Keeping your junk drawer organised

Just because it’s a junk drawer doesn’t mean it has to be disorganised!

Have a space for everything
Make this as general or as specific as you like.

Small stuff together, big things together, children’s things together, etc.

Use lots of dividers!
You can use an old cutlery tray, the bottoms of cereal boxes, etc.

Clear it out regularly
I like to put a bit of masking tape in the corner with the date when I last organised the drawer. This will also help if you have unidentified keys – you know if you’ve had them there for 6 months that you probably won’t use them ever again, so you can throw away.
This is what works for me.

How do you organise your junk drawer?

Cleaning out regularly has got to be a huge part of the work. Seems like letting time go by without some maintenance work results is a big fat MESS. :)

Thanks for sharing!

I really love the idea of putting the date in the corner so you know the last time you organized the drawer. Great tips!

I organized my junk drawer a while back and it is so much better. Now I actually know what is in there and where it is when I need it. I used some small baskets for most things and I have a few things, like rubberbands, in small baggies at the back of the drawer. I also have a battery organizer and tester in there with all the batteries. I love my junk drawer now.
