Great Organizing Idea

Friday, February 14, 2014

I wear a lot of socks. I have about 10 pair of white socks and probably 10+ pair of black socks.

On the black socks; I have thick ones, thin ones, long ones, short ones, casual ones and dressy ones. OK, I have socks emoticon emoticon

Today after I got back home, I collapsed a medium sized cardboard box down flat and put it in my living room. I was going to toss it out when I had this idea that I had seen in a magazine. {Sock drawer organizer}. I am thinking..... You know, I could make my own sock drawer organizer from all of that cardboard I am about to throw out.

I was thinking that doing this will help me, by recycling and organizing. And it will also keep me from eating when I am bored. And that last one made me get busy.

All I had to do was measure width, length and height. I only needed 4 pieces of cardboard 2 long and 2 shorter. They were all the same height, but different lengths. I evenly measured each piece 1/3 of the way in from each side, Then cut the cardboard halfway down and the other piece the same way and just put the put the cut sides together like a criss cross and press down. And then I had a 9 slot space for my socks.

This looks great and cost me nothing but time and energy. And I feel better after I had finished, because this will help me be more organized.

Definitely color me happy. emoticon emoticon

    Good way to divert your attention away from food and getting organized too is a win-win in my book:)

    Alternatively, some wine cases have cardboard dividers in them and can be picked up for free from supermarkets/ wine stores
