Wednesdays are my days off and I adore having a day right smack in the middle of the week to do whatever. In the last year I’ve spent Wednesdays for the most part, slacking. When I was taking care of Dad in his hospital rooms I didn’t mind one slack day a week. Every other day was either at work or with him, a time I am so glad I had now that he has passed. Anyway, I’m trying to get myself motivated once again.
I’ve been trying to wake up early every morning except Sundays but this week I’m actually doing it. I wish I’d taken Before photos of the drawers in my kitchen. They were abominable. Three were chock full of odds-and-ends (to be fair we called them the “junk drawers”) and the other two were simply badly organized. No longer! Now I have a “cutlery drawer” so our sandwich and veg prep station is complete!
I hauled every bit out of them (so many old pay stubs!) and tossed quite a lot. I have a tendency to hold on to little objects much longer than necessary, erasers shaped like pandas, for example. I kept a few of these things, others went into the “give away/donate” box — I put two books in there, too, I am growing! And now I can have two utility drawers.
This way our small tools, like my “good screwdrivers” (a very long story for another day). And, to make my father proud, all cords are tied up with a zip tie. On the top you can see my binders. The first two white ones are for Instruction Manuals and Takeout Menus, the green is my Wedding binder, and the last is my Household Binder which I was inspired to create after reading a collection of posts by Jen @ I Heart Organizing. Actually, getting down to the nitty gritty and redoing the drawers was also inspired by her site. I heart that place, quite a bit.
I am obviously having way too much fun with my new phone and photo apps.
