Everything at a glance. Here, office supplies are organized so that each item can be retrieved without lifting anything else; one-touch retrieval is an absolute necessity for a system that lasts and works smoothly. This is one example of an office supply drawer I had at one time in an antique bureau. You can see the twist-ties, elastics, and pins share a containment area because they all hold things together. Little objects are stored int he front for easy access while bigger items that are easier to grab are stored in the back. As you can see everything can be seen by simply opening the drawer. There is no need to paw around to expose what else might be under something. Little separators can be made with any repurposed box already in the home so that new ones are not necessary to buy to get organized. The commercial forces that be would love you to go out and buy a container to add to your set-up but they are not necessary all the time and certainly don’t make the system. Staying organized is less about buying containers and instead grouping items together that are used together making sure to keep them separated from other categories by a divider of any type or even just space that will define the difference. You can see a peak of the wallpaper I put to line the drawer for added decor.
