52 Weeks of Organizing

Laura at "I'm an Organizing Junkie" has started a 52 Weeks of Organizing challenge. Since getting organized is part of my 101 list and something I feel I am ALWAYS working on I decided to join in. 

The idea is to have 52 small projects you can do each week of 2011 to help get organized. Goal setting is more successful if you break your goals down into smaller and manageable steps. Organize the cutlery drawer is a small step to having an organized kitchen and feels a whole lot more obtainable than "organize entire kitchen by Saturday"!

For the first week Laura has some questions to answer so here we go!

1.  Do you have your list written? (if you missed it, you can find the pdf here)
I'm working on the list as I want to try and align it with my 101 list it's going to take me a while to figure out!
2.  What is the first thing on it that you hope to accomplish this week?
I am going to organize my reusable containers.
3.  How are you going to make it happen?
I plan to sort the containers into all the different brands/types I have, get rid of extra lids/containers, get larger containers to group them into and for easier access from the cupboard. Most of all I'm going to KEEP them organized afterwards!

This photo is extremely embarrassing but it is the current state of the back cupboard in my kitchen. I got a little ambitious and decided to reorganize it entirely yet clearly did not finish! So at the moment there are reusable containers all over the cupboard and probably other places in the kitchen as well. 

After pictures are coming once I can get to the Dollar Store to get some containers! I'm really hoping the roads are better tonight.

*Edit* you can see the completed project here!
