This week I attacked the snack cabinet. In the process I actually attacked 3 cabinets in my kitchen re-organizing the stuff I took out of the snack cabinet, but I will just tell you about those quickly.
We don't have a pantry (yet...it is on the project list) so everything I have needs to be stored in the kitchen cabinets. This leads to jam packed cabinets most of the time and lack of space for some items, but it is working for the moment. I have one cabinet dedicated to snack type items. Bulk type items were semi-organized on the bottom shelf in some great containers I got from having a Tupperware party a few years back. The problem was the middle shelf mostly. It was always a mess and very hard to find anything. This led to stale snacks and buying duplicate items because Ididn't see it in the cabinet.
Snack cabinet after (purged and organized):
The snack cabinet housed hot cocoa making stuff (like chocolate syrup, cocoa packets, etc.) but the marshmallows were in a different cabinet becasue they never fit. I consolidated everything into a new cabinet along with a bin that houses dried fruits, raisings and nuts to add to oatmeal.
I have a long way to go to make my kitchen function efficiently but I have a great start already!
Next week I plan on starting to tackle the office/craft room...scary! Stay tuned.
