Here's an angle to give you a feel of how narrow it is. Things can get cluttered pretty fast. Yesterday, I went through my drawers. They house embellishments & scraps of paper by theme. I have general themes like: Girl, boy, baby, ocean, Summer, Spring, Fall etc. I have found that that's what works best for me. When I am working on a project I pull out the entire drawer, that way I can go through everything easily.
