goodbye chaotic drawers

Okay, time to fess up.  I’m infatuated with The Container Store.  Going for a few items will turn into an afternoon of aisle wandering finding little things and asking myself “what can I use these for?”  On my Monday girl’s outing we ventured to one of my favorite places so my friend could buy the Elfa Drawer System written about earlier. While there her mom decided to buy one, too!  I still can’t believe I didn’t get a discount for my referrals!  Oh well, I quickly got over my disappointment by finding wonderful new goodies.
After living in our house for 10 years I can no longer take the chaos residing in our drawers, cupboards, cabinets and closets.  Been slowly tackling them room by room.  Recently, it was the dreaded bathroom, or in other words, the place where cosmetics go to hide; never to be seen again.  Had had enough of losing things, bottles of medicine rolling around, searching and searching for the right hair accessory.  Now, most people would have organized their drawers right when they moved in…I’m a slow learner.  But after seeing these little boxes at my friend Heidi’s house a while ago I knew they would be my savior.   Finally figured out what I needed, made a list and headed to The Container Store. Our bathroom drawers are incredibly deep so these Linus Drawer Organizers were the perfect solution to bring the pandemonium into control.  I used a mix of deep and shallow modular containers, depending on what they would be holding.  Ranging from $2.99 to $6.99 each, they are an investment but with rubber feet to prevent sliding and made of clear, hard plastic they’ll last a long time.  And yes, I organized Farb’s drawers as well.
