Spring Organizing Challenge: Day 9

Today I think you need an easy challenge. After the hard work of the last couple of days you deserve to have an easy drawer to organize and it will just take minutes.  I used my hubby's as an example, and his response was "really', but he knows it is for the greater good of organizing men everywhere!  He is going to be thrilled that I am using the pictures again!...more
