Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff Organizing Pesky Knick Knacks
Pens, Rubber bands, paperclips, small tools and other knick knacks – we all have them. They are among many pesky necessities for any home or office, and they are often stored in a disorganized, chaotic mess. Do you have a junk drawer in your home? Is your office storage space a cluttered mess of items that you struggle to keep organized? Don’t sweat the small stuff – simplify your life by taking steps to find storage solutions for these items.
If you are like most people and struggle to keep small items and knick knacks organized, here are some helpful tips for organizing these items in your junk drawer, office desk or even your closet.
- Pull all the items that need to be organized out of your closet or drawer and put them in a pile.
- Throw away any trash and sort remaining items into two piles: items you need to keep, that don’t have another more appropriate storage space, and items that would be better kept elsewhere.
- Group similar items together by type or purpose.
- Determine the best location for each item. Office supplies should be in your office, or desk drawer. Tools may be better kept in a kitchen drawer or closet.
Once the items have been sorted and grouped, separate them into a drawer organizer, or organizing containers you’ve selected. Some of our favorite containers for storing knick knacks and other small items include glass canisters, small fabric-covered boxes and hanging boxes. Clear or see-through containers are ideal for sorting and storing small items.
Small, pesky knick knacks can add undue stress to your life if left unorganized. You may find that you are more readily distracted in your office when knick knacks and other such items fill your shelves or desk drawers. Organize these items in your home or office and you’ll feel more organized and always know where to find them when you need them.
