Spring time also reminds me to Spring clean. This year my main goal was to go through each room of our home and clear out everything that wasn't useful or beautiful. I ended up boxing it all up and taking it to a brand new consignment thrift store in our little town of Birch Bay... and I made $43! I couldn't believe it. I've never consigned before and I think I am hooked now.
Rubbermaid recently sent me a set of their Junk Drawer Organizers to review and I ended up putting them to good use and liking them quite a bit! I have to admit that I don't really have a junk drawer so I organized the top drawer of our computer desk instead. You can see the "before" picture below. It was organized with an old plastic storage container and some cardboard boxes that slid around a lot and looked messy.
The drawer organizers are interlocking as you can see in this photo. At first I didn't think that these would be sturdy when locked together, but I was very surprised when I put them to use. They stay in place very well because of the lip on the edge, and the grippy feet on the bottom.
Each tray is lined with grippy rubber. This is useful so that things within the containers don't slide around.
Six pieces in the set. You can find these here, on the Rubbermaid site, and you can also buy them as a set at Walmart because I've seen them there.
My "after" photo. This organizing set fit into the drawer perfectly and holds a lot. I really like the three small sections for holding all those little odds and ends that usually get lost in the drawer. If you have a junk drawer that needs some help, read this useful article. I also like this post over at Organizing Junkie about why containerizing is important.
