Adjustable drawer dividers from Storage Box. Not as pretty as the fabric boxes with fixed fabric dividers, but being adjustable they are way more adaptable. They would go well in smaller kitchen or bathroom drawers.

Italio insert cube from The Warehouse. An affordable, simple little container that fits into most cubby furniture. I could churlishly wish it had straight sides, and a few more colour options, but nobody's perfect.

Bijou metal filigree box from Briscoes. Pretty enough to keep on your dresser for cosmetics and toiletries. Use smaller containers inside it to keep items separate and upright.

5-compartment storage box. I'm not usually a fan of containers with fixed compartments. They always seem to be not quite the right size or shape. But if you have many small items that you want to store in categories. I keep batteries and 3M hooks (I have many!) in boxes like this.

These containers are life-changing! Well, they were for me. The perfect balance between just jamming everything into a drawer, and folding it tidily. Everything stored together, but separate. Neat, but messy if you want. I love it.   There are lots of styles available. This bamboo underwear organiser comes from Storage Box, but you'll find similar items in Briscoes, Bed Bath & Beyond, The Warehouse, or any $2 shop.
