Organizational Challenge Small Space Completion

I have completed the Organizational Challenge sponsored by Organizing Junkie!
My "small space" category is a "junk" drawer in our kitchen.

Before................................ and.......................After
1. What was the hardest part of the challenge for you and were you able to overcome it?

The hardest part was sorting the items and untangling all the wires. I was able to do it, though.

2. Tell us what kind of changes/habits you have put into place in order for your area/room to maintain its new order?

I have three baskets in the front of the drawer. One is for office supplies. One is for chargers and electronic pieces. The third basket is for the mp3 players and arm bands my husband and daughter use frequently when they run along with the pedometer. The decks of cards are in baggies to keep them together.

3. What did you do with the “stuff” you were able to purge out of your newly organized space?

Most of it went in the trash. There is a drawer by the computer for all of the user manuals for various electronic pieces that were in there. Some of it went up to my children’s rooms where it belonged in the first place.

4. Now that you have completed the challenge, do you think having and keeping your space organized will make a difference in your life?

Absolutely! I like to be able to find things, and I think each item should have a designated place. And if you take something out, put it back where it belongs when you’re finished using it.

6. Why do you think you should win the challenge?

I worked hard, and I am pleased with the new appearance of my “junk” drawer. I can actually see the bottom of it!


  1. Now that's a good looking drawer!

  2. It looks great. Having those little baskets in there will really help keep things organized.

  3. Nice Drawer! :)

    (that sounded dirty, but you know it wasn't! ;) )

  4. It definitely can't be called a "junk" drawer now! It looks GREAT! :)

  5. Looks great!
    Junk drawers are one of the hardest spots to organize, I think. They have a black hole capability, able to hold 3x the volume of a normal drawer.

  6. Good work! Isn't it nice being able to find things in the junk drawer!?


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
