What I’ve been organizing lately - Clearing kitchen drawers for a renovation

Though a lot of my time is spent sitting side by side with clients at their desks, paper lurks in all nooks and crannies of a home.  What happens when your contractor tells you he’s demolishing your kitchen cabinets next week and needs you to clear our the drawers?  Call the organizer!  We found coupons from 2012, instructions for products she no longer owned, mini-calendar pages with inspirational quotes, and more that you might be able to relate to.  Though moving and renovating are some of the best motivators for getting organized, why wait? 

Do you have drawers that look like this?  Can you tear tough them as if the sledgehammer is about to fall?  If so, where is it, what will you find, how much do you expect is trash, and by when will you clear them?  Please share in the comments!
