Organised Stationery Drawer

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Organise your desk drawer so it’s no longer a junk drawer stuffed full of old papers and broken stationery. Containers are a great way to keep similar items together and easily findable!

One of my desk drawers at home was full of office supplies, odds and ends, notes, and all the random things that somehow end up in a junk drawer! It’s quite frustrating not being able to find something you are looking for, and having to sift through a bunch of random items. I emptied the drawer, wiped it out, tossed broken pens and old papers, and organised it using my new clear containers from Organised HQ. Now I can easily find what I am looking for, no more hunting for a pen or post-it notes!

Steps to Clean and Organise Your Desk Drawers

  • Empty out the drawer
  • Sort through the contents and decide what needs to be kept and what should be thrown out
  • Rehome items if they don’t belong in your desk drawer
  • Wipe out and clean the inside of the drawer
  • Sort the items you are keeping into groups with other like items
  • Use containers to keep items together and organised
  • Measure the interior dimensions of the drawer if you are planning to purchase new containers to organise the contents
  • Select containers that will fit both the drawer and the contents
