When it comes to organizing, you don’t have to start off by tackling an entire basement or kitchen – think small, start small!
For example; I had a tidy kitchen, but not once you opened the cupboards! You cant organize them all at once, or even within one day. Pick one thing or area that is really bothering you the most, or that you are most excited to get looking differently.
What is the most cluttered?
Lets turn this junk drawer to a junk drawer no-more!
Yes maybe this changes the name of the “junk” drawer – but if you insist on having one in your kitchen, lets get it decluttered so you don’t have to dig and dig to find what you are looking for!
A simple fix?
Categorize. Get a few thin and/or long baskets, and maybe another wide and short basket. I knew this drawer was a spot I always kept my batteries, pens and spare keys -but they were not easily accessible when I needed them! Get a few baskets that will fit in your drawer and place them however you see fit!
- From there (in each basket) categorize! Pens, pencils, erasers, markers all in one. In another, all those batteries. Many different kinds? AA, AAA, C, D? Lets organize those a step further with bundling similar batteries with rubber bands then place them in your basket!
By keeping these similar items together and categorized they will make the junk drawer still full of your random items but once you can find in a second that than a minute.
One drawer down, many to go ! Happy organizing!
