A Little Organizing Inspiration

There’s an organizing blog that I love to read. It’s been doing wonders for motivating me to get our house more organized. This week, an organizing challenge was involved – cleaning up a drawer in 15 minutes. I can do 15 minutes! It also happens to be the length of a Curious George episode, which added extra incentive to work quickly. (Curious George = uninterrupted organizing)

Unfortunately, it took me a little longer than 15 minutes, because this drawer was OUT OF CONTROL. It became my junk drawer when Kaylia was born. I just did not have time to deal with junk and a newborn, so this is where I shoved everything. It got so bad that I didn’t want to deal with it. It got so bad that I’m actually embarrassed to be posting a picture of it:

However, a really horrible “Before” picture does make the “After” picture that much more impressive:

I kind of feel like I could take on the world…

What makes me especially happy is that although I would love to go out and buy pretty dividers and containers and other organizing paraphernalia, I conquered this drawer without buying anything new. (Being two hours away from civilization does have some perks…We’re not going into the city until next week, so I had to get creative, and figure out a way to make it work with what I had in the house!)
