As I mentioned in my June 3 – Monday Menu Monday post, my aunt came into town. While she was here, she helped me reorganize my kitchen.
I did not take photos of my kitchen before she organized my pantry / kitchen. So, these are only after shots.
Previously, there were two plastic 3 tier shelf. We reduced it to one 3 tier metal shelf. The other 3 tier shelf was located where the Sprites are located. It made the pantry space be very tight. The pantry is also our laundry room, so it was hard for us to get clothes in and out of the washer and dryer.
When we moved in, Hubby installed these shelves. We made one the grains and broth shelf. Another one is the pasta and other convenience shelf. A third is the Thanksgiving/ holiday shelf. The items on that shelf are only used during the holidays or for big family dinners. Finally, one of shelves is for some of the bigger items and my bread machine.
On the left-hand side of the photo, you see a wooden piece. That is our set of cabinets for all plastic ware and cleaning supplies.
This corner cabinet holds all my baking supplies and some of my smaller appliances.
We had a white cabinet located in this spot. My mom decided to get us a new cabinet. This is our breakfast/ snacky foods pantry. The boys can quickly get them food when they are hungry. Teenagers are ALWAYS hungry.
We also cleaned out the fridge, freezer, and chest freezer. The baking pan area was cleared out.
I reorganized the coffee and tea cabinet, the former spice cabinet that is now the sauce cabinet, and the miscellaneous cabinet.
The dish cabinet was freshened up. Around Thanksgiving, I reorganized the dish cabinet. It has pretty much stayed the same except for a few stray dishes.
Above our cabinets is an area where we can store some of our memorabilia. We pulled all the memorabilia down, washed them and the area, and decided which items we wanted to go back up above the cabinet.
I must go through the cabinet with all the cups and mugs, decide what to do with our plastic ware, and get a 4-tier wire shelf for our bigger appliances that we use on a daily/ weekly basis. We are also going to repaint the kitchen.
Once all of that is done, we’ll be done reorganizing the kitchen.
Have a magical day!
