After digging through several of my OH SO messy drawers...just looking for 1 (frickin') item, I decided that I could not take it another day! Last Friday, I drove directly to The Container Store and purchased a boat load of "Interdesign" clear drawer organizing bins. I decided on this brand, since they had both a 2 and 3 inch deep version of these bins. From past experience, I was tired of shallow drawer organizing bins that hold maybe one brush or tube of toothpaste and leave a lot of wasted space remaining up to the top of each drawer. Since we could fit the deeper bins in our drawers, I bought these in several different sizes and shapes.
Over the weekend, I tried different bin combinations to find the best way to utilize each drawer and the items that I kept in them. I organized the top drawers in 3 bathrooms (5 drawers total) and our huge junk drawer in the kitchen.
Now that it is completed, I find myself wandering around the house randomly opening drawers...just to feel the rush of happiness when I see how tidy they look. My husband even noticed and gave me a compliment on how nicely organized everything is.
As you might see in the pictures below, I got so excited I forgot to remove the tags/packaging from a few of the bins. I will have to go back and do that. I also have to return the bins that I didn't end up using.
I AM IN LOVE!!!
Here are picture of just of few of my bathroom drawers.
If you decide to do this, search the web for coupons before heading out. I found a 10% off coupon, just for signing up to The Container Store's website. I use a secondary email address for things like this. This way my main email mailbox doesn't get clogged up with sale ads and advertisements.
