Hello everyone, just wanted to stop by and see how’s your weekend going? Also to post some photos of my little kitchen organization project. I really should have taken the “Before” photo, but it was way too messy, so I decided against embarrassing myself… The above photo is of the newly labeled cooking ingredient containers, I also moved the cooking utensils out of the drawers to make room for the measuring spoons and cups. The idea came from many organization blogs and magazines, apparently just by moving the large utensils out of the drawers, not only are they a lot more accessible, I won’t have to dig around for the tiny measuring spoons in the future. This thought makes me very happy!
I also moved some of the small appliances around, the rarely used ones were moved to cabinets to make space for cooking preparation. Here is a corner of the kitchen.
At the other side of the stove, I’ve set up a breakfast station for my little girl. Nothing fancy, just the breadbox, honey and peanut butter, also children’s gummy vitamin so she will remember to take them first thing in the morning.
I also cleaned out all the old spices and seasoning from the above cabinet. Put the various rice into air tight containers on the bottom cabinet. Can you believe there were 3 big trash bags I had to throw out? It’s sad to be so wasteful, but most of the spices were bought from years ago when my hubby was the one cooking, and they have seen much better days! Here is a photo of the top cabinet:
Since I am not much of a baker, so those type of goodies go on the taller shelf. The bottom shelf pull out drawers are seasonings I use quite a bit, the black box contains ingredients I use occasionally, but by giving them an easy accessible place, maybe I will be more inspired to try more exotic recipes…
Do you love your kitchen as much as I do now? Can’t wait for Monday to come around so I can put my newly organized kitchen to use!
