Its been a stressful past couple of weeks. A REALLY stressful past couple of weeks. Work has been ridiculous, but you know what makes me feel better? Order. A clean house. Organization. Recently I have been realizing how much less stressful and chaotic my life seems when I have a nicely organized home. Getting organized is definitely still a work in progress, but I think I have been making some real progress. After organizing my cleaning supplies and DVDs the next obvious project was the junk drawer.
Do any of you have a drawer like this? You know... the one where you stuff all the crap that has no other place? The one that you haven't seen the bottom off for a year and a half? The one that never closes all the way and you are embarrassed to open when you have company over?
I knew something had to give so the first step was to pull out the entire drawer. The next step was to dump everything out, but I'll spare you the horror.
I decided that it would be a good idea to use some type of organizer since I seem to be incapable of keeping things neat on my own. I picked this one up at Target.
Ta-daaaa! Look how nice! AND it feels to good! To tell you the truth, most of the crap in that drawer was junk or just plain 'ol trash anyway.
It's amazing how accomplished completing a simple project can make you feel. Now I smile every time I open the drawer!
Sometimes the simple things are the best things. What do you do when you've had a stressful workweek?
