I’ve haven’t been blogging as often as usual, and for that I apologize. We’re still settling in to our new place after the move. As you can imagine, this will warrant some new updates to the My Home section of the blog! However, it’s too embarrassing to display in its current state. I’m hoping I can have some progress shots soon enough.
Something I’ve been meaning to do since the move is organize my dresser drawers. They’re a mess!
Here are my essentials for drawer organization:
- Sort: You don’t want to organize what you don’t want to keep. Weed through what you have and donate as much as possible. If it hasn’t been worn in 6 months and isn’t a fashion staple, it may be time to say goodbye.
- Divide: I’ve been without these and it’s much harder to organize drawers without dividers. I’ve made my own from empty containers, but I find that they often shift when opening and closing doors. I think I may pick up some cheap IKEA dividers. If you’re looking to splurge, dividers in the same wood style as your dresser look amazing. See the photo above!
- Decorate: We have junk on top of our dresser from unpacking, but I’d like to decorate the top with jewelry, perfumes, or even just a plant or two. Dresser drawer tops can easily become the focal point of a bedroom. But beware of clutter!
A blog post of my dresser transformation will be coming soon!
