Project Simplify: Drawers

{This is week one of Simple Mom's Project Simplify series and the mission is to declutter drawers & shelves.}


I had already organized my desk drawer here, but truth be told, this is what the drawer in the kitchen looked like after I had finished the desk.


While I was intentional about what I chose to put in the new desk drawer, I also sort of abandoned this drawer and all the stuff that was still inside. The reason was that I didn't have a good idea of what was going to end up in here. But to make more room in here

I moved the serving pieces here

And the napkins, placemats, etc. can now live here.

I used to call this area my "eyesore"--I was trying to make it function as a home office/kids' arts & crafts zone. Now it's just a coffee station.



 


And because it's small things like this that keep me happy with our home, I am linking up to Thrifty Decor Chick's It's the Little Things party.
