Desk-Drawer-Organizing Truth time. I have been feeling quite overwhelmed lately. I have several long to-do lists in multiple areas of work and life that it has almost left me paralyzed. Which leads to feeling more overwhelmed because I am getting nothing done. Does that ever happen to you? You have so much to do and then you get nothing done? So, I decided the best place to jump start myself is with desk organization – especially my desk drawer. Somehow, that helps, at least in my head. Desk-Organizing-Tips_edited-1 I found this set of pretty Lucite trays at Homegoods last week and loved the look. One is holding papers on my desk and the other will be used in my makeup drawer. After looking at them closely, I realized that it is almost like a contact paper lining on the bottom that gives the lace look. Pretty-Organizing-Trays So, I ordered this contact paper, this tray, and this one too for my bathroom drawer. I started by tracing out the outline of the tray and cutting it down to size. Decorating-a-Drawer-Organizer I went back in a second time and trimmed it down so that it laid in between the nubbies on the back side that keep it from slipping. Once cut to the right size, I simply unrolled it and attached it to the tray. Decorating-with-Contact-Paper The tray for my bathroom is adjustable in size so I only did the two underside sections. Make-up-Tray-Organizer It is such a simple detail that probably only I will see, but somehow, this is helping me feel better. This drawer was just filled with junk, half of which needed to be thrown away or put somewhere else. Now, what I do need is right at my fingertips. Lucite-Tray-Drawer-Organizer I am off to cross some things of the to-do list, including organizing my make-up drawer. I can not deny – it is a hot mess! Thanks so much for reading!
