Last month, I began a utensil challenge in my home. I was tired of trying to pry open my kitchen drawers to see this...
So, I decided to do something about it. I started a 1-month utensil challenge on February 18th. I began by placing all of the utensils in two bags. One bag was for the utensils I was getting rid of and the other was for the items that were waiting to be used.
As I used a utensil, it went back into one of these two drawers. On March 18th, the utensils that were still remaining in the bag would go to the Goodwill...
After this fun month, I will be getting rid of the following utensils...
I am still in ahhh at how many "extra" utensils I had lying in my drawers. I mean, how many spatulas does one family need? Insane! No wonder I couldn't shut the drawers.
Now, I have to take out all the utensils again, organize them, place in my new acrylic trays, and place the utensils back in the drawers...
I purchased these OXO soft works acrylic utensil trays from TJMaxx for
How the trays look in the drawers.

Drawer #2 - After... This drawer is still a work in progress. It looks a lot better
than it did, though. I need more trays for this drawer. So, I had to use another one I had
in the house. Definitely going to purchase more acrylic trays. That white
tray is an eye-sore.

Before & After
This is definitely a work-in-progress type of project. I got rid of a lot this round, but I plan on purging and reorganizing even more. I will keep you posted!
