The Junk Drawer.  Things go in and never come out.  Trying to keep it organized sometimes feels like a bad joke, but not anymore.  A tidy drawer is just an egg carton away!  This ingenius organizer can hold jewelry, craft supplies, art supplies – pretty much anything small enough to fit inside.  And it’s as close to free as you can get.  No more messy drawers for me!


  1. Slightly dampen a cloth with rubbing alcohol and gently wash out your empty egg carton.  This will help to kill germs.
  2. Paint the egg carton.  Spray paint would work, or you could hand paint with a brush.
  3. Fill up the egg carton with your stuff.  Easy!
