Oh dear. That's serious.

Is it stuff your ever really use? Could you dump all the drawers in a box and look through them to throw away and get rid of stuff that isn't needed? Then you can commit yourself to one junk drawer in your kitchen. Does that sound like to daunting of a task??

I do this once a month but for some reason they fill back up. Mostly with paper, toys, stuff I find laying around and I find a home for. I think today I am going to de-junk them again. If I had less junk drawers I would have more space. I find I get so many papers and I am never sure what to keep and what not to keep. I bought this three drawered plastic thing for all my taxes, bills, important documents but now its over ridden with cd's and other junk. I want to join this months declutter, I think it would be good for this house.

I agree..dump it all into a pile. Figure out what you need to keep, throw the rest away. Then make a list of what the items are (pencils, batteries, rubber bands etc). Measure the 1 or 2 drawers that you will use that will be your organized drawers and immediately go tot he store and buy little plastic or wood organization things. The kind that can be configured in different patterns and go organize the space.

Just a funny story - I know a woman on another chat board who had to move to another state having JUST given birth to her 4th child (oldest was 5yo!). Being a sensible person, she elected to have movers do most of the packing. When she got to her new house, she was mortified to find that the movers had packed her junk drawers by WRAPPING each piece of junk individually in paper and nestling it carefully into a box!
