So apparently January is organize all the things month! I am the friend that organizes all year. I am always looking for different ways to organize some part of this house ! Being that I really hadn’t had a lot of chances to organize the way I would like. I have taken this month to just kind of be still and get my house together.
I am not ashamed to say that I still have boxes in the garage that have not been unpacked yet. It takes time to get a house together. And no this isn’t our first one, however we have more stuff than we did in the last house. Not all things that I need either. So I have been seriously purging things and just taking my time to create systems that will work for us. I am hoping that along the way, they will be able to help you too.
Ok so I have a confession… I love to organize!! No I mean really love it ! There is something about an organized space that just sings to me !!! I think I’ve told you that before though.
One of the first things I did when we moved in was organize our kitchen. That included the drawers too! I already had a lot of these clear bins. So I just did what I do best. Organize ALL the things !! I wanted to show you how I organized my spice drawer. About a year ago, I found these cute jars in the one spot at Target !! So I bought as many as they had already knowing what I wanted to do with them. Having to search through all the spices and looking at the different containers they come on drives me bananas !! So I wanted to create a space that I could go straight to them.
I knew that a drawer would be the perfect solution. You won’t believe where I found this spice organizer… wait for it …. Wal-Mart ! Even though I don’t go there often. This particular day I happened to be in there and I saw this ! Had to get it.
From there, I choose from my extensive source of wrapping paper. This particular one, I can wipe out if it gets dirty. I used my label maker to make the label for the spices and voilà !! Easy peasy!! Nothing special or magical, just good planning and some creative thinking !!
This drawer isn’t only pretty, but it’s super functional and you know I love that !!
January won’t be the only month we’re organizing, you and I will be organizing together all year-long !
Tell me some ways that you’ve started getting organized in your homes?
Until next time
Happy Organizing !
