Save Money: Cheap Drawer Organizers

Have drawers that look like this? Check out this cheap and easy fix.


I recycled the plastic containers from fresh strawberry and blueberry packaging.   The colored boxes in the front right of the drawer are from a gift set.

Of course, I could go and buy plastic drawer organizers for a few dollars, but this works well for now and cost nothing!

Haha, love this especially since I’ve done the same thing – ink pad corral – repurposed strawberry container. :) They also make great craft supplies organizer. The 1 pound and 2 pound containers are great for ribbon spools. You put the ribbon spools in and thread the ribbon ends thru the holes. Instant ribbon dispenser.

I thought this was the plastic rack from Oreos which would probably work as well

Velveeta box bottoms are the best. I put tools–i.e. screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, dykes, levels— you name it in several bottoms in 1989 Numerous times a week I slide out the box to get the needed tool and to this day I have not needed to replace a single box. I keep nails and screws in pill bottles in a Velveeta box bottom.
