Disaster, right? Last week I finally pulled everything out, sorted through discards and keepers – would you believe I had frayed bathing suits in there that had been with me since college?? – and neatly folded everything I was keeping. I found three shoeboxes I had on hand that were all about the same height and fit well in the drawer. After filling them with my bathing suits I popped them back in the drawer and made two folded piles of tunics and skirts I wear over the suits to and from the beach or pool and stepped back to admire my handiwork.
A neat, organized drawer (or any space, for that matter) makes me so ridiculously, irrationally happy, I have no idea why it took me so long to do this.
And to make it even better, this little purge-and-tidy project cost me absolutely nothing because I used shoeboxes I already had. A free, quick, high-impact, no-mess project – well, I think that’s a pretty ideal group of adjectives.
