This is my “junk drawer”.
I actually have four “junk” drawers in my kitchen. These are handy, catch-all drawers for odds and ends. In this one, I have a pack of gum, candle, shoe polish, black shoelaces, batteries, flash light, re-usable bag, tape measure, lint brush, screwdrivers, scissors and tape.
Personal organizing expert, Elizabeth Larkin, has five easy steps to de-clutter your top drawers. Larkin’s tips include:
1. Keep what you need and purge what you don’t.
2. Sort and group similar items together.
3. Determine your storage needs.
4. Arrange your items.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 on a regular basis.
