Dresser Organizer

If your husband is anything like mine, he has a pile of stuff on his side of the dresser and elsewhere throughout the house. Since I've started to organize, I had found a box and was just putting all his stuff into the box. That wasn't working well. So I decided to make him a dresser organizer.
Any guesses as to what I used to make it? CEREAL BOXES! (And a few cake boxes.) As you can see it has several compartments. One to hold 8 1/2 x 11 inch papers and notebooks, one for holding cards, one for his small "toys" and other objects, one for business cards, one for CD's and small books, even a compartment for pencils and pens.
Every time I walk into our room now, it shocks me how clean his side of the dresser is. Now I've got to work on mine!

Tip of the Day
Clean small areas like dressers every morning or night. This will keep from to much clutter building up. Throw away anything that you know you will never use.


  1. Excellent job...the color is very nice. Now...what's your solution for getting the DH to put his dirty laundry in the hamper?!

  2. Just found your blog thru The Girl Creative. First off, I want to say how much I like the name of your blog. Secondly, I love the cereal box idea. I think I'll make one for my husband and oldest child. I am looking forward to watching your blog.

  3. Haven't figured the laundry thing out myself. If I find the solution you better believe I'd post it!!! Thanks for visiting.

  4. This is such a great idea! We featured it in our post tomorrow on organizing. We used your top photo, gave a short description, credited you by name, and provided a direct link back to this page. We hope that's okay but if you prefer we remove it let us know. Thank you in advance for sharing with our readers.

  5. I just found you through ABC and 123's blog and I am so excited! Organization is one of my favorite things, it's also one of the things I struggle with most. Is there any chance you could show a small tutorial about how you made this cute organizer? It looks awesome!
