No-Cost Drawer Organization... I Like It!

As promised, here is my post on a little organization project that I did over the weekend. I think I was drawing my inspiration from a pin I pinned on my "Getting Organized" board on Pinterest.
It is such a great idea!

Zach was outside working, and was inside, bored. I went into the bathroom, opened up my top drawer to get something, and was disgusted. The following pic is what I saw...

Beware: I'm going to swallow my pride & show a Before picture that I'm not proud of. (Think back to

This shows my main bathroom drawer BEFORE.
There is was just about everything in it...

I know...yikes...

I immediately started taking things out. Everything.
I then had a clean drawer, with the shelf paper actually visible. God bless the person who shelf-papered all of our bathroom & kitchen cabinets before we ever moved in! It is such an easy way
to keep them clean.

Once everything was out, I wiped the shelf paper down...

I then thought about those little Tupperware-type containers that are taking over my kitchen pantry. We have a carousel full of them, and probably use less than half of them. I grabbed up some of those, and brought them in to tackle the pile of stuff
from the drawer.

I was so happy to knock out two things at once: 
- organizing this mess of a drawer and
- making more room in the kitchen pantry...
All at no cost! Yay!

I even have extra room left in the drawer for more junk to acquire...

So, my Before & After...



I hope the original pin inspires someone to take the simple approach to organization. You don't have to spend a lot on nice containers- you can simply use what you already have! It only took me about half an hour to finish this up, but it is already cutting out a lot of time in my mornings. It was totally worth it-
cost-wise & time-wise.

I am excited about our weekend coming up! Our church women's group has a fun Girls' Night Out planned at a murder mystery dinner theater. I can't wait to spend time with some wonderful friends! Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Way Better!! Come share it at our linky party at ! Looking forward to seeing you there.

  2. I like your approach. Using what you already have is such better than creating more stuff!

  3. This looks great! I did something similar with our bathroom cabinets (we have ZERO drawers in our bathroom and it's working out wonderfully. Don't you just love organization?

  4. well, thank you for in fact sharing it.

    i have loads of drawers like this. all it requires is to collect same height plastic packaging boxes that are relatively sturdy.

  5. Look so good being organized, now I have to get my butt in gear! I also like your approach, using what you already have! So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – your creativity helped make the party a success!

  6. Great organisation!!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
