It’s one of the easiest home improvement organization projects ever: drawer dividers! Adding drawer organizers is the perfect way to give your home a much-needed clean start.

I love adding drawer inserts to any drawer in our home. From kitchen and bathroom organization to nightstand organization and every drawer in between, they change our home for the better!

We’ve all got a kitchen junk drawer, right? Or wait… is that just me? You know the drawer – it’s the one where you sweep every little thing inside when you need to clean your counters quickly.

Before you know it, the junk drawer can barely close and you have no idea why you kept so many of those objects. Why do we do this to ourselves? 

In fact, it’s not just the junk drawer that can cause trouble. It’s alllll the drawers! It’s so easy for these spaces (meant to simplify our storage) to turn into a breeding ground for disaster.

Drawer Dividers

Over the years, I have learned a few organization tricks that have made our lives so much easier. I’ve shared our pots and pans storage, our pantry organization, baking essentials organization and so much more. 

Today, we’re focusing on drawers. If you think about it, you might have drawers in every room of your home. They are so important for tucking away the mess!

These drawer organization tips will change your home for the better! Bathroom drawers, office supplies in your desk drawers, living room storage drawers – you get the drift. Any drawer in your home can benefit from proper dividers and inserts!

How to Use Drawer Organizers

For the most successful organization in your drawers, you’ll want to start from scratch.

  1. First thing’s first, measure the interior of your drawers and search for which insert (or in our case, multiple inserts) will fit inside your drawers. Ideally, you want very little gap on the sides for items to get buried and go missing! 
  2. Once you’re ready to place your dividers, you’ll empty your drawer completely. I like to do this one at a time – don’t empty every drawer in your house intending to accomplish everything at once! 
  3. Wipe the interior of your drawer down well so you’re starting with a clean slate.
  4. Place your inserts as they fit. Play around with various configurations to ensure the best layout for your needs.
  5. Now begin to return the items you’re keeping into your drawers. 
  6. Remember, now is the time to eliminate the things you rarely (if ever) use. 
  7. Place like items together! This makes it more visually pleasing and adds efficiency when you open the drawer to find something.
  8. Stand back and admire your brilliant organization skills!

Remember: now is the time to eliminate the items you don’t need or use. There’s quite simply no time like the present!

“Organization isn’t about perfection; it’s about efficiency, reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money and improving your overall quality of life.”

One of the things that I love most about a storage system like this is that it’s an excellent way to plan for future use as well as your current needs. 

Leaving an empty spot or two in your drawers will leave room for new necessities as your family’s needs shift over time. Check out the following detailed YouTube videos for more information on this simple trick.

    I see in your photos that you updated your kitchen backsplash. Will you share information about your tile. I prefer white tile patterns for the kitchen but many say it is too much white when cabinets are also white. Your thoughts?

  2. What a game changer these are for kitchen organization! Definitely going to do this in the near future!
