One Drawer at a Time

Let me clear the crickets away from this blog, and share a little bit of spring cleaning. I don't actually have a before picture. I was too ashamed. It was BAD. Witness protection program bad. I'm not even kidding. Half of the junk in the drawer was tossed into the trash. The other half was tools. I don't use tools, so there is only one culprit in this house that may have left them there (I write smugly, since I'm obviously not at fault for the mayhem). 

 My rubbery shelf liner was kind of crumpled and icky, so that was tossed in the trash as well. Once the drawer was completely empty, I vacuumed it out, wiped it out, and then put some pretty wrapping paper on the bottom. I don't know if it will last very long, but it is a colorful surprise, and it will do until I buy something else. 

I cleaned out our silverware tray and threw a bunch of stuff into the dishwasher. Our kitchen silverware drawer also doubles as a junk office supply drawer, and I didn't want to toss everything back in. But I also didn't feel like spending a million dollars on organizational stuff. I stopped at the dollar store and picked up two three packs of containers for two dollars. 

Be prepared for the big reveal, my friends....... 


Totally hot right? Hmmm.... maybe not the right word, but I'm pretty happy about it. I basically stuck like items together. Now I have a organized drawer, with one cat toy laser pointer that is randomly in with the scissors. I appreciate a little bit of chaos, after all. 

Also... I know what some of you are wondering, and yes, I do have more utensils. They were just getting squeaky clean in the dishwasher.
