Frugal organising with cereal boxes

This is what works for me!

With cereal boxes




With more cereal boxes and cardboard dividers for glasses



The box on the left was a set of fancy teas I received as a gift

And this is my favourite - muffin cases from Woolworths (and ice-cream containers)

just this past week I have been cutting down empty cereal & other boxes to organise drawers!!

Marcia said...

Dramamama - you're very welcome
Ali - oooh, that makes me so happy :)

Great idea. I'm going to use it to organize my kids' underwear drawers. Maybe they'll be able to keep things separated for more than three seconds.

That's a great idea!

I do this with empty boxes too! It makes my small cupboard/pantry space much easier to organize, and my spices too.

Great ideas! I use icecream containers for various bits and pieces and margarine containers.

This is one of those times when I hit my head and say, "DUH, Why didn't I think of that?" It is so simple, so cheap, and so wonderfully smart. Now I can stop saving up for all those drawer organizers. THANK YOU!
