If you're a parent who believes in raising self-sufficient kids, then have I got a tip for you. It involves buying some simple drawer organizers and allowing your kid to put away clean silverware from the dishwasher as well as sort some of his or her own laundry.
Yes we're talking about that junk drawer. How many times have you gone to use a pen that doesn't work but it's still hanging out in there? Throw it away along with any dried up markers and sharpen the pencils so you can use them. Maybe there is a tool box or bag those tools belong to out in the garage? If you can't remember what those spare parts belong to throw those out as well! There may still be a need for various manuals and one way to store them is to keep them all in a large zip lock bag. You could even relocate all the contents of this drawer to a desk drawer if one is available.
Our youngest kids can't tackle a full dishwasher or the laundry just yet. But they are old enough to put away the silverware and manage their underwear and sock drawer. I placed a couple of drawer organizers in our large kitchen drawers and used a permanent marker to draw an outline of each utensil type inside each slot. Now the kids can follow the simple code and put away the silverware into the drawer organizers without any help from me. I think they've even made it into a game, to see who can finish first.
