Have you watched "The Home Edit" on Netflix? In case you missed it, it is a show about professional organizers who own the company "The Home Edit" where they will come in and help you edit and organize different spaces in your home. They also have books to help you do this on your own but the real treat is watching them do it for other people. I'm convinced the show would make even the least organized person want to tackle their closet or pantry. I wanted to give it a go, but wasn't quite prepared to get all the various bins and organizational tools recommended so I decided to start small.
My junk drawer.
We all have one, and actually we probably have like 3 but this is our main junk drawer that sits at the edge of our kitchen counter. The home edit process is as follows:
1. Take everything out of the space.
2. Edit- purge what you don't need, use, want, is out of date etc.
3. Sort/categorize items remaining.
4. Contain- put the categories into containers to help set up a lasting system.
So I took everything out...
Edited and categorized it...I don't have a picture of this part but I did cull several unwanted/unneeded items.
Put it into these handy containers from Target...
