Gah. Do you have one? A drawer that raises your blood pressure every time you open it? Our junk drawer was out of control! I could never find anything in it even though it was filled with all the things.
And clearly, by sharing this, I have no shame. It was a struggle to even shut the drawer most of the time.
See what I mean?
January always makes me want to organize everything in sight. I have to get as much done as possible before the mood wears off.
I highly recommend having a sweet helper to entertain you during the project!
The first thing I like to do in any organization project is make things 100 times worse by dragging everything out. Then there’s no turning back! I completely emptied the drawer to start fresh (and destroyed my kitchen).
Once I had a clean space, I added several drawer containers that I found as a set at Sam’s Club.
This set cost less than $20 and I still have three containers left for another project. I also used a small office supply holder and little basket that I already in the drawer.
My goals for this drawer were to hold office supplies and the essentials for paying bills and corral all the other random kitchen stuff I need…spare keys, birthday candles, memory cards, Chapstick, batteries…you get the idea.
I love this organized version of the junk drawer! And no more crazy blood pressure spikes when I look for an ink pen! I’m going to do my best to keep it this way.
