Organize Your Desk Drawers

mess We have lived in our present home since 2008 and since then I have been shoving more and more into my desk drawer.  It has been time to clean this drawer out for some time now, but I just didn’t make time for it.  My husband has been talking about needing desk drawers in his office and that made me think about all the drawers I was lucky enough to have, but couldn’t even use because they were jam packed! Check out the picture above, those are just a few of the items I found while cleaning out this drawer.  You can see a swimming medal that my son won back in 2008, and a Christmas ornament that needed a picture placed inside it that reads “Christmas 2001.”  The notebook with the kid drawings belonged to my oldest son that is now fourteen and the bag, it is full of expired coupons, receipts, papers, etc. that needed to be thrown away a long time ago.  I also was lucky enough to find money, and  even gift cards that I had won in a drawing at a Christmas party one year.  Now I have $25 to spend at Bath and Body Works and $100 to spend at the local steak house! drawerLook at my organized drawer, I am thrilled to be able to put it to use and actually see the bottom of it.  Keep in mind, this is just one of my desk drawers.  I still have three very full ones left to go through, but for now, I am pleased with using this one. How long has it been since you’ve cleaned out one of your junk drawers?  Who knows the treasures you may find!
