A photograph of two of the organizers was submitted. The organizers consist of open boxlike rectangular containers with decoratively curved front end panels. They are constructed of thick laminated bamboo. The sizes of the containers are 3” x 6” x 2”, 3” x 9” x 2”, 3” x 12” x 2”, 6” x 6” x 2”, 6” x 9” x 2”, 6” x 12” x 2” and 6” x 15” x 2”. The containers may be used inside a drawer or on top of a dresser or table to hold and organize various articles.
