Welcome to day twenty seven of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing the Junk Drawer.
Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead.
Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.
I think every home as a junk drawer and who ever started that idea, I love it. Our junk drawer is where all different items/gadgets/tools live. It is also where my family drops things they don’t know where to put or where they belong. With that being said junk drawers can become very messy and cluttered. So let’s set those timers and go. You will want to make piles for sorting, to go back in, to relocate, to review (papers/mail) and trash. Once you are done, anything that needs to be relocated, take these items to where they belong. This task took me about 10 mins, a quick wipe was done too before putting everything away.
How long did this task take you? Does your junk drawer serve a purpose or is it just a dumping ground?
