Whether you're reorganizing your wardrobe or feng shui-ing your living room layout, after nearly a year in quarantine, a limited number of projects lift our spirits more than organizing our homes.
Managing our spaces – how they look and feel – renders a sense of relief, something many of us so desperately need. And if you're searching for an illustration on how, take Drew Barrymore's lead.

A staple such as that is nothing short of an essential – a way to tuck away odds and ends, without disrupting your current aesthetic (and no one will guess your secret).
