The Junk Drawer.
Yesterday we purged - setting a limit to use as a guideline. (Mine is tossing anything that I can replace for $5 or less. Your mileage may vary.)

Today, take a look at what's leftover.
You might decide that some of the stuff should live elsewhere. Maybe in the tool box. Maybe an office desk. If it makes sense someplace else, let it live there.

Now, what's left?
If you want an off the shelf solution, here are some options.

There are boxy models, that all fit together. And, there are some that you just keep building on depending on how much space you have.

Now, you sure don't HAVE to purchase ANYTHING. On Day 4 we talked about leftover food storage containers. Nows the time to re-use those.
You can certainly use them for storing crayons, or baseball cards, or even tea lite candles. But, you can also use them to make your own custom drawer dividers.

Keep in mind, you can also be creative with things like check book boxes, old eyeglass cases, empty jewelry boxes - the sky's the limit.

What works for your family will be different from mine and it might change along the way. But, as long as it works for you, score!

Stop back tomorrow.
Same bat time.
Same bat channel.
