Day 1 of the 21 Day Organizing Challenge.

Challenge Completed! Whew!

Today's challenge was to clean out a junk drawer. I am terrified of junk drawers because things go in there and they multiply and make plans to take over the world. True story.

I chose to do 3 drawers because they were rather small and they were all in the same piece of furniture so it just felt wrong to grab just one.

Okay, so these were the drawers I instantly thought of when I read today's homework. I literally could not cram any more crap into them...believe me, I tried!

I dumped all three drawers out and then spread everything out.
I was shocked at the stuff I found in there:
17 Batteries
2 Light bulbs
1 Egg Dying Kit
23 Keys(most a mystery)
4 Hand Sanitizers
1 Pocket Tissues
3 Hair ties
1 Barrette
4 Guitar Picks
2 boxes of Snaps
1 Jeans Button
and so many other random things!

Do you see the date on this???
(Said like Chandler from FRIENDS)

#1. Christmas paper from LAST YEAR.
#2. Invitation to a school carnival from 2008. Yep, that's right. 2008.

Here are my neat and tidy drawers!

#1. Handheld Video Games and Chargers
#2. Flashlights, Binoculars(you never know when you will need these), hand sanitizers, tissues and lint roller.
#3. Phone manual, chargers and bowl of keys.

YAY! This feels so gooooooood!
Wanna play?

I'm following the challenge, but not blogging about it, since I don't think I will have to time to see the whole project through, but anyway, I too was shocked at what I found in my drawer - and mine is tiny!!!
