No one likes to admit what their junk drawer looks like. I know I don’t! The only redeeming thing about this photo is that you can tell that at one time, it was organized. I did take time a few years (yes, YEARS) ago to clean it out and organize it with cute little baskets. But, time has wrecked it. And I’m getting annoyed with it. So I cleaned it!
I dumped out the contents all over my family room floor while Jack was napping. I put everything in need little organized piles, so I knew what I was dealing with.
Then Jack woke up. It made organizing a little challenging, but we managed to get it done with minimal stress.
Let’s take a look at what we found, shall we?
A million and one bag clips (I thought I didn’t have), some post–its and a contact case:
Some wipes from restaurants that my husband feels the need to save and some guitar picks. LOTS of guitar picks:
Someone gave me 30 packs of gum on my 30th birthday (almost 3 years ago) and, since I don’t chew gum often, I still have a LOT left. And pens, pens and MORE pens! I had no idea there were so many in this one drawer!!
But I’m happy to report that the drawer got organized, stuff got thrown away, other stuff got put away to their proper home, and Boozle didn’t choke on any of the many small bolts and screws.
Awwwww….I feel much better now.
(I hope you can tell a difference. I can certainly FEEL a difference!)
