Everything You Need to Organize Your Junk Drawer
A few new trays, some essential gadgets and tips from the editors at HGTV Magazine will change everything.
Jazz Up Your Junk Drawer:
With These Organizing Ideas
- Line your drawer with removable wallpaper. It wipes clean and comes in so many patterns!
Vary your container sizes. A mini tray is perfect for stamps and matches, while larger ones can corral oddly shaped gadgets like flashlights or keys. If you're always losing your glasses, make a rimmed tray their new home base.
Avoid crumpled receipts by laying them flat and securing them together with a binder clip.
A nest of tangled cords will make any drawer look messy. Corral them with Velcro cable ties and cord wraps.
If you keep spare keys in here, make sure you label them. Customized acrylic tags on each key ring will do the trick.
And These Genius Tools
A lint roller is key for quick touch-ups as you’re heading out the door. A retractable one takes up minimal space.
A label maker is an organizer’s best friend. A super compact model can be stored anywhere.
- Must-have supplies like a flashlight and glue are common residents of the junk drawer. A small multi-tool is also handy to stash here.
