Most kitchens are similar in that they have a refrigerator, stove, oven, and sink. They are also typically similar in that they have a junk drawer.
The junk drawer usually contains stray batteries, rubber bands, paper clips, coupons, pens, pennies, matches, receipts, spare keys, and recipes torn off food boxes. At one time, the drawer was probably organized and uncluttered. Now, it might be disorganized and overflowing with clutter.
These catch-all drawers are useful when they’re orderly, but frustrating when they’re chaotic. I’ve found that a drawer organizer can help to keep the space organized longer than it will without one. Like a clothes closet, though, this drawer does need to be cleaned out a couple times a year to ensure it is best meeting your needs.

I also like the Expand-A-Drawer Desk Organizer that works with many drawer sizes:
The wood Axis Junk Drawer Organizer also looks nice:
Consider using a drawer organizer when looking for ways to keep chaos out of your junk drawer.
