Often on Friday night I find myself with a huge burst of domestic energy. That’s one of the reasons I do my weekly planning sessions on Friday night – I know I have the whole weekend in front of me, fresh with possibilities and fun things to do around the house. Early last week I decided that I was tired of the way my kitchen counter looked. I’ve had the same knife block and utensil holder crowding my counter for over six years, and I wanted a change.
I decided to ditch the knife block, which meant I needed to make room for the knives in my utensil drawers. I organized those several years ago and the system was still working well, but this project required some rearranging. I ran over to Dollar General and picked up three sets of organizing bins (they were $.90 each!) and got started.
Of course I can’t find a good picture of my counter the way it was all those years (probably because it was ugly and I didn’t want to photograph it!).
In less than 30 minutes I had clear counters and beautifully organized drawers! I’ll take you through the process in my video below – you’ll see that I had a few embarrassing discoveries along the way. LOL.
Here’s the finished product – I love walking into the kitchen and seeing this beautiful sight!
Is there a spot in your house that drives you crazy but you haven’t ever changed? The next time you have a free Friday night, crank up the music and have an organizing party! 🙂
