Last year I cleaned out and organized my junk drawer and a couple of other drawers in my kitchen and wonders of wonders they are STILL clean and organized! So let's build on this terrific foundation, I say!!!! (please excuse all the exclamation marks - a girl has to do whatever it takes to psych herself up for a job like this)
I have once again been following the PROCESS for cleaning out and organizing. It really is a most amazing help. I stay focused and on-task when I work through each step.
As I walk you through all that I've done, you'll see pictures of the amazing transformation of my kitchen cupboards. Soooo, grab a cup of your favorite cuppa and get comfy and enjoy the show!
|I used items that were sitting around, like random organizers (this one became a plate rack). Only purchase for this project was new shelf liner|
|My "Special Pieces" Before (left) and After (right)|
|Coffee Mugs (can a girl have too many? um, ye-es!) Before (left) and After (right)|
|Under the Baking counter (Before, top. After, bottom)|
|Baking Pans - I just love the red/cream checks - makes me smile everytime I open up the doors!|
Next, Containerizing!!! (Love this part!) But with very little $$$ available for this project, I had to utilize containers I already had around and/or get creative. I consolidated as much as possible and assigned space for everything.
|Cracker/Cereal/Snack Cabinet (Before on left, After on right)|
|Spice/Coffee/Tea/Etc Cabinet - top photos show Before and After as you peek in the corner door. Bottom photos show before and after The Great Spice Purge and Reorganization. I keep most spice bottles on 2 lazy suzans, alphabetized (in general) with A-L on the left one and N-Z on the right one.|
Smile, relax and enjoy! That's easy when you look around at a job well done.
|What!? Could it be!? Empty Space!? Loving It!|
