|Bins full of garage type items|
|Cabinet waiting to be productive|
|Garden items, including garden gloves|
|Sander in its own drawer|
|Something in each drawer, but plenty of room to add more!|
|Lots of room for more stuff!|
|More empty drawers|
After my tweaking and transferring my cabinet drawers ended up like this, with the top three drawers staying basically the same as the pictures above (the ones with the garden items and sander):
|Some drawers have a divider. That was even more helpful in organizing!|
Did you notice anything in common with all the drawers? No labels. Yet. I have it on my list of things to do. I'm thinking of putting a piece of plastic in each label slot that I can then write on with a dry erase marker. I might be able to then easily change the label when the contents change. Although I think a piece of paper with writing would be pretty sufficient, too. I may try that first. I will show you the labels when they are complete, because I know you want to see!
Darn. I should have taken pictures of my empty bins. I have at least seven large empty bins now that the garage sale is over and I have moved the items to the cabinet. I always think it is a good thing to have empty containers! That makes them available to use for temporary uses or for new uses if needed. I don't think I have personally bought new containers for over 8 years. Maybe more.
How would you label the drawers? Do you buy containers with some frequency or do you find that you can always find an empty bin to use when needed?
