*Empty the drawer entirely.
*Sort the items into categories, e.g. pens, paper, rubber bands, paper clips etc.
*Discard items that are broken or dirty.
*Donate or recycle items that you have an excessive amount of. You may find yourself with 47 pens. Even if you place a few pens in each room, you’ll still have too many!
*Clean out the drawer, and if desired, insert a drawer liner.
*Insert the drawer organizer into the drawer and begin organizing your items. If the organizer is packed full, then you need to purge some more.
