I’m coming clean: I have a dirty little secret. My counters and tabletops might look pretty tidy, but what lurks beneath is my secret shame. That’s right, folks — I’m talking junk drawers. It’s a sickness, and this year I’m tackling my drawers of shame one by one. Up first, my vanity. I love fun makeup and jewelry as much as the next girl, but I can’t even see to the bottom of these drawers (you’ll see…). Luckily, we’ve come up with some super simple and inexpensive ideas to trick out even the most disastrous drawers.

If you can’t find a clean cotton swab among the makeup compacts and piles of nail polish bottles, look no further. If you hoard hair accessories, we’ve got you covered there, too. Watch the video for easy DIY solutions to keep everyday items organized and within reach.
