Some of you may know of my quest for organization. Jonathan says that if I'm not reorganizing, I'm not happy. I think if I could just get organized... things would stay neater. I know, I know, who am I kidding?
So, here are some of my attempts at organizing. Some are successful, others not so much.
Here is a little pegboard art display. One for Anna, Lucy and Mommy. I found the paint on the mis-matched paint shelf. I think it's called "slaughterhouse floor". Just kidding. It's a whole lotta red though. This is working well for us, especially the little elastic bands and the bottom.
This is the BEST. I saw this somewhere on the internet so I can't take credit. It is basically drawer organizers made out of cereal/cracker boxes. Since I throw several boxes away each week, this took no time. I have purchased those plastic organizers in the past and they always almost work. Whenever I open the drawer everything would slide a little too the back and when I shut it I could hear everything sliding back to the front. I am always too cheap to shell out enough money to buy as many as I want anyway.
So, to make this you simply cut the bottom or side of box to the depth of your drawer. I used a utility knife but sturdy scissors would work. Everything has a little nook and because the boxes are so varied in size and flexible you get a nice tight fit.
Ok, I know that I could have painted my whole kitchen with the amount of money that I have spent on those blasted Benjamin Moore sample bottles you see. Man, those things are like crack.
Great for the "junk" drawer:
The kitchen utensil drawer:
I would post a photo of the bathroom drawers too but I think you get the point and I don't want to expose my multitude of anti aging products.
In closing we can assume that A. I need medication or B. I am missing my calling as a professional organizer.
