Before and After, Kitchen Desk Drawer

My dear person who reads this blog, I’m about to show you my kitchen desk drawer. Yes, finally– after nine months of slowly getting rid of things — I’ve come to the point of noticing what’s inside my cabinets and drawers. It’s about time, as you shall see.

I fear that you may not like me after you see it.

But I’m going to show you anyway, because I want to give you hope for the messy areas of your own home.

Are you ready for this unsightly ‘before’ photo? I can assure you there’s been no airbrushing or photoshopping here. (Oh, and if you should happen to be a criminal type who wandered across this photo in cyberspace… every receipt here is from a closed account. Keep wandering. Or, better yet, give up your life of crime.)

Yes, it’s beyond bad. I know. And then there’s the neglected drawer organizer. Did it live inside a drawer? No, it did not.

Also bad. I know.

Almost everything in that drawer was trash. Garbage. Yes, I’ve been using prime real estate to store garbage. But not anymore! Looky! looky! looky!:

And it took fifteen minutes.

(I still need to add some shelf liner so things don’t slide around in there; and I might allow a few pens or other supplies to live there. But only if they behave.)

Stay tuned for more before-and-after events, coming soon!
