Do you want to optimize the storage space AND keep those tiny items in your drawer nicely organized? Make simple drawer dividers that will cost you nothing else but a few minutes of your time and a piece of cardboard to be reused instead of thrown away. Here's how.


  • some sturdy cardboard (a box from the latest trip to the grocery store?)
  • measuring tape
  • scissors or cutting knife
  • (optional) some wrapping paper you really like and glue/double sided adhesive tape.




HOW TO MAKE IT



Do you want to optimize the storage space AND keep those tiny items in your drawer nicely organized? Make simple drawer dividers that will cost you nothing else but a few minutes of your time and a piece of cardboard to be reused instead of thrown away. Here's how.



1) First measure the interior of your drawer - height and depth.
2) Then cut one piece of cardboard: "height X depth" if your divider will go in the direction front-back, like mine.

3) Optional: cut the wrapping paper to cover all sides of the cardboard piece and wrap the cardboard using some glue or double sided adhesive tape. Place into the drawer - done!

You can tape the ends to the drawer to stabilize it (especially if you plan a heavy use), but it's not necessary if you've measured precisely and the cardboard will be stuck between the front and back of the drawer.

All done in three steps only. Well, the third one is optional, purely decorative. Your choice!

You can use the DIY cardboard dividers in any space, for any purpose. That messy kitchen drawer, a toy box, a tool box - you name it!

  1. Such a simple idea that will help a lot. I find those ready box dividers eating part of the space as they take more space than what you can fit in them. They are also often measured to something close; part of the box is left empty (of course so small that you can't use) and/or your stuff won't just fit in the compartments. I will have to start thinking about something like this. :)
