I don't know about you but after seeing Megan's amazing kitchen over at Honey We're Home, I wanted to snoop around a bit. Good thing for me, she agreed to play along in letting us see whats inside her drawers. No shock, Megan's self defined 'mess' is not really a mess at all but at least we can say we saw whatever dark side there was to this beautiful space.
Aye, aye, aye! For me, a lover of all things organized, Stefanie asking me to show my junk drawers feels sorta like the equivalent of being caught with my pants down! I kid! But, this was just the nudge I needed to clear out some drawers in the kitchen and get them in tip-top shape!
The drawer I immediately knew I wanted to tackle is our “large kitchen tools” drawer. It’s one of the most frequently used, and while pretty much everything in it belonged in there, it was all a jumbled mess.
A quick trip to the Container Store, also known as Mecca for those-who-love-to-organize, and I bought a few clear containers to store my tools. I measured the drawer first to see what sizes I would need.
I started by taking everything out of the drawer and grouping similar tools together.
Look what I even found- the cover to my meat thermometer! I thought it got thrown out when we moved! (isn’t finding things a great reward for getting organized?)
Our wooden spoons, spatulas, whisks, and tongs go in these silver containers that I got at Bed, Bath, and Beyond - for easy access while cooking.
A few minutes later . . .
Thank you Stefanie for the little nudge! I’m pulling my pants back up now;)
