, have you priced adjustable drawer organizers lately? They’re pricey, like $20 or $25 each. When we first moved into this apartment and I was trying to integrate my stuff and Chuk’s stuff and maximize our storage I came up with a cheaper solution: Origami. Well, I didn’t come up with origami, but I came up with an idea to use it for storage.
There are lots of instructional YouTube videos about how to make a box. This is one of them. (I'm sorry; I can't get it to embed.) Unfortunately, there is an obnoxious ad at the beginning of it, but it only lasts a few seconds.
Free custom drawer organizers work for me!
