Oh boy…this was not going to be fun! My hubby has been after me to clean out that junk drawer for weeks now.
First, I started off by tackling the mirrors and glass doors. I had already cleaned the bathrooms this morning, so the mirrors in those rooms were done. That left 2 glass doors and 5 more mirrors to go. (We must like to look at ourselves a lot…that’s quite a few mirrors!)
This glass door above is the one in our basement. It seems to get very dirty rather quickly, as it is so close the yard. I went through 4 paper towels on the outside of the door…they were covered in dirt, pollen and bug remains. Ick!
Next, I worked on the 2 drawers in the kitchen. After emptying them out, I found some crumbs inside that needed to be wiped out. As my friend Shell at Frugal Family Home remarked the other day while we were cleaning out our silverware drawers, how crumbs get into drawers where you only put clean utensils is a mystery!
I was able to toss out a few old measuring spoons that were warped in the dishwasher, as well as 2 of the 5 bottle openers that we had. Most of them were gifts, which I hated to get rid of, but we don’t need 5 of them, especially when we hardly use them.
The junk drawer was a lot easier than I had anticipated. I found a lot of odds and ends that had just been thrown in the drawer for lack of a better place to put them. I gathered everything together for my husband to see before I threw it out…I didn’t want to accidentally throw away some important battery cord. When he saw the drawer, he said, “Holy cow!” I think he was impressed that he could finally get the drawer open 😉
As usual, I’m looking forward to tackling another project tomorrow 🙂
