With that in mind I set about to bring order to the kitchen, and here's how it happened.
First I went to Meier-- a great mid-western alternative to Wal-Mart which I LOVE. I bought several things to aid me in my quest:
Brilliant. The tupperware cabinet was a particular problem. Not anymore! behold!
And the whole cabinet now looks like this:
Don't you want to look for something in there, and then find it? You could! It would be easy!
Unfortunately I forgot to take a Before picture of this one, so you'll have to imagine that it looked something like this:
Another one of the cabinets that needed a little order-- Blender, pre-natal vitamins, vacuum attachment, coffee and hand sanitizer all in one place. The process went like this. Remove all contents:
Then line with contact paper.
Then organize and make this happen:
Yup. That just happened. A whole cabinet devoted almost exclusively to our three Magic Bullets (I cannot endorse this product enough)
I am overwhelmed with glee every time I open a cabinet door.
Also noteworthy are the Saran Wrap holder which I installed on the pantry door (Drake installed after watching me struggle) AND the junk drawer organizer. The junk drawer now has a place for a tape measure, scissors, pens and pencils, sparklers, glue, screws, phone chargers-- the list goes on.
I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the result. And the fact that this little guy kept me company in his jumparoo while I worked?
