De-cluttering and Organizing cupboards

So this is likely a really boring post, but I am so excited that I finally got to work that I just have to share. Tonight, after supper actually, I couldn’t deal with it anymore and I took everything off the two shelves above my spice shelf. I had moved the cookbooks out of a cupboard above the stove a few months ago and put them in a bookshelf (amazing concept for putting books), but the shelf was away from the kitchen and on the floor, and I haven’t really used any of them since. Paulina says it is because I don’t cook or bake anymore, but she is just not right. Anywho… I cleared out the middle shelf in the cupboard above the counter where I do all my work, and viola…I think I have a winner, you see below.

The top shelf ended up with the flavors and food colors and tea and such. I removed all of the water pitchers that had been stored up there and put them into the lazy Susan that is on the lower cupboard. In order to do that, I had to take all of the home canned items back to the basement. I almost felt like that Bert and Ernie story where Ernie moves all sorts of things around in order to accommodate the fish, at least that is how I remember it. The whole things goes on and on with Bert asking where things were and Ernie keeps saying, “I’ll show you Bert.” I loved reading that with the voices to my oldest daughters. I was always annoyed with how they had everything out of place. I am thinking that the moving of things today will take a little getting used to, but the best part is that the pie plates and casserole dishes that were stacked on top of the cupboards are now inside a cupboard and the clutter up there is starting to come down. Now if I can just convince myself to throw away those plastic containers that are up there it might really look ok. Happy de-cluttering to you!!

    I hate clutter and sometimes the husband is the one responsible – a pack rat he is.
