Tiny Change #4 : Organize
your junk drawer
You know your scissors are here somewhere. They are
just difficult to find in the jumble of old batteries, electrical
thing-a-ma-jigs, receipts, and other junk. We waste a lot of time
looking through our junk drawers. It's time to take that time back-let's
organize that junk drawer! Trust me, it will take less minutes than
1. Measure your drawer so you know what size drawer
organizer will fit.
2. Buy a drawer organizer.This
is my junk drawer organizer. I love it! I can find things so fast
because of the labeled compartments. Here are a few
more if you have a different size drawer.
3. Once you get your organizer, dump out everything
from your junk drawer onto a table.
4. Wash out the drawer, so it will be dry by the
time you put things back into it.
5. Now it's time to sort. Put all your rubber
bands in a pile, then scissors, pencils, gadgets, etc. If you
get an organizer with labels you can use those label names for
sorting piles. Pitch anything that looks broken or things you
no longer need. Be ruthless. You don't need that junk!
6. Place your drawer organizer into your drawer.
7. Put each pile into its section of the drawer
organizer. If you have a pile without a labeled compartment, you
can swap it with a compartment you don't need. Since I have young
kids I don't put matches in that compartment. I re-labeled it
8. Close up your drawer, wash off the table and
drink a cup of hot cocoa. You did great!
is junk stealing from your life?
