Default Dividing Drawers and Organizing Contents

My scrapbook desk has 3 nice drawers on it; but I need a better way to divide and organize what is in them. One drawer is all adhesives, the other is assorted stamping/inking and the last is "whatever". I have different small baskets and such inside the drawers to keep things organized; but I think there should be a better way to take advantage of the space.

Thanks for your suggestions and photos if you have them.

You can always get some foam board and make a grid to divide your drawers into compartments.

Here's what I made for my Copic storage solution, but there's no reason you couldn't make a divider grid for any drawer.

Just a thought- I went to IKEA yesterday( bedroom furniture), and came away with loads of the little fabric boxes they have for drawer division. The do them in a range of sizes, square, oblong, some have their own dividers inside- all sorts. They also have some really cool plastic trays, which are intended for use in bathrooms, a bit like cutlery trays- I got some for my work room, and some for my make-up. Actual cutlery trays is another thing I use in drawers.I won't tell you all the other things I came away with, most having nothing to do with bedroom furniture, lol.

I use my unwanted scrapbook paper (the back white side), scoring board, and ATG tape to make drawer dividers that suit the contents. For instance, I have stamp pads and re-inkers in the same drawer; so the two get differently measured dividers. What I like about this is.....it's CHEAP and versatile. If contents change, I can just make some new dividers and chuck the old ones. The horizontal bottom is a single layer, and each vertical divider is a double layer taped together.
