See what I'm talking about. This is my junk drawer. It's actually a pencil drawer with a little junk thrown in. Under the phone books are more pencils. And don't forget the markers and the occasional pen. See that big blue thing? That's a dry erase marker. I don't own a dry erase board.
And finally so you appreciate my pain. Here is my kitchen counter in all it's glory. The rest of the kitchen isn't to bad. But this is the pain in my side. Can't. Get. Clean. So I am pleading to the organization gods, Help me with my kitchen/ desk/ junk drawer. I need something nifty to put in my drawer to keep everything separated and in its place in the drawer. I've tried silverware containers but the spaces are too small. And they leave a big wasted space around the edges. I need something to feel the entire drawer. Does anyone know of the miracle product I'm thinking of? And I'm also looking for a little organization fairy dust and will power to go with it. Anyone?
Here's a conversation I had with my man a few days ago.
Me (from now on I will be referred to as Queen of Laundry): "Did you put the laundry basket in the hall so I would do the laundry?
John: "Yes, I'm just trying to help. There's just a lot of laundry that needs to be done."
Queen of Laundry: "Yes, I know this. I'm the one that does 2 loads a day."
John: "If that were true the basket wouldn't be overflowing."
Queen of Laundry: "If I didn't do 2 loads of laundry everyday you wouldn't be able to find the laundry basket."
John: "People around here are using too much laundry. Everyone should realize that clothes aren't always dirty when you take them off. And we use too many towels in this house. We should only have to do one load of towels a week. It's a waste of resources when......" (when my man uses the word resources I instantly start to hear blah blah blah)
Keep that conversation in mind as you look at this next photo.

Interesting. Notice the difference in quantity? I rest my case.
Truthfully I am very thankful for a man who helps with laundry, dishes, children, etc. He's the man!
