You know we always hear “Everything has its Place.” It really does. Take a cluttered junk drawer filled with all kinds of mess. Often there are keys, batteries, receipts, tools, money, pens, gift cards, coupons, pencils, candy, stamps, unpaid bills, medicine, and restaurant menus having a conversation. You get the point. This happens when there is no designated area or system for these items. When we search for something and can’t find it, it affects our behavior and emotions. Yes, unfortunately here comes the yelling at the kids or running late for work because we can’t find the keys.
That is why drawer organizers are a great, efficient, and simple way to transform your space so everything has a proper spot. The goal is to find items when we need them. Imagine grabbing your keys and walking out the door on time for work. What a great feeling.
Here’s how to get started (once you’ve taken measurements and purchased your drawer organizers).
• Empty the cluttered drawer.
• Sort like items together — decide what you’ll keep and discard the rest.
• Take a look…no more clutter. Now grab those keys and go to work.
