Making Monday a little more organized

So does anyone else get frustrated with trying to organize little socks, pajamas, and panties? When I'm doing good and I get the laundry done and folded and put away before it gets used out of the basket I try to neatly organize the drawer. Only after 2 or 3 days of the drawer being opened and closed and things pulled out it all shifts around into one big pile. Let's face it, can you actually ever get those little socks organized in the first place?
So here is my solution: Kids shoe boxes
Of course, I kind of wanted to make them look a little prettier. So what did I do? I took some of my scrapbook paper from my mega 180 sheet package that I bought at Hobby Lobby on their 50% off sale. (love those!) Then I Modge Podged it to the box. I wanted the paper to be tidy on the box so I actually cut and folded the paper to fit the box before I started the modge podge process. I basically used the box to eyeball the size of the paper I needed and how I needed to fold it. No rulers and exact measurements here.
Pretty cute for holding socks, huh.

Much tidier. Now the clothes won't slide around when the drawer is opened and closed and become on big ball of cloth.
I only have one done for now. Princess #1 had one of the boxes decorated with paint and My Little Pony stickers so I left that one for now, besides it's in a drawer anyway.
Now I'm over to Twice Remembered to see what everyone else did for the Make Your Monday party.


  1. I'm a big fan of dividing drawers to keep things organized. Your little polka dot covered box will make you smile whenever you put away the laundry!

  2. This is so clever, Amanda! Not only organized but very pretty as well! This is a neat idea!

  3. I've just recovered a shoes box (for my make-up)
    Yours is nicer thought.

  4. Amanda! Hello and thanks for checking out our blog, Junk-Fest! Regarding the moss roll, just email Lori Miller on her site and she will be more than happy to mail one out to you, I'm quite certain of it. She is very acommodating! Tell her I sent you!

    Let me know if it works for you, okay? Happy Junkin'!

  5. Now that's one good idea! I love your lil name you gave our cottage..too sweet!
