So then I got one of my reusable grocery bags and I just tossed it all in...to get the drawer empty. I was really surprised to see all the sewing needles in the bag of the drawer. I put those in the pin cushion in my daughter's sewing kit. It occurs to me that I need my own pin cushion...although I rarely sew. We shall see. After sorting out the old pens and numerous emory boards and tossing those into the trash, I started putting things where they belonged. When I was done, the drawer was empty! Nothing left in my junk drawer.
Well for YEARS I have not had enough room for all my kitchen towels and dish rags. Now I do! The junk drawer has been re-purposed for something I actually needed. Woo Hoo! And here is the after pic.
I'm sharing this post over at A Slob Comes Clean for her May Decluttering Update. Thanks for letting me link up. Hopefully my decluttering will really take off like Nony's!!!!
