|Our kitchen drawer that needs to be decluttered.|
Today I did the first drawer: the drawer to the left of the refrigerator. As you can imagine I found things that simply needed to be discarded and others that belong somewhere else---not in this drawer.
Here are two before photos:

Here's everything that came out of the drawer.

These are things that belong somewhere else, but not here. Goody bags, can opener, Scotch tape, drinking straws, post ems, Ricola, mini whisk, owner's guides to various kitchen appliances.

Here's the drawer organized. Now doesn't that look nice? The cake rounds and doilies belong here, but organized. Party picks and skewers, shopping list tablets, hand held magnifier (if I need to read the ingredients on a product or read a recipe from the newspaper), and my kitchen scales.

Some things I definitely use a lot are in this drawer.
|Salter digital kitchen scale.|
Our digital glass kitchen scale by Salter. It is so easy to use and so accurate. If you need a reliable kitchen scale I recommend this one. I've found that for many recipes, baked goods for example, it is more accurate to weigh the ingredients than to measure them in measuring cups.
I like to have party picks and two sizes of bamboo skewers on hand. I especially like the bamboo skewers for making meat or fruit kabobs.
One drawer down and ten to go, but I have ten more days. Stay tuned.
