Just DO It, Already

This was a nice, quick project that I've been meaning to work on for ages now. I know this isn't a bad "before", but it was getting hard to find things in this drawer. We call it the phone book drawer, but I decided to toss the phone book into recycling. We never use it anymore; if we need a phone number, we look it up on the internet.

The pink flowered book holds our phone numbers for friends and family. Yes, I still use a paper phone book for that. :-)

I sorted through the pens, and bought two small plastic containers to corral everything. I put scissors in the drawer because I always seem to need them. I also put a small pencil sharpener in there, since Handy Boy always seems to need one when working on his homework.

I had been meaning to organize this drawer, but I kept forgetting to buy the organizers!

Is there a small project that you have been meaning to do that would make a difference in how you function? Let's stop procrastinating and just do it!

I love an organized drawer and I love those little plastic containers. I should have invented them, I have so many. Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday.

Great job. Sometimes it's the little jobs that seem to take the longest to get to, LOL!

Doesn't it feel good to get it done-it's just hard to find time for some of these little areas!

I opened this link up because I was all 'who uses a phonebook anymore?!?' so I had to laugh when you said you'd tossed it! I also still have a paper book for our personal addresses since when syncing my iphone I managed to loose all my contacts THREE separate times so there's something to be said for a hard copy!

I know, I was thinking "WHY are we keeping this?!" I swear I can't remember the last time I looked up a phone # in a phone book! I think there is a site where you can check to "opt out" of getting them now. Need to look into that, as I think it's nearly time for them to deliver them! That's why I have a hard copy book for family numbers, I've had computer crashes before.
