Organize Your Junk Drawer

Hey ya'll! If you know me I looovvvvve to de-clutter. I am obsessed and sometimes Coby even thinks I am going to throw him out too! This brings me the the infamous junk draw. We all have that pesky junk draw that magically refills itself within seconds.  I have found a budget-friendly way to organize that pesky junk drawer.  Instead of heading to the store and spending money on organizers, take a look around your home first. Do you have any old egg cartons waiting to be recycled? Small jars, bowls, or lid-less Tupperware waiting to be used? Gather up those items and get ready to turn your drawer from chaos to coordination.

The first thing you’ll need to do after grabbing your tools is pulling everything out of your drawer. Once you have your items laid out, create a toss/donate pile so you can get rid of items you no longer use. Then, strategically place the organizing items you’ve collected in your empty drawer. Try to fill the drawer so there won’t be any shifting when the drawer opens and closes.

Now you’ve got separation spaces to place what you had in the drawer! Put batteries in one jar, pens in another container, and so on. When you open your drawer, there will be a designated space for each item, so now you won’t need to dig through old sauce packets to find a paperclip! While it may seem like a small accomplishment, starting small can create the catalyst that makes you want to organize the rest of your home!

Happy De-cluttering :)
