Spring Cleaning Challenge Day 3: Empty That Junk Drawer

Welcome to Day 3 of the Spring Cleaning Challenge!

We all have one - a mystery drawer filled with odds and ends that haven't really been seen since 1992. Now's the time to get to the bottom of it, literally, by cleaning it out and organizing what remains.

  • Dump everything - yes, everything! - onto your table or counter.
  • Throw away any garbage such as dried up pens, leaky batteries, etc.
  • Sort out things that belong somewhere else like loose screws, office supplies, etc.
  • Put what's left back into the drawer in an organizing tray to keep things sorted and contained.

Where do you secretly stash assorted stuff?
Do you have an overflowing junk drawer?
Is your junk drawer in your kitchen or elsewhere?

I can't the only things in my junk drawer are extra number stickers (like the ones that go on mailboxes), chargers for the power wheels vehicles, and a crazy amount of screwdrivers (but never the ONE I need...lol).

I so need to do this. It's actually starting to over flow into the cupboard below it.

Junk drawer is currently in kitchen. It's funny that this challenge came up today because I just cleaned ours out a few days ago. :)
