Damn Martha! (Plus my Daily Drawer Project)

Wednesday, March 09, 2011


I say "Damn Martha" with the utmost respect. I mean, really? Who has drawers like this? Well, Martha does. But who else? Certainly not me. And no matter how hard I try, I will NEVER have drawers like this. I spotted these photos over on Little Green Notebook yesterday and haven't stopped dreaming about them since. Did you see even her P-touch has a label? Love that!

Just for fun, let's look at the difference between Martha's baking drawer and mine.

Clearly Martha's

Clearly mine, so sad!

Needless to say, I need some organization help. I'm introducing the Daily Drawer Project. It's overwhelming to think about tackling all of my drawers at once, so I'm going to organize one drawer per day. Some might take take 5 minutes, some might take half an hour and eventually I'll get through them all. They will never look like Martha's (and I'm okay with that) but at least they will look better than they do right now.  Here is some more drawer eye candy via Martha. 


Seriously, band aids in jadeite bowls? 



 Pretty please, can I have this kitchen? I've been a good girl, I promise!

So, does anyone want to join me and have their own daily drawer project??? I'll keep you posted on how mine goes.

Damn, Martha (in a good way) is right! As one with an affinity for organized drawers, I could look at her drawer pictures all day with a smile on my face. Hooray for organized drawers! Good luck with your project. Just keep chanting, "Martha. Martha. Martha" in your head as you work... ;)

I'll join you in your project, just as long as I don't have to send photos of the afters...
