4 Weeks to a More Organized Home {Simplified}: Day 14 Update

If you missed the Day 14 assignment, you can read it here.

I have a confession to make: I completely forgot to post this last night! But I do sort of have a legitimate excuse… even though I know I’ve talked about not making excuses, so I really should be making one. 🙂

I flew to Little Rock, Arkansas yesterday to do some radio interview segments with FamilyLife. While there I also got to hang out with one of my favorite people and authors (Tricia Goyer), spend some time picking the brains of the Economides (known as “America’s Cheapest Family” — we did joint radio recordings together on the topic of saving money), and meet with some other wonderful folks from FamilyLife.

I also have the opportunity to get to meet and do a Q&A with Tricia’s Teen Moms group last night. What an amazing group of young women! I cannot imagine the hardships and difficulties on their plates and was so inspired by their questions and their sincere desire to do the best they can do with their money while juggling finishing high school and raising a baby as a single mom.

Needless to say, it was a busy day yesterday… and I didn’t get to my hotel room until after 11 p.m. After I called Jesse and we chatted about the day, I fell asleep! And it wasn’t until this morning that I remembered, “Oh yeah, I was supposed to put up that 4 Weeks Update post last night!” Oops.

Anyway, thanks for your patience and understanding. 🙂 So, without further ado, here’s my utensil drawer clean-out.

By the way, aren’t you all so proud of me for taking your advice and getting some drawer organizers? 😉

Those organizers have made my drawer organization a breeze (see how my utensil drawer used to look without them here). Thank you all; you’re brilliant!

How did you do on Day 14? I’d love to have you share your progress and success with us so we can be inspired. Either post a link to your blog post below or leave a comment with your update.

    Crystal, I need those drawer organizers. Where did you find them? Don’t say Target, we don’t have one, only a Walmart. I know….

  • Shauna says:

    I have the same question…Where did you get them? I was just thinking this morning as I was unloading the dishwasher how much I hate my utensil drawer.

  • Kris says:

    I wish our utensil drawer was that big! I only have one drawer that size, for cutlery. The utensil drawer is about a third that size.

  • Shelly says:

    What an exciting day you had yesterday.

    I have most of my utensils in a crock on the counter so I organized my drawer with all my measuring cups and spoons. I think my utensil drawer was messier than my junk drawer. 🙂

  • Jean says:

    I’m going to have to be on the lookout for some drawer organizers now. I am impressed with the difference they made in your drawer!

  • Carole says:

    I’m a fan of the Economides so I think it would be nice to meet them. I understand one of their daughters is getting married so they will probably soon be telling how to have an economical wedding.
