Clean Out that Weird Kitchen Drawer

by Tory
(Gin Gin, QLD, Australia)


Every kitchen has one. A drawer where all the weird tools and attachments go that you hardly ever use.

1. Empty the contents of that drawer into a box and leave the box out on the bench.

2. Put the drawer back - empty.

3. Over the next month, each time you use an item from the box wash it up and put it back in the drawer.

4. At the end of the month, anything left in the box can be given to the thrift shop or thrown out. You obviously don't need it!

FLN's note: What a terrific idea! I might give it longer than a month, but I love the idea of cleaning each item before you put it back!
