Make-Do Monday - jan 24 drawer organization

At Make-Do Mondays we discuss how we’re simplifying, downsizing, repurposing, buying used, and using what we’ve got.

It’s a carnival celebrating creative problem-solving, contentment, patience and ingenuity. To participate, share your own make-do solution in the comments or write up a Make-Do Mondays post at your blog, then return here to link via MckLinky. Enjoy others’ ideas by clicking on their link in the MckLinky list.


So this weeks post is a quick fix it all that my daughter put together to keep her make-up drawer neat and orderly.

She had a black binding that was empty and taped it down in her drawer and then put her eyeliner and lipliner pencils between the bands.  Easy Peasy fix!

I usually pull the plastic bindings off any hole punched booklets before I toss the paper.  (To recycle the paper you have to remove bindings, staples and plastics.)  
So here we had a binding that is quite expensive and is reusable if you have access to the binder machine that cuts the holes and attaches the binding.  

Our school district has an place that we can use to do die cuts, laminating and binding.  It is really a nice resource for our classrooms and teachers.

....Have a wonderful week of Making-Do....  
......See you soon......
