This home was built by her daughter Rose as a gift after she returned home from extensive travel abroad in 1928.The Little House Series was my absolute favorite books to read as a child and I was lucky enough to travel here a few year ago and see her homes and property on Rocky Ridge Farm, Mansfield, Missouri)
Welcome to day five of the 31 Day Clutter Crusade.
Today we are de-cluttering our flatware and giving the drawer a good cleaning.
If your flatware drawer is overflowing and you can’t seem to close it shut without having a bit of a toddler tantrum then today will be a big help for you. If you have the cleaning and most organized drawer on the block then go make a cup of tea because you are the luckiest mom of the day.

Three Easy Steps to an Organized Flatware Drawer
1. Take all items out.
2. Decide what to keep, donate or toss. – Remember, if you have 75 forks… that might be too many forks. You can store a few in a box for special events but having too many will discourage anyone trying to help you put all those forks away. Only keep what you need, nearby and handy in your kitchen drawers.
3. Give drawer a good cleaning and return items grouping like items together.
Ta Da! You are totally finished organizing and cleaning the flatware drawer.
The entire clutter challenge for the flatware should only take about 5 minutes maybe 10. I would love to see your results on Facebook of you can send them in an email format to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can add it to a victory post!
