Clutter-oholics-Anonymous Week 3-Kelley

posted in: Uncategorized | 1

Last week my husband suggested that we tackle the office/craft room/let’s-just-put-it-in-there room.  We actually made a good bit of progress, but I was sick with strep throat and the baby was sick with a string of the Measles AND an ear infection…so it didn’t get finished. But, because I promised myself that I was going to do this thing (and do it right) I made it a point to complete something on my list.

It’s that thing that everyone has, everyone hates, everyone cringes at when they realize it’s time to do something about it.

The kitchen ‘junk drawer’. (Doom doom DOOM!!!)

Granted, it’s probably one of the smallest projects on my list, but it still took me over an hour to really clean it out, organize its contents, and put away the junk that didn’t belong in the drawer.  Here’s my ‘before’:

Sadly, there were no craft projects associated with this clean-up. There were, however, various piles of items that were to go to various rooms of the house: the office, the craft room, my bathroom, the garage, and even my MOM’S house.

What is it about organizing your junk drawer that makes you feel refreshed?


Hopefully next week won’t bring more sickies our way and I’ll be able to tackle a real project.  For now, I think I’ll go hunt for a rubber band…because I finally know where they are!

    Ok, your junk drawer “before” pic is nicer than mine now. I kind of pride myself on a neat home, but my junk drawer tells my true colors :) I think the finished product is fabulous. It almost inspires me to tackle mine. Almost.
