I fully endorse the idea of organizing drawers with the help of dividers, trays, and bins so that things stay contained and tidy. (See my story on how I conquered my junk drawer here.) But it’s hard to get excited by most of the drawer organizers, mostly made of plastic, that are on the market these days.
Recently, I was pleased to discover that Marie Kondo had come out with a line of pretty Hikidashi Boxes made of fiberboard and sized to fit dresser drawers. I was encouraged again when Kristina tracked down 7 Favorites: Kitchen Drawer Organizers, Non-Plastic Edition. Then last week, Justine emailed me another find, small compostable wooden trays by VerTerra Dinnerware that could easily be repurposed as organizational tools: “These are supposed to be for food, but I think they would be great for cosmetics or desktop,” she wrote.
Inexpensive, minimalist and pretty, and eco-friendly to boot: They may just be the perfect drawer organizers.
