I really don’t like dealing with the boxes from the aluminum foil and plastic wrap containers so I decided to build my own DIY drawer organizer to hold the tubes. This will save drawer space because I won’t need to store the boxes as well.
Keep in mind that you need a fairly wide drawer to use this. My organizer is 15.5″ wide and my drawer is just slightly bigger than that so it’s a perfect fit. You might be able to make one for a slightly less wide drawer but the drawer needs to be wide enough to fit your kitchen wrap across the width of the drawer.
Supplies for this Project

DIY Drawer Organizer for the Kitchen Wrap
Now you can take your other piece of wood to screw into the back/front of the divider.
Once you’re finished with this, you can sand all of the rough edges and around the holes. Wipe the dust off, then you can paint it. I used a good Paint + Primer spray paint and did a couple of coats (thanks to trying to spray paint it in the dark and missing spots).
