When my Kleenex boxes are empty, I cut the tops off and use the bottom part as dividers in my dresser drawers and cabinets. The new Kleenex or Scotty boxes are usually flowered and pretty enough to use. I store socks, panties, bras, scarves, hose, etc. in them. This is very handy and keeps things organized. I also put some boxes in the top of my closet to sort out hats, gloves, scarves.
I've found that since my husband is an avid golfer, we have an abundance of golf ball boxes, which make perfect drawer organizers. The boxes from Titlist, Pentach, and Calloway are reinforced and just the right size. They will fit into shallow drawers, but also are the right height (2 in.) and reinforced. This makes them perfect for organizing tall items, and keeps them from falling over when you shut or open the drawer.
I had used the last Q-tip and was separating the plastic from the cardboard for recycling when I realized the clear plastic box would make a great drawer organizer. I have some store bought trays but the Q-tip box is much bigger and since they are clear, they don't seem to make the drawer "shrink". I use them in bathroom drawers for small bottles and in my dresser drawers for hankies and hose and in the "junk drawer".
I found a great use for cardboard from pop cases or 12 packs, I use it to make dividers for my drawers, such as my "junk" drawer. I open the box so I can lay it flat, then I cut strips for the length I want, then I cut slits about 1/2 way down where I want to section it off, and insert another strip making "pockets" to put things. If it I need to adjust it no problem, it doesn't cost me anything to make a new one.

Ever had problems when storing boxes of foil, plastic, and waxpaper boxes in kitchen drawers. Stop these problems by placing the opened boxes top side down. This prevents the tops from opening after you close the drawer.
