So, here it is. Our Cimple (pronounced “simple”) drawer divider that is now available on Amazon. I had been eying a similar product, a spring-loaded drawer divider, wondering how we could make something similar sans spring.
I mentioned it to Marathon, and after a month or 2 he had some ideas. He started experimenting, and the Cimple expandable divider was born.
We’ve since come up a use for it that we didn’t initially have in mind. It’s to use the Cimple as a shelf divider. I organized our bathroom closet about 5 weeks ago. It has NEVER looked so tidy for so long. I haven’t had to spruce it up a bit since – not once. Do I sound like a commercial? 😉 Here are before and after picture. See what I mean?
I haven’t organized our school books for the next school year yet (I need to do this soon!), but I’ll be using Cimples as shelf dividers to organize them: this section for Carman, this one for Sudoku, one for Doodle, one for me that will include our read-alouds, one for library books, etc.
The drawer dividers work nicely in drawers too. 🙂 We’re currently making them in 3″ and 6″ high versions.

The Amazon selling, like all things, has a learning curve, and we’ve had some unexpected bumps in the road. More on that another time…
