Congratulations to our contest winner!

Dread… more like avoid. Why? I suppose it’s more than just the task I dread. I don’t suppose anyone really ‘enjoys’ this task, unless they are completely fanatical about being organized.
It wasn’t until I read your question that I realized why i dreaded and avoided cleaning out the dreaded drawers:
For me, drawers have become something of a dirty little secret. An unseen hideaway for articles stashed in a frenzied pick-up; items pushed to the back of the drawer because they are just a tad too snug but too good to toss.
I must admit there is even more clutter here than what is simply lurking in the dresser drawers… it’s mental clutter that I don’t enjoy facing any more than the outgrown undies.
