Cereal Box Separators

I really had a disorganized bathroom drawer and had difficulty finding stuff in it. It doesn't help that the toddler rearranges things in it either. I was really hankering for those plastic basket organizers for pencils and things. I sat on the idea for awhile and then came up with this idea. I have tons of cereal boxes. I cut off the side of a cereal box and taped up the flaps.

And there you have it. In the drawer you can't see the cereal pictures so it doesn't look bad at all. (BTW I did not buy the plastic basket you see in the front of the drawer. After making my cereal box separators, I found this slightly broken one in a free pile at a thrift store)

I used to do this with my desk drawers.. but I used empty kleenex boxes with the top cut off :D

Bottoms of 1/2 gallon milk containers work well too!

Cereal boxes also make great boxes to hold manuals and CD's that comes with a pc or other household items.Stick all the booklets such for the pc/washer..whatever in the box, close the box top with some tape if needed and label the box. Now you don't need to hunt down those things, just open the box and it's all in there. Line up all the boxes on a closet shelf and they're always easy to get to.

The boxes your checks come in are a good size to use for drawer separators too. That's what I've always used. Never occurred to me to cut down cereal boxes. But now that you've mentioned it, I can think of a number of places I can use them--especially with long skinny scrapbooking items.
