We all have at least one drawer in our house that has turned into what can be called a junk drawer. It has no real purpose other than being a hodge podge of items that don’t have any where else to go. The best way to attack a junk drawer is by following these easy steps:
- Dump it. The junk drawer is in constant disarray so you have to start with a drastic measure. Simply dump the drawer out onto a flat surface and start going through the miscellaneous debris.
- Pitch it. There is bound to be a ton of stuff in there that serves no purpose for you. Go ahead and trash it.
- Sort it. Start to separate everything into categories. Office supplies, tools, batteries, pens and pencils, old bills, and old receipts (most likely these need to be thrown away too.)
- Divide it. Buy or build your own drawer divider and keep each pile of stuff separated into its own section.
Now that wasn’t too difficult was it? Now make sure to keep the drawer in a orderly fashion and don’t just throw random items into it.
