Welcome to day eight of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing the utensil drawer.
Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead.
Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.
This task should not take long. If yours is like mine, we are constantly shifting the tools around. It is so easy for this drawer to become unorganized or too full. My older kids do chores, and one of their chores is to put away the clean dishes. With this being said of course things are not put the way we would do it and that’s ok. So, this is why this task is a good one. We can get it back in order. I have pulled all of the cooking utensils and gadgets out, went thru it all. I am into kitchen gadgets and at times something I buy might not work for me or I don’t like it, but instead of tossing it there and then I can at times for some reason hold onto it. Today is the day to let go of those. Get rid of those cooking utensils that are well used and you see it’s time to be replaced. If you don’t have a second of something that you use daily, keep it until you replace it. Make a note of what needs to be replaced. Also, be sure once they are replaced to toss them. My drawer organizer is from Costco and I have had it for many years. It came with the utensil organizer for your cutlery and this one for your cooking utensils. It works and is very durable.
Something I also did was added this cute tin to my stove top to hold my most used utensils. It looks cute and is so convenient. This tin is from Dollarama, it came with a wood lid and I just took it off and thought it was cute just like this. What do you think about it?
