We have 2 drawers in our home that seem to get messy more frequently than all of the other organized spaces in our home.
The kitchen junk drawer and my desk drawer.
Jen from iHeartOrganizing issued a mini challenge recently to organize 4 drawers in 4 days. I didn't have 4 drawers that needed to be tackled right now, but this was the perfect time to get these 2 drawers checked off of my list.
It looks so much better and you can easily tell where things go now. It's hard to tell, but the drawer was already lined with the blue and white quatrefoil paper. It was a TjMaxx find several years ago.
I made the places more defined this time and didn't leave any empty bins begging to be filled with random stuff.
I feel like this is the best the drawer has been so far. It's like everything else in our home. I am constantly tweaking and improving our systems.
Since I added the new dry erase boards in the dining room, the dry erase marks got moved from my desk drawer to the kitchen drawer.
I finally feel like there aren't any unnecessary items in my desk. I use the zipper pouch for pens and stickers when I need to pack up my planner for on the go. The notepads are used when I am making our meal plans for the week. I usually scribble out several things before I get it all finalized and transferred to my planner. Everything else is just basic office supplies.
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I organized these 2 drawers in our home.
The complete tour is on my YouTube Channel.
