Everyone out there has the ubiquitous junk drawer, right? But even after that first drawer is chock full of scissors and batteries, have you ever wondered what to do with the rest of your drawers?

Sometimes, people’s homes just have more drawers than they can actually effectively use. It might sound like a great problem to have, but the truth is that a lot of people aren’t quite using their drawer storage as effectively or as completely as they might want to. Either every drawer winds up being used as junk drawers, you try to cram too much into one drawer in the hopes of saving space, or some combination of the two, and you just aren’t using your on-hand storage the way you should be.

To help provide a little inspiration, we’ve found three of our favorite ways to turn drawers into the storage you need!

 

Bathroom Drawer Medicine Cabinet

A lot of people tend to disregard the drawers in their bathroom for anything other than their hair straightener and maybe a few toothbrushes you haven’t needed to open yet. Conversely, how many of us out there have tried to put too darn many things into a medicine cabinet and just made the whole thing messier?

Bathroom drawers can easily become the perfect place to store excess medicine, extra beauty products, or things you reach for most often like aspirin and first aid ointment. Depending on the size of your drawers, you could either slide in some drawer organizers to give everything a home, or to save space you could cut up some cardboard boxes and make the liners that way. (Make sure not to keep anything too dangerous in this drawer if you have curious little hands around the house!)

 

Nightstand Storage

A lot of bedroom nightstands have drawers, but a lot of people have the tendency to turn those into junk drawers and clutter the top of the nightstand with things like chapstick, watches, and glasses. Empty out your nightstand drawer, and set up some flat storage bins or plastic storage dividers to sort things like sunglasses, phone chargers, and maybe even that book you’ve been meaning to start.

 

Home Office Drawers

The drawers of an office desk can get awfully cluttered up with paperwork and office supplies, even if you’re not in there very often. The first step is to purge everything you don’t need, as half the clutter in there is probably receipts from years ago that you didn’t actually need for your taxes after all. After that, figure out what actually needs to go back in your drawers and use dividers to keep everything together. To avoid re-cluttering your drawers, larger items like paperwork, notepads, and user’s manuals should be kept on the desk itself using desk organizers to stop it from getting so messy again.
