Looking organized is just as important as being organized.
I have two favorite products that help me “cheat” a little and look more organized than I really am. The first product is Velcro. I simply place it on the bottom of drawer organizers or baskets to hold them into place. It helps prevent everything from shifting around each time the drawer is opened and closed.
I recently moved into a house with a lot of cupboard space in my bathroom, I was so excited to finally have my own makeup drawer. Walmart carries white drawer organizers in packs of 3 for only $0.99 so I picked up about six sets in a few different sizes. I like these because they are inexpensive and if they get yucky you get simply recycle them. You can find velcro in any craft department, I like to use the velcro dots because they are perfectly sized and precut.
Measure out the drawer and place the organizers where you want them to go before you use the velcro, once the velrco is attached to the drawer it is not easily removed. Once you know where you want them to go, place both of the velcro pieces to the bottom of the organizer. The bottom of the velcro once it is attached should be sticky, once it is applied, firmly place them in the drawer. Doing it this way you can quarantee your velcro dots match up. After they are attached you can pull the organizers out at anytime and then simply reattch the velcro when you put them back.
This idea can be used in your kitchen drawers, desk drawers, and kids rooms. The items in the organizers might not be organized all of the time but it will look like they are! As you can see in the photo on the right, even my husband’s drawer looks organized.
