Organizational Drawer Dividers

These slide-in dividers — pretty as they are practical — help to neatly store your everyday items. They can be made to fit virtually any size of container. And when lined in soft lace-trimmed fabric, they cushion fragile pieces and prevent snags on accessories such as socks, linens, and undergarments.
