I found CD's, two wallets that I haven't used in a while, empty jewelry tins, a cell phone charger, photos, and a ton of receipts. One of the receipts was from our first trip to Wal-Mart when we moved into this house 18 months ago. Time to throw it out!
I did a thorough purge and realized none of those things needed to go back into the drawer. Hmmm, so, what should go into the drawer? I decided to put my everyday jewelry in it. It's so much faster to just reach in the drawer and grab what I need instead of getting out my jewelry box (which is kept on a shelf far away from little hands) where I keep my "good" jewelry. I placed a piece of non-slip fabric in each basket to keep everything in its place. Here's how the drawer looks now.
One of the boxes was just the perfect size to keep the little girls' jewelry in. That works much better than them keeping it in their rooms.:)
