So, we have a "junk" drawer in our kitchen under our coffee station that was a mess. I took everything out and purged and organized. I used a desk organizer from The Container Store to keep things organized and tidy for as long as we can. I say that because I feel like even after we organize, things get crazy a month later.
From William-Sonoma, we bought organizers for our silverware and for our cooking utensils.
I try and keep as little stuff off of our counters as possible. I get very flustered with clutter, so we try and keep everything put away in their place. All utensils are from William-Sonoma including our silverware (bought on clearance at the William-Sonoma Outlet)
Ahhh, our favorite drawer. The wine storage. This is another organizer from William-Sonoma.
Jon has a beer opener made from the floors of the Boston Garden. Major Celtics fans up in this piece.
Below the wine drawer is a drawer I use for when company is over. The brown tea pot was from my Mom and its for cream. The 3-bowl dish is from Crate and Barrel for nuts, chips, M&M's or whatever haha. The Gravy bowl should be in storage but we used it recently for Syrup.
Um....here is my drawer....cookbooks, pinecones, napkins, a cheese platter...so organized.
Ahhh, much better. And YES I have Teresa Giudice's cookbook. She may be insane, but there's a ton of yummy recipes in that book.
On our main island we have things we use everyday.
I always keep tupperware organized since I hate when it is a HOT MESS and you have two square bottoms and a circle top. No good.
This drawer...not so much.
Much better :-)
That pancake pen from William-Sonoma is a LIFE SAVER and really helps keep the pancakes even and less of a mess on your counters. I recommend that bad boy.
I walked into my kitchen this morning and everything was in its place. Such a good feeling!
