"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Works For Me Wednesday and Giveaway: Junk Drawer


The worst, most disorganized drawer in the house is probably my kitchen "baking drawer." It somehow always ends up a mess:


Then, I have to waste precious baking time searching through a big pile of utensils. I once hurt myself trying to force a stuck utensil out of there. So when Rubbermaid's organizing blogger asked me if I'd like to receive their new Drawer Organizer 6 piece set, I quickly jumped at the opportunity!

One really neat thing about this set, is that they are all separate pieces of different sizes, but they can interlock with each other so they stay together! I actually used 4 of the pieces in one drawer and two in another. What a perfect fit!

These could be used in any drawer... make up, toys, kitchen and more. They come in different sizes so they're all good for different things (one for utensils, one for twisty ties, etc). Plus, they have a no slip feet on the bottom that keep them from sliding around in the drawer when you open it.


Oh my, what a difference these made!! Now, all my measuring cups, measuring spoons, and odds and ends are all grouped together for easy finding and using! These little organizing containers certainly worked for me! Rubbermaid also provided some tips on organizing the junk drawer and a $1/1 coupon for any Rubbermaid Kitchen Organization Product.

Because these worked so well, I'm very pleased to be able to give a set away to one of my readers!! To enter the giveaway you can do any of the following, leaving a separate comment for each:
  1. Leave me a comment telling me your worst drawer in the house!
  2. Blog about this giveaway and leave me the link.
  3. Become a follower or tell me if you already do (left side of the blog)!
  4. Become a subscriber or tell me if you already do (left side)!
  5. Follow me on twitter or tell me if you already do!
  6. Become a fan of the Christian Frugal Mama Facebook page or let me know if you already are!
That's 6 chances to win! Sorry, but they can only ship to the USA or Canada. The giveaway is open from now until Friday February 26th at 11PM EST when I will randomly pick a winner. I will email the winner (so make sure you leave a way for me to email you!) and the winner will have 48 hours to respond. If they don't, I will pick a new winner. Good luck!!

My worst drawer is the junk drawer in the kitchen. I try to clean it out and it just gets cluttered again.

Hi, Janeen!
Hey! I can truthfully say that the exact two drawers that were your messiest were MY messiest in the exact same house! Now I have transferred the contents of those drawers to a bigger drawer at my new house, and now IT'S the messiest drawer in my house! Please draw my name so I get a set of those dividers! I am unsure how to get my name on this entry--the first one went through anonymous! Carol M.

Hi, Janeen! I am already a subscriber--I have been getting your blog on e-mail for quite some time now. Did you know that it comes a day late when it's on e-mail? Please enter me again in the drawing for those dividers! Thanks! Carol M.

Oh dear lord, I have so many that need help! I think I can get past the junk drawer (because I go in it so rarely) but my drawer with measuring cups, graters, zesters, ice cream scoops, peelers, etc is the worst and I'm in and out of it all the time.

Well, I really do tend to keep the drawers pretty neat with organizers; but one that I can't seem to conquer is the one in the living room dresser with a hodge podge of weekly necessary items. Thanks for the chance to win!

The worst drawer in my house is my 'junk drawer' in the kitchen. It has phone directories, paper, pens, paper clips, business cards, restaurant take-out menus, broken toy pieces, and who knows what else.

too Blessed to Stress on February 17, 2010 at 3:49 PM said...

oh how fun! just found you from WFMW and I love a good giveaway -especially one to do with organizing. My worst drawer is the silverware drawer. There is just too much in there butno other drawer to put the extras... sigh.

worst drawer is the one with measuring spoons and cups just like your pics! But about 10times worse. LOL

My worst drawer is the one in the bathroom; brushes, ponytails, bobbi pins, etc.

Shannon on February 17, 2010 at 10:40 PM said...

My worst drawer has to be our bathroom drawer. It's not that deep, but seemingly has to hold a lot. I admit, it is mostly my 'junk', but it's the stuff I need! A drawer organizer set would really help! Also, we don't have a desk drawer, so the top of our desk is a mess! These organizers could help me keep my desk in line!

I think my worst drawer is in my hobby room - any of the drawers where I stash my beads and tools - these would come in handy.

Thank you.
