Everyone has one. Everyone hates it. Everyone despises its clutterfulness. I am talking about the junk drawer. I simply couldn’t handle mine anymore. We had tools, batteries, wax (yes WAX), writing utensils, nail clippers, and some spare change. I needed some organization in my life. I needed junk drawer domination!

The back story – I had already cleaned these 3 drawers out twice! I was tired of things being sloshed around trying to find the scissors. I had to do something before I lost my mind or hurt someone.

So, I ran down to our local dollar store and picked up 2 utensil trays. I pulled EVERYTHING out of the drawer, thank goodness for a large island! I then proceeded to put stuff away that never belonged in that drawer to begin with (um hello socks?!) Then I organized items neatly in their little compartments. We all started singing the Hallelujah chorus when everything had a place and everything was in its place. And it has stayed there since then.

The PIT, bottomless junk pit!

It is absolutely amazing to me how a simple act of organization and labeling can keep the junk drawer at bay.

So if you are tired of your junk drawer being so messy, go grab some utensil trays and get to the junk drawer domination!
