Well, cleaning out our three kitchen junk drawers took longer than the fifteen minutes I predicted.
But, I’m so happy with the outcome.
I sorted through it, filled plastic bags with garbage, garage items and office items.
And, the beautiful afters:
I bought the organizers at Bed Bath and Beyond. The extra kitchen utensils and silverware are in the left drawer and the extras that I like to have on hand (tape, scissors, hammer, batteries, notepads) are in the right. Below, the drawer holds our phone books. It’s heavenly.
The best part is that we can easily find things now. What a relief and a great way to start 2009!
Feeling inspired to empty your own junk drawers? Since I have an unhealthy obsession with Real Simple, I also thought I would share the video that I stumbled on from Real Simple Real Life about cleaning out your own dreaded junk drawer. The steps are simple, but still worth following.
So, do you have a junk drawer?? Where is it?
