How to keep your drawers tidy
There are some things in life that never seem to stay tidy for long. Drawers - be they for clothes, Tupperware, underwear or stationery - fall into this category. Despite our best intentions, without some extra help and support drawers can quickly become quite feral. “Help and support?” you ask - you’ll soon learn that is exactly what I mean.
Lets quickly analyse the reasons drawers can get messy:
Stuff slides around when the drawer is open and closed.
Stuff gets dumped in willy nilly.
Stuff gets messy when we rootle (yes, it’s a word!) around looking for something.
Want to kill three birds with one stone? Compartmentalise, my friend! Inserting a set of baskets to create separate “zones” within the space is the fastest road to drawers that will live tidily ever after - it gives the stuff in your drawer a bit of extra support, which helps it stay nice and neat. This is a cost effective solution that is super easy for anyone to implement. And guess what? It stops your stuff from sliding around, willy nilly dumping becomes a thing of the past because your stuff has a designated place to live, and no need to rootle for your stuff as it is very easy to see exactly what is in the drawer. See? Three birds, one stone.
Of course it all depends on the measurements (height, depth and width!) and what you’re organising, but here are a couple of products I love using to keep drawers looking dreamy.
