Show and Tell Thursday: Junk Drawer


This is the primary junk drawer. (They are ALL junk drawers, however. )
We seem to have an extraordinary amount of flashlights, stamps and homeopathic remedies.
Another drawer was all batteries, all the time.
But the true junk area was purged last week. It's a counter in the mud room that gets everything dumped on it. Teeny pieces of supposedly important slips of paper; many different diaper bags, purses, computer carriers and briefcases. NONE of them in use, of course. I cleared it off this past week and shredded all the old receipts. Happily put the diaper bags away. Yahoo; we are done with that. Until, God Forbid, one of us starts wearing Depends...

I see junk, but it's sorted! Please come to my house. I will pay. It's Australian dollars but still hard currency.

See - I'm not the only one who wants you to come clean my house! You could make the big bucks.

The secret to junk-drawer organization is using tupperware containers that have long since lost their lids and wide cottage cheese or yoghurt containers. The set-in organizers you buy at the store have cubbies that are too long, or not wide enough, etc.

And yes; so many Boiron tubes. Homeopathy works so well in young children. And me, to some extent. I used to use herbs, but what child can swallow capsules? And stinky, bitter tea? Nope. Sugar pills? You betcha!
