The Ugly Drawers and Hot-Spot- Project Simplify Week 3

For the month of March I am linking up with Simple Mom to clean/declutter/organize different areas in my home. 


Week Three is Drawers and Counter tops. 


Week Three


Drawers
 Having a small kitchen and not too much space definitely makes you use the space you have more wisely. While going through my drawers this week, I decide what was beneficial to have in the drawers and kitchen and what was not. My silverware drawer needed a little more space so I moved it. Unfortunately my 2 year old can still get to it and take out forks and spoons( his favorite items to dig in the dirt outside).

I had an empty drawer in the end, so I decided to put my breakfast bars in that one and save the space that the boxes were taking up in the cabinets. Simplify Tip of the Day!


Hot-Spot
Magazines, Books, Food, Toys, Stickiness. This is what I came across on the side table next to my couch.   The number one hotspot in my home it seems. I reorganized the magazines and books, disposed of any food and trash, and of course cleaned up the stickiness left from a certain toddler who loves to "clean" up his own messes. I love my little helper!

Looking better already! I love to Simplify every once and awhile. It is refreshing and my house is looking a little more organized each week!


What are the hotspots in your home? Any tips to how you keep them non-cluttered?
