1. Empty It
Put some newspaper on a bench or table, tip everything out of the junk drawer and spread it out. Remove rubbish, or anything you no longer need e.g pens that don't work, old receipts etc and give the drawer a quick clean.
2. Sort It
Go through the contents and return items to their rightful homes (bathroom, kids, garage, bedroom) and then sort the remainder into categories.
3. Organise It
The last step is to organise the drawer - find or make an organising tray to keep things in order. For smaller items, you can use ice trays or little containers (takeaway containers are great) to store things in.
It is important to keep on top of your junk drawer, by doing regular checks throughout the month, so that the junk doesn't start accumulating again. Good luck!
