This week I took on the junk drawer in the kitchen. I had a little help with this from Kenzie. She had a day off from school due to a burst pipe. Unfortunately there is more than one junk drawer in the kitchen. Now at least there is one less!
I have a bad habit of just stuffing things in drawers when I want to get the clutter off the counters and our kitchen has lots of counter space and lots of drawers which has led to, as I mentioned, several junk drawers. For the main junk drawer. I had purchased several little plastic containers to organize stuff and it helps some, but again, to really solve the problem I need to stop just sweeping stuff into the drawers.
So Kenzie and I sorted all kinds of little stuff, from spare change to pushpins to earrings and toys and found homes for it all. Now you can easily open and close the drawer and find whatever it is that you may be looking for.
