Blessing #105 - A {not so junky} junk drawer

Although I'm not the most organized person in the world, I've really been trying to make life more organized.

When we moved, I worked to make my kitchen cabinets efficient and organized. Most of my cabinets have stayed organized and are working for me, but there's one drawer that strugglin'...the junk drawer.

Don't judge! I told you I wasn't organized. (That creepy hand reaching in is Brandon's) A few weeks ago, I found these little tubs at the Dollar Tree.  I couldn't resist the 4-pack for $1. 

I set out to organize the junk drawer by emptying it and then making families of items.  There were a few items that I found a home for somewhere else.  I made labels out of vinyl and this is what my junk drawer looks like now...

Isn't it beautiful!?! Do you notice anything odd though.  I'll give you a minute to find it. 

I'm waiting.

Do you see it?
Who has that many sharpies!?!  And not mult-colored sharpies.  They are almost all black sharpies.

I could not figure out how we got that many sharpies.  I only remember buying sharpies maybe 2 times in the past several years.   I asked Shad about it, and he confessed that he has gotten sharpies for several projects.  Yes, my husband is a sharpie hoarder. 

I'm loving my new organized drawers. The labels make it easy for Shad to know where everything goes.

I love my drawer so much I just had to share the love.

Today, I am giving away a 4 pack of the little tubs I used in the drawer. You can pick between blue or pink and you can pick the four words to label on the inside.

To win the 4-pack of labeled tubs all you have to do is leave a comment at the bottom of this post. For an extra entry, you can like calculating blessings on facebook. Just leave an extra comment telling me you did. I'll pick the winner on Wednesday.

I'm sharing this post with I Heart Organizing


  1. I found you on pinterest and I've had fun reading around your blog.   We can always use some help with organization at my house.  

  2. Ooh, Ooh! Enter me!! I love organizing too, but have fallen WAY behind!! :)

  3. Beautiful drawer.  Love you #3s#1

  4. The labels are really nice. It makes me wish that  my sermon books had those nice labels on them. If I win can I trade the trays for labels. I have some labels, so I would not need all of them. Maybe you can do that for my birthday, say from two years ago.  Did I mention how much I like those labels. #3

  5. I love the bins!!! So cute. I have a horrible junk drawer...and I like calculating blessings:)

  6. I would love to start organizing!! I really need some help! :)

  7. NO WAY!  Such a difference, I love how each spot is nicely labeled!  Makes my heart smile for you!!
