How to Keep Drawers Neat and Tidy

September 18, 2014 5:04 pm

Just about every home has a junk drawer. You know the one: You fill it with your extra batteries, pens, a few stray kids’ toys, and a variety of other things that simply don’t have their own place. If your junk drawer drives you crazy, these simple tips will show you how to organize it once and for all.

  1. Clean it out. It’s definitely not the most fun task, but in order to maintain clean drawers you have to first empty the drawer out entirely. Toss out anything that you don’t use, and put everything else in a pile to be organized before going back into the drawer.
  2. Invest in a few organizers. If your drawer is particularly large, it may be helpful to add a few organizers to create separate areas for all of the items inside. Most home goods stores carry plastic or mesh drawer dividers that fit just about any drawer.
  3. Think of different ways to store items. If you’re tackling a dresser drawer, don’t be afraid to “file” t-shirts instead of stacking them. Although this may not be the way that you were taught, it certainly helps you to access items more easily and keep the drawer neater.
  4. Add a sachet. Even basic items like office supplies or clothing can start to smell musty when stored in a drawer, so add a scented sachet to keep things smelling fresh.

Happy Teddy Bear Day!!!

September 9, 2014 7:48 pm

It is National Teddy Bear Day! It is a day to celebrate the toy that many kids can't live without.

The stuffed toy got its name from President Theodore Roosevelt. While hunting in Mississippi in 1902, he refused to shoot a small bear. The Washington Post picked up on this story, and made a cartoon of the event. Toy store owners, Morris and Rose Michtom, wrote to President Roosevelt for permission to call their stuffed animals "Teddy Bears". Their company went on to become the Ideal Toy Company, one of the largest toy companies in the world.
