Boxes (in this case mac and cheese boxes out of our recycling bin)
Glue (glue sticks, because I couldn't find the white glue
Tape (because glue sticks don't always hold forever)
Scissors (to cut the boxes)
and of course...the messy desk drawer!
So this is really quite simple! Take your boxes:
Cut one long side (front or back) off and then glue the tabs back into place (I also taped them just to reinforce the stick glue). Viola! A nice desk drawer organizer! Now all you need to do is empty out the drawer so that is space to put your new organizers! Really I just moved most of my stuff to the boxes then shoved the rest of out the way so I could arrange them.
I used the cut off front/backs of the boxes as little dividers until we get more empty boxes to use.
Overall, much better and easier to find things (like the stamps that kept getting lots under all the pens!)
There you have it simple and cheap (I didn't spend anything extra on this!).
Now to work on the desk top!
