Challenge #1 - Junk Drawer

Well it's officially begun and I couldn't be more excited.  The 21 day challenge over at A Bowl Full of Lemons started with the Junk Drawer.  Even though I had house guests, I managed to squeeze this one in.  I dumped everything out and made the hubs sit with me and help since this is technically his drawer.  I wanted to make sure I knew what to purge and he knew where things went, so I don't hear, "Lindsay, where is my...."

Here is the before, a drawer full of tried-to-maintain-order:

And the after with a little order:

We are cheap around here, so I used some velveeta boxes.  They are sturdy cardboard and make great drawer dividers.  I have plans to spray paint them this Spring so they don't look so cheap.

Can't wait to see the other ideas you ladies come up with!
