HAHAHA I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M ACTUALLY WRITING THIS "DIY" POST.
It's more like DIY for lazy people like me. Oh well. Let's get started!
Look at how tidy I am...
If you've been reading my blog, you'll know I'm an absolute hoarder who just can't stop buying things. (Don't blame me, blame the shopaholic in me.) Usually after I go out and spend money buying unnecessary clothes or whatnot, I end up dumping my goodies on my shelf - or even worse, on the floor. So after a while, the floor becomes cluttered, the shelf becomes cluttered and then more things fall onto the ground. Oh and then my mum kills me. Great.
But after a while of packages flooding in one by one, I came up with a cheap and affordable solution:
|These boxes were only 95 cents each!|
Cardboard box drawers.
Yes, that's right, I'm that cheap. Just kidding hehe. What really happened was that I had gotten quite a lot of parcels coming in - and had all this packaging piling up in the corner. I had bubble wrap, I had postage bags, I had envelopes etc. I had a lot of little boxes sitting around my room randomly but being the hoarder I am, I didn't want to throw them away! So I kept them around for a little while, patiently waiting for a day to use them. (I didn't want to throw them away since they were perfect and undented and it would've been a waste.)
So a few weeks later, after collecting a bit of dust, I made these
crappy unique, little drawers with labels on them. How original.
But because they were so cheap and easy to make and cheap, I didn't mind how crappy they looked. I kept promising myself, I'll wrap them in some nice airy fairy wrapping paper but that never really happened. Luckily for that because today, I finally decided to replace them after a moment of DIY inspiration.
REPLACE THEM WITH MORE CARDBOARD BOXES HAHAHA.
|It was pretty hard stacking these, okay?|
I made 10 little storage boxes in less than half an hour, including all the time I wasted taking photos and stacking them up and doing all nonsense with them hehe. So yeah! Super quick.

I know they're definitely not pretty or unique or anything at all, but I like how simple they are hehe. *Cough excuses* But yeah, if you don't like the plain-ness of them, you can easily customise how they look yourself - I'm already thinking of adding some washi tape or lace tape hehe!
Also, they actually fit my shelves which is fab since I already tried and failed at finding proper drawers for them hehe. Apparently no one makes random drawers to fit into random shelves which sucks because I want shelves with drawers and not drawers if that makes sense. It doesn't really but oh well...
|Don't you think this is cute? This is from Chalkd hehe.|
Oh and I'm also thinking of of getting some chalkboard stickers to stick on each box! That way I know what's inside it straightaway hehe. It'll make things easier to find I guess. Oh and hopefully it'll make these 95 cent drawers look a lot better HAHA.
When I finally get around to customising these babies, I'll let you guys have a look hehe. Washi tape, chalkboard stickers, here I come!
Lots of Love,
