It’s day #8 of the 30-day organization challenge. Let me be honest. This day was tough for me. I had a very busy day starting at 5:30 a.m. and leaving with all 5 kids at 8:45 a.m. and not getting back until late afternoon, jumping right into dinner prep. Then I was so tired after dinner that I thought “how am I going to get today’s challenge done?”
Well, I said I am just going to start and lo and behold, it became a very refreshing, yet encouraging part of my day! It really does not take long to re-organize the drawers and get them back in order. I was able to organize half my kitchen drawers in no time and I was so, so happy! I even had time to have a kid-themed dance party, stories and giggles….. all after dinner and before bedtime.
So, I want to say this to encourage you – there’s just going to be a day that seems so daunting; today was mine. I wanted to throw in the towel for just today, promised myself I would at least get started and I finished instead!
Day #8 Challenge – Organize Half the Kitchen Drawers
Even though I was exhausted starting and not motivated at the beginning, I did snap before pictures and was happy to snap after pictures for you.
For the first half of the drawers I chose today, I have a series of drawers right on top of each other and they are the most used drawers. So I started with these.

Today’s challenge is now finished and it is AWESOME!! So glad I did it, even when I didn’t want to!
