things are going super well here.
i tackled the dreaded bottom cupboard full of all of the random plastic and glass containers ect ect... my sister took what was hers, which was a large portion, since she uses them for meals at work (she is a nurse) all that is left is a smallish cardboard box with sippy cups, a few other kids dishes and a few storage containers, all with lids that fit (am i the only one who ends up with 1000 lids and no containers?)! i also have some jars with lids, but im actually running short!
im storing ALL of our cupboard food in glass jars these days. i like the look and also the re-usability of the containers. im trying to buy only things in bulk paper bags from my Health food store to lessen the trash in our home. some stuff only comes in re-sealable plastic, so i keep those to use again as well..
the cupboards are decluttered of dishes (also mostly my sister taking her things) i was getting so tired of dishes piled up in the dish drainer because there was no room for more cups! ive cleaned up the dish drying area, im giving my sister the dish drying rack, since i have a dishwasher, and i really want to keep that space beside the sink clutter free. i think if its not there to pile up with tsuff, ll keep the dishes put away as soon as they are dry.
we have a dresser for linens and things, as well as a wine drawer, and my *junk* drawer
.. that is all organised save for the *junk* one.. im still getting up the nerve. ive taken all of the raggy wash cloths and drying cloths and put them in my cleaning bucket in my laundry room (next on the list of rooms to clean and declutter)
i went through the food stuffs too, some for bird food, which has been around a while, and others i moved into smaller jars. im getting down to the bare minimum which is fun. im trying to think of possibilities for meals with just what we have.
im tackling the fridge today!!
Im super excited about my wooden work bench. it should be here next week, so after that im really going to have a totally organised and lovely kitchen!
