It’s 2020 y’all and I’m introducing you to my new series Clutter 2 Cute. It’s for those of us who consider ourselves organized but there are just some things that we need to work on. I’ve got a lot of things in mind around my home but to get my feet wet in this whotle decluttering process, I started small and decided to work on my kitchen junk drawer.
The drawer was filled with STUFF and it was one of things I completely avoided but I knew I had enough when I was looking for a pair of keys that I knew was in there but I couldn’t find it. So I plotted and planned and took a trip to Homegoods and Ikea to get some organization solutions
With every organization project there are 3 things you need to do going in to tackle your clutter and they are as follows
- Assess Your Mess take a look at your stuff to see the different types of items you have in there
- Categorize Get 3 or 4 bins/boxes to put each type of item in each box. ie. all office supplies go in one box and kitchen supplies in another and remember to have a misc bin for random items
- Trash Keep a trash bag near, so you can get rid of anything that you don’t need.
Once you have cleaned out your drawer its time to clean up, its a junk drawer so depending on how junky your drawer is, will determine how many wipes. I needed 2 clorox wipes
There is no wrong way to place your pieces, however you should put them the way you work in your space.
It took an overall 10-15 minutes from cleaning out, cleaning up and reorganizing. I’m ready to take on a bigger project…. I’m thinking a linen closet. If you’re not the reading type but definitely the watching type, watch the video.
Hope you liked it and tackle you next reorg project.
