Getting Organized - Day One!

Happy New Year!
 
I'm participating in the 21 Days until my house looks like the one below challenge!
Today's assignment from A Bowl Full of Lemons is cleaning out our junk drawer.  Perfect!
I don't have one.

No...really...I don't - see?
 It broke a few weeks hours ago and it's Dan's "to fix" pile.

So I choose three other kitchen drawers that have been driving me crazy.
These went from this:


to this:
Everything was dumped out, cleaned and scrubbed and I threw away a few things as well.

It took me 15 minutes and I already feel better about my messy kitchen!

Dearest,
I am going to clean my "junk" drawer right now. I won't blog about it but just know that in 15 minutes your Kitty friend will have the cleanest junk drawer on this little Alabama block.
Happy New Year Dear Friend.
I adore you.
love love,
Kitty

I just took your challenge and cleaned out the pantry and a junk cupboard. Yesterday we did a massive overhaul on the toys. If I keep this up, in 21 days my house is going to be immaculate!

Hey, my kitchen cabinets look like that too. We have had to fix two drawers where the face of them have simply fallen off. Gotta love those cheep cabinets Centex put in our homes!
