C’mon, you know you have one! We all do. It’s that drawer in your kitchen that you just toss everything in to – spare keys, batteries, pens, tape, old candy, those crappy toys your kids get in goodie bags. Yes, that drawer.
Yesterday I decided to clean mine. And just an FYI, I actually have two of them.
This is just a sample of what I pulled out:
(Sorry for the bad photos. My digital is giving me trouble lately. Had to use the iPhone!)
And I filled the trash can!
I bought drawer organizers at Target. I believe these are intended for just this purpose. Actually, I found them with the silverware.
After all of the heavy purging I ended up with a lot of stuff. I designated one drawer for household items we use regularly. The other drawer was for quick access home improvement stuff like nails, hammer, screwdrivers and paint touch-up. By tossing all the packaging and keeping only the product, I found a lot of space!
Now I am left with an organized “communication” center. Pads, pens and pencils are at the ready. Need new batteries? They are right here! A picture needs hanging and I know just where to go! On top of the counter I have quick access stuff – a basket with the dog brush, a note pad, pens and scissors, a box of tissues and a file with school papers. Plus the phone and my iHome speakers for some tunes while we clean and cook!
Home organization makes me happy! Next up- THE PANTRY!!!
