neato-sneato drawer dividers--easy to install, inexpensive
over at Kitchens, there's a thread (go quick; who knows how long it'll last?) of self-installed drawer dividers worth seeing.
Here's the link w/ pics of dividers in action--note that the very closely spaced dividers are SHORTER than the other ones, which I bet makes it much easier to get stuff out--if those skinny compartments were full height, it would be hard to reach the bottom. But the skinniness is good, bcs it forces the utensils to rise UP instead of spread OUT (the NYer in me approves), thereby meaning you can fit more in. Thous, of course, they canÂt really rise much higher than the dividers, can they? Hmmm.
And here is the link for the dividers themselves: "These plated steel barbed channels make it easy to divide drawer interiors. Just knock into place and slide in a 1/4" wood or glass divider. Each channel is 2-1/2" long.
Sold in packages of 10, enough for five partitions."
$3.30 per pack; if your order 10 packs or more, the price drops to $2.80.
You could use the 2.5" channels to hold taller dividers, or stack two channels for an extra-tall divider.
Also on that thread are remarks about the handy precut wood strips or sheets found in hobby stores, which would be a great way to get the dividers themselves. (you might find it easier to cut them with a razor saw, also sold in hobby shops)
