Update on the Kitchen Organization Project


3 comments
Hello, Hello.

If you recall, I mentioned on New Year's Day that I had embarked upon this quest to organize my space even more.  I'm still working in my kitchen, because if you've been around this space a while, you know that I've got lots of "stuff" around my home.  I don't know if it's because I'm getting older, or in a different phase of life, or can't think with so much extra these days, but the idea and reality of purging my home is looking better and better.

I've been working my way from one end of the house to the other, so right now I'm in the middle - the kitchen.  In order for you to understand all the rest of the videos (like after versions), I must reveal the ugly of what I was starting with.

Below are a series of videos to help you get a better idea of where I am at present.  Hopefully I will wrap this project up soon because my new set of classes started on Monday.  I think what's left is to finish cleaning out two cabinets, the microwave cart, and then figure out how to properly store things in the empty upper cabinets so that it frees up the space in other parts of my home.  In essence, I'm looking to maximize every inch of the space.

Here's what's been going on...





I did donate loads of kitchen items to a local center, so that made me feel good.  There are obstacles along the way especially in working with an older home, but I'm still looking forward to continually making this space truly my own.  :-)

Happy Organizing,

  2. Hi Libby, It's a lot of work organizing a kitchen! This is something I really need to do. Jim's mom helped a bit last summer when she was here putting some cookware in the basement out of the way since I brought more stuff into the house! I would really love to purge like you have. I love those plate organizer shelves. How handy! I wish I had some good suggestions. Purging is probably the best thing you can do. Your cabinets remind me so much of my old house which was built in 1960 with the original cabinets still there. We also have the catch all kitchen counter! It drives me crazy but there is no other place to put that miscellaneous stuff.
