It’s Friday already?
I have a tidbit for you but it’s so minor that it will most likely offer little inspiration to start your weekend. Hubs and I deep cleaned the kitchen last weekend (which we’ve NEVER DONE SINCE MOVING INTO THIS HOUSE OVER A YEAR AND A HALF AGO) and I took the opportunity to make some changes to how we “organize” keys, pens, sunglasses, etc. You know, the stuff that floats around on the counter for forever and always? Drives me mad. Then, sometime in May, my mail key disappeared and that mishap cost me a couple trips to the post office and forty bucks for a new lock. I’m sure it got swallowed into the chaos with other items I’m missing and just don’t know it yet. So (drumroll) I cleaned out a cupboard to corral the crazy. Here is the “After”.
Those cabinets are especially gross on the inside, eh? I was waiting for a “prettier” solution but this kitchen is far away from pretty at the moment. We needed something that works instead! I was hoarding glass jars (for this project) which I pruned down so they could share the shelf with our salad spinner. The middle shelf has my breastfeeding and bottle supplies. I carved out a little corner on the bottom shelf for pens, keys, and sunglasses next to our family of vitamins. I had been saving those cute tea tins and figured we might as well use them to hold crap. So, there you have it. My big reveal.
You can slow clap if you want to.
Although far from blog worthy, our quality of life just increased substantially. Our counters are clear! I know where to find things. I’m seriously so much happier.
In other news, I’m hosting a garage sale today and tomorrow. I’m crossing my fingers that with the for-sale items out of here, we can start to make some sense of our garage. It’s nice and spacious but you wouldn’t know it with the way everything is crammed in there. Wish me luck!
