Not sure how to use your drawers to stay organized? Here are some tips, followed by some photo examples, to inspire organized drawers that are practical and pretty!
Steps for organizing your drawers:
Give your drawer a purpose
Discard unwanted items
Categorize remaining items
Clean the drawer
Measure the drawer (width, depth, height)
Purchase and install drawer organizers that will contain each of your categories, fill the space edge-to-edge, and match the aesthetic of your drawer (or space)
If needed, use a drawer liner to keep things from sliding
Move everything back into the drawer
Label if needed and educate your household about the new drawer
Always return items to their new spot
Tidy up the drawer from time to time if needed!
