First up are the kitchen cabinets. They used to be pretty neat and organized, but over time the insides became dirty and cluttered. Also, as we accumulated various items, we would just shove them back in the cabinets when we were done using them.
Here are a couple of before pictures so you can have an idea of what I was dealing with:
This is just one set of several cabinets in the kitchen. My first instinct was to try to do all the kitchen organizing in one day, but I decided it would be a lot easier to just concentrate on one area at a time. The process went something like this:
- First, I took everything out of the cabinets.
- Then I cleaned the insides which is something that hadn't been done for awhile!
- After that, I figured out where I wanted things to go which sort of felt like a jig saw puzzle.
Here's what the newly neat and organized cabinets look like now:
The top shelf is where I put all the cookware we use, as well as bowls for food preparation and our salad spinner. Again, since we have limited storage space, covers are stored upside down.
The bottom part of this section of the cabinet is where all our tupperware and other accessories are stored. I also added a hook to the inside of the cabinet for our pot holders. Makes it SO much easier to grab them when needed!
The main things I wanted out of this organization project was to make everything fit, keep it all easily accessible, and easy to maintain. I think I accomplished these things (I hope!) and now I'm happy whenever I open up these cabinets!
