Day #1 Getting Organized Challenge: Organizing the "junk" drawer

Today’s challenge over at A Bowl Full of Lemons was to organize your junk drawer.  And boy oh boy did ours need some help.  A lot of it was stuff that got stuck in there last night before our NYE party, but it was not looking good before that either.  Here’s what I started with:


When I emptied it out onto a box lid, I found all kinds of stuff, including but not limited to candy canes, the favors from my cousin’s baby shower, a whole slew of fire-starting materials, and, well, the picture speaks for itself.  Only ended getting rid of a few things but there was quite a bit of stuff that went to its rightful home.  While the junk drawer has a non-discrimination policy, I do not.  If you don’t live there, go home.  Here’s what I ended up with:


Not too shabby, eh?  I also added some stuff, but that’s okay I think.  Everything has a place and fits in the drawer, so I’m good with it.  Now we’ll just have to see how long Boyfriend and I can keep it up.
