Organize My Drawers

I love it when someone asks me to organize anything!

I was born the oldest of seven kids and with the gift of organization; and nothing makes me happier than to help other people.

It will be one year in June that I launched Neat Freak McKinney . And on this amazing journey, I have met so many interesting people and companies on Instagram.

One of these amazing companies is called Organize My Drawer. When they reached out to me to see if I wanted to collaborate, I was ecstatic!

How cool is this acrylic insert? It fits perfectly into my drawer! 

Their website is so easy to use. Trust me, if I can do it anyone can! I sent them the measurements of my drawers and picked 3 different styles from their templates. But you can customize them any way you like!

The first thing I thought of was “wow” these would be great to organize all of my husband’s drawers.

We have lots of drawers in our master bath that we use as dresser drawers.  My husband travels a lot and I love making his life easier by organizing everything he needs for his business trips.

He has hundreds of ties and it was time to purge and donate some of them. He gets in a rut and wears the first ones he sees, which happens to be the same few over and over.

With this insert I can organize them by color, season, style, etc. All he has to do is grab the one he wants, which is already rolled up, and pack them in his dress shoes. Rolling helps with wrinkling and saves space in your suitcase.

The same goes with his socks. This divider holds 16 pairs of folded socks. Tommy John brand are my husband’s favorite.

And how’s this for organized undies? (sorry to our children if you’re reading, I’m showing dad’s skivvies) lol!

These are great for all of his accessories too.

I love the clear look of acrylic. It makes it easy to find what you’re looking for, and creates less visual clutter.

 

And just for fun, here are some other ideas of ways to use Organize My Drawer inserts.

In a baby’s room:

In a shared children’s dresser:

Before a jumbled mess of little his and little her undies…

After, with plenty of room to spare, and bonus, this is a great way to get your kids to roll and put away their own clothes! Make it easy for them to help you!

When Mama Goes Down

The flu season has been brutal this year. So has strep. Both of which I had this past week. Insert crying emoji here.

And call us old fashioned, but when Mama goes down, the whole house tilts a little, or a lot lol.

This is one of those times that having an organized home really pays off. 

Keeping all the meds in one place, neatly marked, helps everyone know where to go, and where to put back, the meds they need.

In my case, NyQuil Cold and Flu was the only way I could sleep. My sweet hubby knew exactly where to find it! Win win for us both!

I also have a separate container, labeled, just for the kids’ medicine. I like containers you cannot see through for meds, up high, safe out of little hand’s reach.

These white containers are fromTarget.

This is when having an organized and well stocked pantry comes in handy too.

Having food items on hand for quick meals helps everyone. I have a few things in my pantry and freezer that are always stocked up. Tuna and chicken from Costco make a quick and yummy sandwich.

In our house, chili and cornbread are always a favorite, so I always make sure to have everything on hand to make both. Hot, home made food makes everyone feel better.

I also buy turkey burger and chicken in bulk from Costco and cook it up the day I bring it home (with onions and garlic), then freeze in meal sized portions. You can make hundreds of dishes with it.

Spaghetti is another easy and quick fix that everyone likes.

And if all else fails, PB&J,  with chips and fruit wins the day!
