Organizing my house is definitely a favorite activity of mine. Yes, there’s work involved and sometimes it can get a little tiring. However, there’s something incredibly satisfying and exciting about taking a messy drawer and transforming it into a beautiful, tidy space. Today, I’m sharing how I organized my nightstand drawer using DIY organizers that I made out of cardboard boxes! Now, all my nightstand essentials, such as lip balm or Extra® Gum Spearmint, have a dedicated spot in my drawer!
DIY Drawer Organizers
I love Extra® Gum, so I was totally excited to find the new Extra® Gum 35-stick packages at Walmart! These larger packages, which feature durable recycled packaging, are so convenient and adorable. I love that with these new packages, I can always have more gum: more gum to enjoy myself and more gum to share with others! These larger packages also make it so easy to split between different places: between home & work, between kitchen & bedroom, between car & home, etc. I picked up two different varieties: Extra® Gum Spearmint and Extra® Gum Polar Ice®!
My husband and I always love to chew some Extra® Gum in the evenings. The great taste and low calorie content make Extra® Gum a definite hit in our house. I always keep some Extra® Gum in my nightstand, but my nightstand drawer was definitely in need of an organizational makeover. Here, take a look at the “Before” drawer!
Here’s what you’ll need to make these DIY Drawer Organizers!
various cardboard boxes
The first thing I did was empty out the contents of the drawer so I can assess my inventory.
To figure out the proper height of the little drawer organizers, I simply placed one of the boxes in the drawer and marked the top line with a marker.
I then cut out the box at the marked line. This is what I had at this point.
I then cut several different boxes and placed them in the drawer to figure out the layout of all the organizers.
I then used the scissors and double-sided tape to wrap a box with the scrapbook paper.
I wrapped the remaining boxes with various scrapbook papers of complementary colors/patterns, and placed them all in the drawer.
Now, I re-filled the drawer with all the contents, placing each item in a designated space. Everything has a place now! This puts a big smile on my face! 🙂
I love that my drawer is not only pretty to look at, but it’s also totally functional now!
I’m totally going to create this little DIY Drawer Organizers for other drawers in my home. This was a fun, quick and easy project!
And my Extra® Gum 35-stick package is so easily accessible, so I can hand one stick to my husband in the evening when he asks for one! Because he will ask for one or two sticks of gum!
With Extra® Gum 35 stick packages, you can “Give Extra, Get Extra” of the gum you love!
Be sure to look for the Extra® Gum 35-stick packages in the checkout lane at Walmart.
Now, learn more about the new Extra® Gum 35-stick packages and tell me: Do you find yourself sharing gum with people around you? Does your nightstand need a boost in the organization department? Have you ever used cardboard boxes to make little drawer organizers?
