#organize cupboards

Before  my 6 year old loves to help mommy and be in her pictures.



after
 organize cupboards: 


I took everything out of the cupboards wiped down the shelf. I need to at a later date buy shelf paper and put it in there.  I also need to get some spice shelf and nail them on the inside of the cupboard doors. I would need to also add a inventory of things we keep on hand and things we run out of so when I make my grocery list I can just grab and go and hopefully it will same some time in the long run. at the moment I think I'm off to a great start. Everything is grouped together so its' easy to find. I do need to buy some storage containers to help with this process though. 
It's a slow process but it's getting there.

  5. That is one thing about being OCD - everything has it's place and I know exactly what I have at all times. If it is something like canned goods, I stock up and when I get down to 4 of one kind left, it gets added to the list so I have a little time waiting for a sale. It will be great once you have a system - I promise.

    1. Great point, I have such a great system for items like toilet paper but when it comes to food... I'm a mess, ugh. I stay on top of paper goods sales but I bet if I organized my cupboards too I would also be in on all the food sales.

  21. That's a great idea to keep a running inventory. It's more than annoying when you run out of a staple ingredient and didn't realize it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ooo good luck. Sometimes I think to myself that I can keep the grocery list organized like this too, but I get lazy. Spice rack on the doors though = dream kitchen organization tool!
