Now that I am back home and things are back to regular-scheduled-programming, I feel the need to get started on something. My kitchen is probably the only area that didn't get a lot of attention in the purge and de-cluttering of last year so this is my first mountain to tackle here. It is completely overwhelming to me and I think that's why I haven't done it before. I start thinking about all the problems and how this doesn't function, and that doesn't work, and how I desperately need a pantry, and I just throw my hands up and say "forget it, it's hopeless - let's just gut it". But, then my husband talks me down from my hysteria, as he often has to do, and ever so gently reminds me that would cost a lot of money (because he knows my taste), and that we have to work with what we have. Blah.
So, last night as I was perusing my kitchen pinterest board, I decided I needed to take it apart and do small pieces at a time. I need to see results quickly or I lose interest. So, today I am going to tackle my drawers. Here are some photos I snapped this morning of the worst culprits - don't judge you know you have these drawers.
Yikes!! So, this is what is on my agenda today - purging - getting rid of things I don't need - and organizing - trying to find a system that will fit each drawer to make it more purposeful. Oh and also you know what else is staring me in the face after vacation? This...
Ugh!! Wish me luck!!
