Every Day Solutions: Kitchen Containers


Ahh, the junk drawer. We all have one. It's the place where stray paper clips get tossed and countless pens dry out over the years. That spare key you lost six months ago is probably in there, along with the needle and thread you needed last week to repair your favorite shirt. It's a doohickey graveyard of sorts, the place where your important miniatures get hidden because they don't have a true home.

But you don't have to banish your belongings to a life of darkness. Basic kitchen wares can double as organizers (and triple as cool, eclectic decor) so your doodads can once again see the light of day and get out of that junk drawer!

You have perfect timing! I was just rummaging throught our junk drawer the other day...found a key, of course which neither I or the BF knew what is was for :)

And I'm loving the cheese grater idea...I think it would also be great for holding mail pieces that need to be sorted!
