Organization is helpful. It’s a wonderful thing. It saves time and money. One New Years resolution that I made at the beginning of the new year is to reorganize some home areas that have gotten out of hand.
First, I tackled my silverware drawer. In order to really get re-organized, I began with taking all my silverware out of the silverware drawer. Then I cleaned the silverware holder. I waned to start from a clean slate with organizing the silverware in the proper order. Here is a picture of the items all out of the drawer:
I found items that did clearly did not need to be in my silverware drawer or even in my life. Case in point: horribly rusty corn-on-the-cob holders. Why am I keeping these? No longer!
Here is the silverware drawer after it was finished. Organization is a blessing!!!
My second project was reorganizing my kitchen cupboard. I utilized a similar theme where I took everything out of the cupboard to have a clean work space. I told myself that I could reorganize the least cluttered cabinet in 5 minutes. Honestly, that estimate was to motivate myself. In truth, I was happy that it only took about 15-20 minutes. The difference was remarkable. I wish I had taken a before photograph of the mess and disorganization to really commemorate how bad it looked. Afterwards, I was very proud of the organizing my plastic Ziploc type containers and Rubbermaid containers on one shelf with the middle shelf for more nicer ceramic and other dishes. The top shelf was for my popcorn and bigger bowl. Here is a picture of the final result:
May these new year’s resolutions projects inspire you to organize something in your life!!!
