Some days it’s like the internet gods are smiling and for me, that day is today. Just last night I was complaining for the hundredth time about how all the loose odds and ends in my kitchen drawers would never stay in place (despite the several types of dividers I tried —they all slid around too!) and today I came across this amazing tutorial from the blog I Heart Organizing for a cheap and easy DIY solution that doesn’t harm the drawer (so it’s rental friendly). I’m doing this one this weekend.

So much better. The key here is wooden hobby boards which are available at most hardware and craft stores. They’re measured and cut to the right lengths (which also means a custom fit), then secured together with construction adhesive which dries clear and smooth.

And because the boards are glued to each other and not the drawer, the entire thing can lift out and leave the drawer divider free anytime. So smart!
