Often when I run out of things in my own home to organize, I beg my friends to let me organize something in their homes just so I can get a “fix”. I get the shakes and start frothing at the mouth if I go to long without organizing something which is just so not pretty. So to
enable me avoid that whole ugly scenario my friends agree to let me into their drawers just so they don’t have to watch a grown women have a total melt down. I’ve got the best of friends what can I say!
Junk Drawer Organization:
So one day as I was visiting my girlfriend and we were waiting for the tea kettle to boil, I got to work on a quick junk drawer makeover. Seriously these projects take no time at all yet we often put them off thinking we need to set aside hours of time. You don’t. Set your timers and let’s get organizing!
Dump the whole thing out. Yep even with small projects it works to follow the PROCESS. Give it a quick wipe down while you’ve got the chance.
Then do a sort and toss! I forgot to take a picture of the toss pile which is unfortunate because it was a pretty good size. A family only needs so many pens my friends :)
Use whatever bins, baskets or boxes (tea boxes work great!) you can find around the house to provide some limits and boundaries to your stuff. Trust me it helps!!
Took no time at all and we finished just in time for tea. By then the shakes had subsided and I could hold my cup of tea without spilling it all over the floor. Circle of life I tell ya! :)
So how about dumping a drawer today!! Feel free to send me pictures too, I love seeing what you gals (& guys) are working on!!
