Thursday Happenings...

So it's been pretty dreary around here lately, making good for some good cleaning!

Yesterday, I decided to re-organize our kitchen. I went to Wal-Mart & Bed Bath & Beyond to get some organizational accessories. I was ready and armed. I started taking stuff out of all the cabinets and decluttering; i.e.-throwing away expired food items and things that are older than I am. Before I knew it, it looked like this:


Whoops.


And who doesn't need 5 jars of expired salsa?

Anyway, I sorted like things into groups and made out a plan as to where I wanted stuff. I eventually decided all plates, dishes, glasses, bake ware, etc would go on the left side and all food items on the right.

Then I got a little organization crazy. I typed up lists of what each cabinet contained. (This will help Mom & Dad since they didn't have an input as to where stuff was going :o) Ya'll- the kitchen is rockin' my socks off. Here are some pics of the new and improved kitchen!








So I made a binder of our To-Go Menus and put the binder in a drawer. Super cute.


Our Family recycles. A Lot. And we always end up with mountains of recyclables in the sink that my dad has to sort out and drag to the garage. Well know, we have a recycle can! And don't think I wouldn't take the liberty of cute-ing that up too :o)


::On a side note:: NEW 30 ROCK TONIGHT! I CAN'T WAIT!

ha. I love how you typed up lists for each cabinet!!! That is something I would totally do! I label things for my husband all the time because I move all his stuff around without telling him, when I am in one of my Organizing Fits!
Great job!!
