Welcome to day #9 of the 30-day organization challenge. I feel like I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel! Our kitchens are just about organized. A couple of more days and we can move on with the rest of the house with a nicely organized kitchen behind us!
Today’s challenge is the second half of yesterday’s challenge.
Day #9 Challenge – Organize the Second Half the Kitchen Drawers
With the second half, I chose to deal with the dreaded junk drawer in this batch! I also have a misc. kitchen supplies drawer. Both can get out of hand pretty easily.
Again, I will just take you around my kitchen! I did 5 drawers today, unlike 3 yesterday, however, a couple were literally a minute or two, so quite simple.

Miscellaneous Kitchen Stuff Drawer Before
I am happy to accept suggestions on this one! It is a wide, flat, weird drawer. I moved the teas to the top cupboard from a couple of days ago, then I have three gallon ziplocs – one for lose tea bags, hot chocolates, etc., another for spice packets, seasoning packets, etc., and a third for baking chocolates, pieces, etc. I also then have bread baggies, cheese cloth and other miscellaneous, random items.
Miscellaneous Kitchen Stuff Drawer After – not super totally happy with it, but it’s at least better! I might try to find some more permanent solutions for this drawer later.
Finally, the grand daddy drawer of them all…. the dreaded JUNK DRAWER before!
And the beautiful organized finish to this crazy drawer! I love seeing the after’s on junk drawers. It makes such a huge difference!
Now guess what? There are only two more spots left in the kitchen the rest of this work week and then we are ready to move on to another area! I can’t wait to get out of the kitchen, but so happy to see the drawers and cupboards again!
