Some drawers are more prone to getting random crumbs falling in them than others. The drawer that sits below our raised chopping area in the kitchen is the perfect candidate for this.
As I opened the drawer this evening, it occurred to me that it’s also underutilised, as it has many sections and I don’t use them all properly.
Although I had a really busy/productive day at work as well as a full evening cooking dinner and apple pie for dessert, I still had some energy left for one piece of decluttering. This drawer is what I chose for today.
I took everything out, wiped it around and only put back what we actually use. Just like when I sorted our other drawers a few weeks ago, there were so many random items in there that when I placed everything back, I was left with a couple of empty sections.
I looked around the kitchen to see what tends to get left out on the sides and decided to use the spare sections for pens, scissors, food bag clips and a tap measure. Let’s see if this works and we manage to return these items back to their place after we’ve used them. This is the final result.
It feels lovely when opening it now (sorry, I do get excited about the simplest of things).
One third of the year gone and I’m feeling quite good about my decluttering journey. I have some thoughts for my additional monthly summary post which I will share tomorrow.
