founders story

At 25 years old, when I invented the Original Junk Drawer Organizer®, I was confident that my idea would be a success. What I never anticipated was that such a simple idea could lead to a 30-year journey that would allow me the opportunity to impact the future of home organization and grow to become an industry-leading business.


As unexpected as it was, I could not be more grateful, as it’s been easy to take pride in owning this company all these years. Still there are moments I think to myself, wow, it started with a junk drawer organizer, then all this happened.

While designs and consumer needs may change over the years, our values of quality, function, style, and affordability remain deeply rooted in the foundation of everything we create.


Today, the Original Junk Drawer Organizer® has become more than just a product. It has become a catalyst for growth and development, not only for our designs, but for myself and my team. Of this I am deeply proud. With so many paths in organization to explore, we’ve still got a long way to go. While we could never claim to predict what the future holds, we are always inspired to seek out new opportunities to make life more peaceful through organization, and we know that our passion to create thoughtful, beautifully designed products will continue one drawer at a time.
