{Get Organized} Organizing the Junk Drawer-Dollar Store Style

This drawer was the 'baddest of the bad', worst of the worst, eyesore in my kitchen. 
 Every time we opened it, things would fall out or something would get stuck.  There were too many things stuffed into too small of a space.
 Things had to get worse before they got better.  I took everything out of the drawer.
 Dusted and vacuumed it out.
Then came the fun part!  I played around with the organizers that I had found at Dollar Tree, seeing which was the best combination.  I also went through everything that had been in the drawers, deciding what to keep, toss, relocate or donate.
The finished drawer!!  Now all of our batteries are organized and in one place.  Taking them out of their packaging was a game changer.  I tossed out all of our take out menus because we can go on line for the menus now.  There's a full size mag flashlight on the left (hard to see).  Everything is at our fingertips.
Every time I open this drawer, I swoon. Seriously! I'm moving on to other drawers in the house now. Nothing is safe from my organizing mojo!  Have you organized anything lately?
Let's keep in touch!

Love this!
I only have 2 drawers in my kitchen - double wide essentially one is forks/knives, etc - the other is the random kitchen gear - I try to keep it neat, but another drawer would help!

I love how neat and organized the draw looks Heather! :) The dollar stores are great for finding cheap organizers! :)

I NEEd to do this! I have the same type of junk drawer and it just needs some organization! I hope I can find some similar organizers! What a difference!

I had a gift card to Target and I bought clear bins to organize my bathroom cabinet. I love opening the doors and looking in there now. However, now you've got me thinking of some long bins for one of our million junk drawers. My batteries deserve this.

I couldn't help but laugh girl because that is exactly how mine will look at times in my kitchen! I have two drawers that is my catch all drawers and if I do not stay on top it somehow I manage to let them look just like your picture! LOL! I love the little bins like you have. I need to re-do mine now!!!! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

You go girl! It's so satisfying to come back to a newly organized space!! Whenever I get a junk area cleaned up I'll forget that I did it and walk in and it's a pleasant surprise to see it all cleaned up!! Haha.
I love you rearrange and how everything is grouped together by type. That makes it so much easier to find what you need.
