I have a love-hate relationship with my bathroom drawers.
I love that they are big enough to hold everything I need, lots of things I want, and even more things I don't want or need.
What I hate is that they look like this:
When the builder installed them, he said: "Sure, I can put some dividers in, what do you want?"
Since I had no idea what I wanted at the time, I decided to wait and see what I needed. "Feel out" the drawer- ya' know?
Two and a half years later, I don't really think I can call him up and tell him EXACTLY what I want.
I think I would like to try something like this:
Bamboo drawer dividers from Crate & Barrel. At this point in my life, they are a little more money than I want to spend on something no one sees but me.
I'm sure I could settle for something like these:
Cheap enough- not very customizable, and pretty ugly for even just me.
So, instead of spending money on something I don't like, and don't think will really meet my needs, I improvised.
Enter the cardboard box:
Over a period of a month or so, (let's be honest- I still am) I took note of the boxes we were throwing away, and saved different sizes and shapes, and cut them down to fit into my drawer.
I dumped my drawer out, put some boxes in, and started organizing.
And this, is what my drawer looks like now:
Everything is nice and tidy.
It turns out, I really did need all of those things in the drawer- except for few things....yes, that is a "Jenga" block.
And that, works for me!
