My favorite blog at the moment is iheart organizing. She has the best ideas and her house is super cute. I thought I was neat and organized, but this mom takes it to a whole other level! It's fantastic! Well, it got me thinking about all the things that I need to organize but just haven't gotten around to doing it. So I started with a couple of small things and wanted to share.
First, I decided I wanted to organize my freezer. I saw what Jen did at iheart organizing which you can find here and decided to try something similar. My fridge/freezer is a tiny little thing that most apartments put into their units. My freezer did not have a shelf in it so I ended up buying a wire shelf for a closet and sticking it inside. It fit perfectly. Then I found some small white baskets, in which I placed veggies, breakfast items and meats. Everything fits so nice and neat now and I can actually find things and pull them out without everything falling out and on top of me. It's awesome! I got the wire shelf and white baskets from Target. The baskets were 2.99 and the wire shelf was around 10. So, all in all, not too shabby!
Next, I tackled the junk drawer in my kitchen. I forgot to take a before shot on this one and the freezer (sorry!). But, I'm sure you all have a junk drawer and if you were anything like me, it was super junky! It was a big ol' mess! Well, while I was searching for my freezer baskets, I happened across these little white trays that snap together in any configuration you desire. So I snatched them up and viola! My new clean, organized drawer. Before I started, I could barely open this drawer, but now, it slides right open! AND, I didn't throw anything away!
My next project is going to be Legos. This is a pic of the boys separating the little bricks by color. We still have a giant bucket to go through and separate, but at least we've started! I still haven't figured out how to organize these guys yet. We don't have a ton of space in our apartment, so I'm brainstorming at the moment.
