My daughter’s top drawer is seriously the worst in the house. She has lip gloss, stick-on earrings, and hair ties mixed in with socks, underwear, and tights. My hope is that this easy system will help her easily organize and find the items she needs daily.
- 1 Sheet of Poster Board
- Utility Knife
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Pen (or something to mark your measurements with)
Lay your poster board on a cutting mat.
Measure 3-4 inches from one of the short sides of your poster board. Mark the measurement in 4 to 5 places across.
Next, use your ruler as a straight edge along the measurement marks and cut across your poster board.
Continue measuring and cutting until all of your poster board is in strips.
Now, pull one strip of poster board and add a strip of hot glue to the left side edge.
- The photo above is for reference only, don’t actually put entire glue sticks on your poster board strips. Lol!
Add a second strip of hot glue to the center of the strip of poster board and press the second strip of poster board on top of it.
Lastly, add a third strip of hot glue to the right side of your strip of poster board and again press the second strip to it.
Next, add 2 strips of glue where pictured on the top of your second strip of poster board and immediately press a third strip of poster board on top of it.
Repeat steps 5 through 8 until all of your strips of poster board are attached.
Now pull apart your organizer.
- If you are having trouble getting it to stay open, push the opposite glued seams together for each section.
Since this organizer doesn’t take up the entire drawer, I also added a pencil box and small plastic cup. The pencil box is now holding her stick-on earrings, lip gloss, and perfume. The cup holds bows, hair ties, and barrettes.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
