Last week I walked into the kitchen and was blinded by this:
Yes this seems to be the spot where we drop just about anything and everything. By the end of the week it ends up looking like the picture above x 10! (I spare you the really BAD pics....your welcome)
If you remember my post about my latest organization finds, I found some great Nate Berkus office organization at our local Target store. Well... I went back this week and bought these little beauties:
I could not stand the corner of the kitchen in such disarray anymore!
So for only $20, I have an organized drop spot!!
I placed all the little items that we need to grab quickly in the bottom drawer like: Stamps, address labels, bank deposit slips, office supplies and our headphones for the gym!
I also reused an old video tape case to organize all the paperclips that were once just thrown into the drawer. Isn't it amazing what you can find around your home?
I even tackled the Junk Drawer below. I seriously have been throwing things in this drawer for about 5 years! I would say that is a little embarrassing, but we are all friends right? I show you mine...you show me yours :)
I used my friend Jen from IHeartOrganizing's idea with using what you have around the house, like cereal boxes! I cut them down to fit in the drawer and now they house some of my everyday random items. Jen's were of course a little cuter than mine, but I didn't have the patience to wrap mine in cute paper. Maybe someday..
So what do you think? I actually know where everything is and I don't have to dig in the drawer or below piles anymore! (well, for at least this week)
What have you been organizing lately! Do share!
