The rubbish draw

I believe every home has a rubbish or junk draw where odd items get collected together and normally the process is very straight forward with three easy steps 1. open the draw 2. throw the odd item in 3. close the draw. 

Our rubbish draw was our hall table draw. 


I especially like this table as it fits perfectly into the wall between the stairs and my pantry cupboard. 

Tinkerbell our miniature dachshund enjoys sitting under the table on a little ledge that is just off the floor. 

My rubbish draw is still filled with odd bits and pieces however now there is a little more order. 


I began by emptying the draw and recycling any paper and throwing away any other items that really were rubbish. 

I then used little box lids to act as dividers for keys, pens, sticky notes and small boxes for battery’s and stamps. 

With the right kind of organization even a rubbish or junk draw can look reasonable tidy, with regular maintenance to ensure it remains organized. 

It is possible as my rubbish draw needs change that I will again look at the way I store my odd items however for the moment another organization task ticked off my list! 

Happy Monday Friends!
