Those are my embarrassing, inefficient kitchen utensil drawers. I had attempted to organize them when we first moved in, using some organizers that were obviously not a good fit. After I got sick of digging around every time I
My second project was something that I had been planning to do for a long time, and I just finally made it happen. The space under my kitchen sink is limited, as it sits in the corner (see the whole kitchen tour). All of our cleaning supplies are in a tub, but I often found myself digging in the tub to find small items like the scrub brush and my rubber gloves. Not anymore:
I just used command strips to hang a hook and a clothespin. I love that both items are always visible and that the command strips won't damage the cabinet door.

Not pretty. I purchased dvd sleeves and cheap boxes from IKEA. Then I made labels out of card stock, sharpies and washi tape.
Now the cabinet looks like this:
I left the tv shows and games in their cases, but every other dvd fit into the box with room to spare. Our home is small and space is limited, so this really is a game-changer.
So nice to get these things crossed off the list! What organizational projects have you been up to lately?
