OK-- I'm back ranting and raving about baskets.... but, they REALLY do work VERY well... for just about anything and just about anywhere!
As you can see in this photo, I keep a bathroom drawer (that could be a potential disaster area) very neat and tidy by using two metal "baskets."
These baskets, I think, were designed for office supplies, but they work just perfectly for keeping cotton balls, swabs, lip gloss, nail clippers and other odds n' ends in order!
After lining the drawer with rubber, non-slip drawer liners (appropriately named, eh?), I simply stuck the two metal things on the right-hand side of the drawer and filled them up with smaller items. Then I utilized the space around the baskets to neatly store other items that were too big.
Now, THAT's neat!
