For the entire month of April, 12 bloggers will be sharing the process of cleaning and organizing drawers around our homes each week. We kicked off the first week in the kitchen! This week we have been doing drawer organization in our Office, Craft and Living Rooms. I am going to show you how I got my file drawer organized (out of desperation!) in just 5 minutes!
Welcome to the Drawer Organization Blog Hop!
File Drawer Organized In 5 Minutes!
I do not have a conventional desk in my office. My husband and I built-in a desk from wall to wall. This gives us so much more workspace! It’s fantastic but that left me with only the small thin top drawers of the file cabinets we used for support to store things like paper clips, post-it notes, pens……you get the idea!
The problem is that it was difficult to find a way to get my file drawer organized!
The Before Drawer!
It had been driving me crazy. One day, out of sheer desperation, I decided I had to do something about it! My first thought was to run to the stationery store for a desk organizer. That only lasted a sec because they are so expensive! I prefer to come by things on the fly, cheaply, by way of a “find” at Marshalls or Ross….or have an epiphany at the dollar store! ( Oh! Look at these great ____(fill in the blank) They would be perfect to get my file drawer organized!) You know how that happens. It’s so much more satisfying than just going and paying full price for something!
So there I am walking around the house thinking to myself..”box?”….. no. “baggies?”…..no. Thinking and pacing, I ended up in the kitchen where some of my little plastic storage containers were waiting to be put away and I thought they may just be small enough to fit in the drawers! They did! 6 fit perfectly and left enough room for my mailing labels, glasses and scissors (and a couple other long items) to fit snuggly along the front and sides!
It took only a couple of minutes to toss everything into individual containers! So this is how, in just 5 minutes, I had my File Drawer Organized!
No more chaos! Glory be! I hope you found something inspirational for your life and home from my “File Drawer Organized In 5 Minutes” post! Please feel free to share this with the Pin below or on any social media you use! I’ll see ya soon!
