This cabinet held glasses, travel cups/mugs, and storage containers. First step was to move storage containers completely and sorting through travel cups. Anything without a lid was pitched immediately. Anything that wasn’t used regularly but in good condition was put into the donate basket. Mugs were moved to the second shelf and less frequently used travel cups and sport bottles were put on the top shelf. The picture is of a another cabinet (forgot the before pics – oops). The bottom shelf now contains Abby’s “big girl” cups – mismatched or otherwise gross sippy cups were tossed. The second shelf is now organized and matching storage containers and top shelf is my trusty crock pot.
The first picture is all of the crap that was in the cabinets above the stove that have all of my baking supplies. I emptied everything out. After discarding anything that was expired (which was more items than I care to admit), I organized everything in baskets which makes everything so much easier. I baked donuts this morning for breakfast and finding the ingredients I needed was twice as quick and easy. Love the new layout!
We don’t have a huge kitchen and cabinet space is at a minimum so this weeks task was really helpful in getting everything not only clean and organized but more accessible. Here is a full shot of the kitchen (when I had the countertops cleared):
Now that it is more organized, the things on our kitchen to-do list include touching up cabinet paint, touching up countertops, and replacing the horrendous fluorescent light fixture. Anyone have any recommendations on kitchen lighting?
Next on the to-do list – the garage!
