The following closet tip is a guest post on divided containers from regular contributor, Kristin at The Gold Project.
It is not a secret. I am a huge fan of divided trays. I use them in almost every room in my house. I like that they make my drawers look uniform and put together and they also do not cost a fortune. You can find them at just about any retailer; Wal-Mart, the dollar store, Ikea, Target, and the list goes on.
Today, I am sharing the top ways I use them in my home and at work.
Divided Containers for Hair Ties
I have all of my hair ties divided out by type: headbands, bobby pins/barrettes, small ponytail holders, large ponytail holders, and clips.
Divided Containers for Mailing Drawer
Mail used to be a crazy beast in my house. That is until I got a system that works for me. I set up this system in 2014 and it is still going strong today. My extra checks get a compartment, my address stamp gets another, and then envelopes are organized by size.
Divided Containers in Work Desk Drawers
Opening my desk drawers at work makes me happy. I see a drawer full of bright office supplies divided by type. I have highlighters in one compartment, erasers in another, then tape, pencils, and pens.
Divided Containers for Makeup
I have tried several different ways to organize my small makeup collection, but I always go back to a divided tray. I like to keep all of my lip products together, my eye products together, and foundation type of products together. So, when I am putting on my makeup in the morning, I know exactly where everything for each area of my face should be located.
Do you use divided trays to organize in your home? I would love for you to share your ideas with me.
My name is Kristin and I am a middle school career education teacher by day and a mommy/wife/blogger by night. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two loving children. We recently made a life-changing move to Arkansas, so our new house is always under construction. I get excitement out of finding new creative, functional, and cute ways to organize things! I also enjoy writing and documenting life as it happens. So, I put these loves together and created The Gold Project. With the help of my husband, I am attempting to turn our house into a home. So, check out this special place of mine and take this journey with me!
