One of our projects recently was to add some shelving to the laundry hall closet.
Have you ever reached a point of feeling pulled in too many directions. Where there is so much to do, but you can’t quite recall what though.
It doesn’t help that I have not solidified a way to deal with my impromptu notes. I jot items down on sticky notes and I stuff them in my bag to bring home with the intent to revisit that evening.
Yesterday, I took the time to lay out all my cookie cutters and organize them by type. I had been given a large tin filled with them from my grandma.
Continuing from my post about how I organize my spices I decided to share a bit more about my kitchen organization. In past apartments, I have had a free standing baking sheet holder and kept in on top of my fridge. I kept it there because that has been the only space that would allow for my long baking sheets and be out of the way yet accessible. So I was very pleased to see that above the built in microwave and oven there were already some dividers in place.
Spices, a key ingredient that makes the difference. The element that can make a dish “Mom’s” or “Grandma’s” home cooked meal from any other similar dish you come across. When I am in the kitchen I want my spices to be easily accessible and not have to hunt around to find that I need.
I have heard and agree with the generalization that most people gravitate and gather in the kitchen of a home. With this in mind and the already accumulated clutter in the kitchen I decided to start there with my unpacking endeavor.
The starting of this blog coincides with a big life event, buying our first home! As many may know the kitchen is a key area. I am so excited to have additional space to roll out cookie dough!
