Drawer dividers are an organizer’s best friend. They allow for separation within categories of items and make the items easier to see and find. They also keep those items from sliding around inside the drawer.
Often, my clients already have organizing products, like drawer dividers, we can utilize. Or, one of my favorite tricks is repurposing empty small cardboard boxes that the client might have lying around. Either way, it’s important to contain those pens, paperclips, thumbtacks, sticky notes, etc. so they don’t turn the client’s desk drawers into a chaotic mess.
Instead of shopping at the Container Store about once a week in an attempt to get organized, try using the organizing products you already have, so you don't need to keep going back to get more stuff.
