I feel like I can’t get very much done in the house organizing department, especially since my project list is so long. But I figured that if I tackle one small job a week I’ll slowly but surely get my job list complete.
Before the holidays I started organizing my kitchen cabinets, particularly the mini pantry cabinet that I blogged about here. Now that holidays are over, I have been able to continue with the cabinet over the sink where we keep canned goods and baking items. I had a few blue plastic containers but instead of being organizers they were just catch-alls for anything and everything.
My spices were particularly a headache since I had to dig through this mess whenever I was looking for a spice, whether it was cumin or nutmeg.
I had this old circular spice rack from years ago but a number of spices that came with it were ones I did not use so they just gathered dust and took up space. I decided to dump out all the spices from the jars and remove all the labels. I washed them and relabeled them with the spices that I use all the time.
In the blue bucket I keep spices I don’t use as often (like BBQ rubs) and refills of frequent ones.
As for the cabinet I pulled everything out and reorganized, keeping the baking goods in top. Brian was shocked when he opened the cabinet to look for some tea and he knew exactly where it would be.
That’s it for this week. Upcoming posts will be the garage pantry, the living room bookshelves/my work area, and the DVD/media shelf. Happy organizing!
