Back at the old house we had a drawer just for knives. It was a perk we enjoyed. At the new house we wanted to create a knife drawer. We soon learned that drawers come in many sizes having both lengths and widths.
The picture above is one of our accomplishments. After disappointing visits to the local stores, we went to Amazon.com and found the almost perfect fit. It was only one inch too wide. The Wusthof In Drawer Knife Block is made in such a way that Steve was able to cut off an inch and then it was perfect. Yay!
Another area where size matters is books. We learned this when we were packing books to move to Vegas. Books come in all kinds of sizes. That makes packing tricky.
Although we gave tons of books away before we moved, we still have more than enough. I say this because size matters again as we place the books on shelves. We don’t have an abundance of shelving space so every inch counts. We still love books, but our little house doesn’t afford us the pleasure of having too many.
Our new neighbors say we have several good libraries in the area. We are also blessed to have Kindle.
Do you still have lots of books in your house?
