Rubbermaid Drawer Organizers

Organizing my own personal chaos is about managing life as a mother and also trying to tackle the household duties as well. There are plenty of rooms, closets, and drawers in your home, that need attention and tidying on a routine basis, which might require Rubbermaid Drawer Organizers.

And whether you are a Mom, Dad, Grandparent or College Student, we all seem to have one common area that is always in total chaos – The Junk Drawer! Mine is right in the hub of my house, where there is the most action. And that is exactly where most people dump those stray items. As you can see from my below ‘before’ picture, I took the first steps in organizing my Junk Drawer by getting little baskets for the pens. Yet everything else is a total mess. Rubbermaid has a six-piece drawer organizer set, which comes with different sized compartments meant to tidy and organize your junk belongings.

Just released into stores in February, these interlocking drawers come in a variety of sizes and shapes, to suit any sized drawer {and many sizes of items too}. The beauty of these is that they stay together, both with the interlocking feature and also their foot grips which prevent drawer slidage. Yes, I just named it ‘drawer slidage’ and that just annoys me because it adds to the mess! I like the black color of these, as they will match any décor. The insides of the compartments have a tan colored gripper too, allowing items inside to slide about. Again, preventing that annoying slidage! As you can see from my picture, I do have wooden separators already in my drawer. I was pretty excited to see that our drawer had that. Yet I soon realized that those separators wasn’t enough, it just made a ‘Mess A’, ‘Mess B’ and so forth. I needed to group the items contained in the drawer more efficiently and the Rubbermaid Drawer Organizers did the trick. Neat and tidy! Why just the small ‘after’ picture of my drawer? Surprisingly, I was able to fit everything but 2 stacks of papers and notepads, into what you see here. My drawer is pretty much bare! {for now anyway}…

Rubbermaid has
3 key tips to having a functional Junk Drawer.

1) Don’t just toss any item in there, in any place. Have a designated spot for keys, batteries, lists, change etc. This is a great habit to form, then it stays neater for longer and makes finding things easier
2) Don’t toss items in there that do belong somewhere else. Take a little extra time to rightfully put things in their place. If it belongs in the junk drawer, go ahead.
3) Clean out the junk drawer every once in a while. You’ll be surprised at what you find {or think you have lost}!

  1. If you’ve see the recent Wordless Wednesday post on my blog then you know my chaos is the toy room! What from Rubbermaid, besides everything, would help me? The Clever Store Clear totes! I would love to have my Dad build a custom 2×5 cubby (meaning 2 tote high and 5 wide) and store all the toys that way sadly my house is much to small for such a thing! But a few totes to toss the toys in would be great. I use a few smaller clear Rubbermaid’s right now for playfood and cars but the bigger ones would be great for the bigger toys! It would get them OFF the floor!

  2. My spare room…there is xmas stuff piled on the bed, clothes that no longer fit my daughter on the dresser. It’s a disaster in there. I would love to have the nestable bins so we could at least minimize the closet clutter in that room so we can have more space to put the xmas decorations and some bins.

  3. The room that is most chaotic in my house is the kitchen. I think the best Rubbermaid item that would work in my room would be Modular Canisters to fix my problems with my walnuts, chocolate chips, and spices

  4. We sure could use the Full Double Door Cabinet in our garage! It’s getting more & more messy each time I pull into it. This would help me better organize the garage.

  5. My pantry in the kitchen is the worst! I could use the Modular Canisters to help with all of the cereal, snacks, pasta, and cookies that are everywhere in there!

  6. the drawer organizer would be wonderful. My drawers become so full of disorganized stuff that every couple of years, I dump everything out and start anew. I dump in to a plastic bag and I put the bag in the closet and check the bags after a year. It’s surprising how much stuff in that bag is not missed.

  7. our kitchen Island is chaos. It collects everything. It is not functional at all. We used to put everything that we didn’t want our child to reach, but now he is able to reach, so we are in trouble!
    I follow on facebook.

  8. My most chaotic room is the dining room because that is where all the books, papers and whatever we may be working on, piles up. I think some of the storage boxes might keep things out of sight between projects.

  9. Please delete above comment, I forgot to add something

    All the room are chaotic, but I would pick the kitchen. What would definitely help is the Expanding Helper Shelves. I had no idea these existed

    formycontests@gmail.com

  10. Its not a specific room that is chaotic in my house its everyones closet in their rooms. That is why I would choose the Classic Configurations Closet Kits to help me orgainize each one.

  11. Our garage needs an overhaul and the Rubbermaid Quick Select: Fast Track® Garage Organization System would do the trick. We need rails, hooks, a golf bag rack, some shelves – the whole thing!

  12. My kitchen is the most chaotic – I started out with ONE junk drawer, and now they’ve multiplied, and I have THREE, so I could really use the drawer organizer!

  13. The modular canisters would help me greatly. My kitchen pantry is a mess! All the snack foods are crammed in with chip clips holding them closed!

  16. I have the Queen of all Junk Drawers in my kitchen (I actually have 3 of them) This would save me from searching through wads of paper, staples, push pins, pens etc.

  18. I’m going with our bedroom closet. Clothes aren’t stored in it, just stuff. LOTS of stuff. It could explode at any minute.

  20. My most chaotic room is the kitchen/dining room/computer room… total chaos!!

  21. Oh and this goes with my first comment… I’d love the 6pce drawer organizer for my “junk” drawer!!!

  22. Oh, my bedroom is the most cluttered! I could figure out uses for all of Rubbermaid’s products, but the 6 compartment drawer one would work great in my daughter’s bureau to separate her hair items like little clips, bands, ribbons, etc.

  23. Well I could certainly use the drawer organizers in my kitchen junk drawer but besides that, I would love to revamp my pantry with rubbermaid modular canisters, stackable canisters and any other canister, haha.

  28. My Laundry room is def. tohe most chaotic in the house because I’m the only one who ever uses it (Besides throwing clothes on the floor of course!) and it’s tucked upstairs in the back where I can get away with a little mess! I think the Classic Configurations Closet Organizer could really help me out on this one!

  29. A Full Double Door Cabinet would work wonders for the mess on the back porch. Balls (sports type), volley ball net, dog food, mud encrusted football cleats in sizes spanning the last 6 years, etc…

  30. My garage is a disaster. I don’t think one more item could even fit in it. I could really use the Corner Tool Tower from Rubbermaid.

  31. My kitchen is the most disorganized and I need HELP! I like the Interlocking Mesh Drawer Organizers and they would work wonders for my kitchen drawers.

  32. My kitchen is one of the most chaotic places in my house. I’d love the Modular Canisters to organize one cupboard in particularly (the one that houses the nuts, raisins etc). Currently we have containers of various sizes, jars etc all mishmashed in the cupboard. Thanks for the giveaway.
