Another Random Act of Organization

I’m having organizer’s block on my little girl’s closet project. So, as my goal is to finish one project a week, and now it is Tuesday (2 days past my deadline), I decided to take a little break from thinking about the closet today and hit something small and attainable — my junk drawer.

I don’t have a before picture, but it was bad. A box broke spilling pencils and pens everywhere so I could hardly open the drawer — a sign it needs to be organized.  This was a spontaneous act so I used what I could find on hand to replace my broken box.  This is what I came up with.

I cut off the bottom of a couple Cheerio boxes, covered them in contact paper and I had two new boxes for my pens and pencils. I also got rid of stuff. This is the key component to being organized. You just can’t have so much.  I’m not quite at the minimalist stage — I know I still have more than I need — but I am down-sizing to bring order. You would not believe the number of pencils I had “before”. Here is my “after” shot.

Sigh. . . There’s nothing like a clean drawer. Maybe now my organizer’s block will be cleared and I can finally finish that closet.
