I did it! I organized the junk drawer!
And organizing the junk drawer in the kitchen along with organizing my garage shelves were my two little organizing goals for January!
This little project took no time and I when I was done I felt silly for putting up with my out-of-control junk drawer for so long…
I mean, seriously Robin???
TJ Max had a handy dandy drawer organizer…
After pulling everything out and only putting back what I actually use here in the kitchen, I realized I was simply throwing things in the junk drawer to avoid putting them away. Most of what was in there belonged upstairs in my project room!
I was on a roll so I tackled my other junk drawer…I know it’s ridiculous to have two!
This drawer is where I keep some camera stuff that I use all the time. (Battery charger, USB cable, camera remote) My emergency pair of reading glasses, (you know when all 15 other pairs are lost-which happens at least once a month) and a few other things that I like to have handy. I didn’t take any more “before” shots because they were making me nervous, but here it is after I cleaned it out!
(I’ve no idea what that key goes to but I was afraid to throw it away…do you have mystery keys?)
Having organized the first junk drawer and purged it of my note cards, I made a place for them in the table under the kitchen TV. Does this mean I have THREE junk drawers? Wow.
I need my note cards close by because I still like to send snail mail every once in a while, don’t you?
This whole process took just under an hour and no kidding, I feel so much better.
ps…I’m adding a little basket to the kitchen to catch all the things that I’ve been stashing in my junk drawer. My plan is to empty the basket every few days by actually putting things away- this way my junk drawer will only have to hold my pertinent junk! I’ll let you know how it goes 🙂
Organizing Goals – January
1- Organize Junk Drawers-DONE!
2- Organize Garage Shelves-WORKING ON IT!
Did you make organizing goals for January? If so, how are they going?
Also, tell me about your junk drawer. Am I the only one who rakes everything in a drawer as opposed to putting things away!!!?
