Our Cimple Drawer Divider

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…


  1. That is so cool, Bethany! I am going to have to access my need for such items. When anything involves organization and holding things in their proper place it does make my heart skip a beat, in a good way. I tried to solve the problem in the drawers with these cloth boxes from IKEA, they work ok but this is much more practical as you can conform it to your specific needs. Good for you guys for building a better mousetrap, er drawer divider!

    Thanks, Jonesey. I’m the same way about organizing products. I’m such a messy by nature, but how I love for things to be neat and tidy. I need for things to have a super-easy, no-brainer, totally obvious “home.” Otherwise, I’ve got a mess.
