When the Spring-Cleaning Bug hits us in a few months, there is one area of clutter and disorganization which always gets overlooked… the JUNK DRAWER. Oh, admit it, you have one. We all have that spare drawer storing all of the items we use once and never use again. This drawer of treasures in reality is a nothing more than a drawer of the forgotten and overlooked.
January is the perfect time to dig through those junk drawers and toss the items you will never use. If you haven’t used an item in the drawer in over a year, you will probably never use that item in the future. Trash it! As you dig through that cluttered drawer, you may actually find a few things you HAVE been needing for months, something you thought was lost for good. Nope! It has been right under your nose the entire time.
Before digging through the dusty clutter that lies within that junk drawer, coat your hands with a healthy coverage of Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream. The coating will shield your hands like a protective glove from the germs and the grime covering years of stored cumulations. Once the job is completed, your skin will wipe clean with ease.
TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR JUNK DRAWER
RESTAURANT MENUS – Keep restaurant menus together in a zip lock bag. This will not only keep them all together, but the airtight seal will slow down the deterioration of the paper. REMEMBER: If the restaurant no longer exists, toss the menu. The restaurant is not coming back.
9-VOLT BATTERIES – Be sure 9-Volt Batteries are stored safely. Yes, they can actually be a fire hazard! If the poles on two different 9-volt batteries touch, they could cause a spark which could in return risk a fire hazard. Be sure all 9-Volt batteries are separated and stored so that the poles of separate batteries cannot touch.
DIVIDE AND CONQUER – Pop over to one of those Big Box Stores and ask about Drawer Organizers. There are plenty on the market. Adding a few divider walls within your junk drawer will make life so much easier and it will make losing things a bit more difficult.
