I constantly feel like my kitchen is a disorganized mess, even though the kitchen I have now is three times as big as what I had before. So, I decided I needed to start looking at the way I'm utilizing my cabinets & see if there are changes that need to be made.
This is the cabinet I stored my spices in (I had already pulled a ton of stuff out before I had the "aha moment" to photograph the before & after)...
This is all the stuff I pulled out of that cabinet before the picture was taken!
This is the cabinet right next to it, and, immediately right of the stove. I had just put baking dishes & measuring cups in it before. It looked fine, right?
After thinking about it awhile, I decided to move all the spices over to the cabinet closer to the stove, and, WOW - it works much better. I picked up a stair stepped shelf to help organize the spices, and, some $1 plastic containers to place my spice packets in. Doesn't this look MUCH better?!
In the corner, lazy susan cabinet I placed my measuring cups, mixer attachments & some mixing bowls - since that is the area I bake in.
I have many, many more cabinets to move on too. My goal is to get this all completed before I start refinishing the cabinets in May. Stay tuned :)
