I normally call this area our butler’s pantry since it’s right next to our breakfast room and holds a bunch of our dishes. But since I really don’t have many entertaining supplies, the desk and cabinet area below is basically a breeding ground for junk drawers.
So over the weekend I finally had enough and decided to organize this mess. I found a bunch of little plastic trays at Dollar General and spent $8 total. Yep, $8 for some sanity. That basically totaled out to 24 different sized trays in various colors. Who knew organization could be so cheap?
In the far left drawer I put most of our misc. items like cords, chargers, batteries, playing cards, etc.
Let me talk for a quick moment about this bill organizer because it’s life-changing. I scooped it up from Dollar General for only $2.55. It’s broken up into months with a chart where you can write down your bills or expenses.
To the right of the middle drawer I have two medium baskets to keep my Command Brand hooks and wall hangers. Yeah, kinda weird to have an entire drawer dedicated to this. I get that. But I seriously had no idea I had so many until I cleaned out all of these junk drawers.
So all of this organization took place on Saturday, but yesterday we started on the backsplash in the butler’s pantry. We already finished the backsplash in the rest of the kitchen as seen here back in October. We didn’t have time to grout it since the mortar had to dry for 24 hours, so I’ll share the finished space with you guys soon. I think I’m also going to paint the back of the glass front cabinets…maybe.
Stay tuned and see what I decide!
