  • What's the point of the scarf?

  • I guess the scarf keeps the cans/jars from moving around too much? It'd keep them in a nice tight bunch and they'd probably be less likely to fall over.

  • I think that idea was really lame. You'd be better off buying one of the drawer inserts with many small compartments or using a series of small boxes, which is what I do.

    First of all, it would take a while to save all of those cans/jars, so it's not a quick fix and secondly, junk drawers typically have many different sizes/types of junk. It all doesn't fit perfectly into similar jars or cans.

    I don't get the idea of the scarf either, especially since I don't see it being implemented in the photo.
