{Project Simplify} The kid's kitchen drawers

A good nights sleep and I've been able to tackle the kid's kitchen drawers. Isn't it amazing what you can achieve with a little bit of sleep? Kid's draws are particularly difficult to keep tidy because of all the bits and pieces but I've found what works in our family and that is to use bigger containers to store smaller items.

For today's job I simply emptied each draw and cleaned the bottom of it with some vanilla so that it was clean and smelling good too. I threw out random lids that were missing their bottoms and any other containers that were looking a little worse for wear.  It took me about 15 minutes to finish all the draws.

Drawer number one is home to sippy cups, zoku pop accessories and our small containers. We also have a few bento lunch pieces in here. (Excuse the photo - I'm still getting used to this new computer and can't seem to work the photos out).

 Drawer number two holds our plastic cups and plates. We love the Boon range as well as our little bowls from Ikea which we use on a daily basis for one thing or another.

Drawer number three holds some Tupperware and Sistema containers. When we are looking for containers to take to work with leftovers - this is the draw we go to. I used to have an abundance of different mismatched containers but I have since culled this drawer and now only keep a selection of each container. It's much easier to keep under control.

That's another lot of drawers cleaned and cleared out. I have one more set of drawers (cutlery, utensils, tea towels and miscellaneous) to do before I move onto the cupboards. Then, once the cupboards and drawers are done it is onto the pantry, fridge and freezer before we are out of the kitchen and onto another room. Small steps in this household because as we all know slow and steady wins the race!
