  • The plastic organizer things that you can buy at the store are a lifesaver. That way everything has a place and it makes things less cluttered. As for what goes in, that's going to change with your storage space and family's needs.

  • Iv got one. It's an organized mess. The hubby thinks it's all junk, but it's stuff I use. I put hair ties around coupons and recipes I clip out. Keep samples of shampoo and lotion's the same way. I use ramekin cups for odd's and end's and screws and such.

  • I use small disposable clear containers. I can move the stuff easily if need be.

  • Its like a silverware divider but it has more cubbies. You just slide it into the drawer. My junk drawer has : batteries, tape, pens, rubber bands, measuring tape, tacks, and post - its.
