Today's task is one that I've been putting off for a while so now that it's a challenge I will actually have to get it done.
It's time to clean out the kitchen junk drawers.
Ooo, I think I just shuddered a little bit! I'm sure you are like me and you have one or 2 (or more!) drawers in your kitchen where everything seems to get thrown. And it's all little junky things that pile up after time. Today we are going to get that all cleaned out!
There's nothing wrong with having a "junk drawer" in the kitchen, but a full-of-everything-and-anything drawer isn't doing you any good. I know I've seen those little plastic dividers you can get to better organize drawers...something like that might help! What actually needs to stay in the kitchen junk drawers? Little things like tape, nails, pens....things you use often while you are in the kitchen area.
To help you with cleaning out this drawer(s!) you might want to think about it as your kitchen handy-things station instead of a "junk drawer" (which just sounds like an invitation to throw whatever in!) Maybe think of it as your quick fix-it station. A place where you keep those little things you need, that aren't really kitchen related.
