Simplifying the Junk Drawer

This is one of the two junk drawers we have in our kitchen. I’m pretty sure I’ve cleaned this out one or two times before – obviously I did a good job since it’s back to this state. So I decided it was time to tackle both drawers and simplify those suckers. This is more difficult than you’d think with Sean being the handyman and the chef – and therefore using these drawers more than me. You’ll notice there’s an assortment of tools, kitchen utensils, and miscellaneous other items – as is frequently the case with junk drawers. The drawer over looks pretty similar to this one (I forgot to take a picture of it before cleaning – just imagine a similar state of disarray and crap).

To be honest, there’s probably a bit more cleaning and trashing I could/need to do, but this is a decent start. I went to Target last weekend and got six different containers – three for each drawer – and then I sorted. Each drawer took all of ten minutes. Why did I wait so long to do this again?

Now what to simplify next?
