Happiness is Pull-Out Drawers

Monday, July 27th, 2015

X-man and I hit up The Container Store last weekend – my first trip there since the move (I’m amazed it took so long!). We had our shopping list, measuring tape, and, of course, snacks! He was a trooper and even helped carry laundry hampers across the store.

The main room I worked on was the kitchen, and the first area of attack was the silverware drawer.  I don’t even need to explain why – just look at this picture… (more…)
