I am participating in the 14 week challenge at A Bowl Full Of Lemons, one of my favorite blogs. Each week, I will focus on a different area of the house to clean, simplify and organize. This challenge is just what I need to get ready for Christmas.
I have already cleaned and simplified the kitchen. I do my big cleaning for the year in the summer when I am not teaching.
We do not have a lot of cabinet space so I only keep in the kitchen the things we use. My dishes are white with a couple bowls with pops of color.
My bakeware is clear. That way I do not have a lot of clutter with color in the kitchen.
The only thing I did not complete this summer was labeling the containers and baskets in some of the cabinets. So that was what I focused on for this week’s challenge.
I labeled all the baskets in the food cabinet.
I finally labelled the pasta, no more guessing when I am cooking pasta.
I went to my other food closet where I keep my extra spices, oils and dressings. I labeled all the baskets.
Finally I went into the baking cabinet and labeled my jars and baskets.
Several of my favorite organizing projects from last year that I added in the kitchen:
|The jars are on top of the refrigerator and the weekly calendar in on the refrigerator.|
This year I organized several new areas:
This double basket that I use for bananas and lemons.
