My clients had two junk drawers in their kitchen, one in their bedroom and two in their office. In those junk drawers was absolute chaos! Since they could never find what they needed when digging through the five drawers, they were constantly running to the store to buy various items.
Combining and sorting the contents of the five drawers was an eye-opening experience for them to see the hundreds of thumbtacks, batteries, rubber bands, chip clips, command strips, candles, balloons, loose change, spools of thread and so on. By creating one designated drawer and using drawer dividers, they can now find exactly what they need at home. No more running to the store to waste money on items they already own!
