Product Review: Custom Drawer Dividers

These drawer dividers are a great alternative when traditional drawer organizers do not work.  In working on a desk organizing project with a client, we discovered that the pre-made drawer organizers in stores were either too big or too small.  We wanted to be able to take advantage of as much space as we could.  These custom dividers turned out to be our best option.

The dividers come in long strips and are intended to be scored and cut to size.  Additionally, they come in a few different heights to best accommodate drawer heights.  I was amazed how cleanly the product snapped after scoring it with a razor.  After the strip was cut to size we used the mounts included with the product to hold the dividers in place.  The mounts are self-adhesive, however we opted not to use the adhesive and instead have the tension hold them in place.  The adhesive is a nice option should tension not cut it after a while.  

My client used these dividers to separate office supplies in narrow drawers: pencils, pens, highlighters, Post-its, and other small office supplies.  The clean and orderly appearance of the drawer is not only aesthetically pleasing, but encourages her to put items back where they belong.

I would recommend this product for office supplies.  It can be used in kitchen drawers too.  I have heard from others who have used the product that the dividers can become loose if they are being used to separate large volumes of items that are heavy.  For small items such as pens and pencils, this is not as much of a concern.  I love the custom nature of the product and would use it again.
