I have always been a tad obsessed when it comes to organization. Some people get an adrenaline high from jumping out of a plane...me, I get one from sorting out my mitten and scarf basket. My pantry has gotten me quite a few remarks, like, you could put that in a magazine. So, what if I like to have all my labels facing the same way, I say. I just like to know where everything is.
My kitchen is in a constant state of movement. Friends and family will come by and things will have been moved since the last time they were over. Me? I am always thinking that maybe the said item will serve a place better in a different spot. So, I have to try it....Eventually it will make a home somewhere. A spot that remains the same.
Since we have moved into the house I have been pret'near giddy every time I get a new shelf or a basket. Look, here's my new spice stuff. K and I filled and labeled all the little jars. See how nicely they fit into my drawer? Never again will I have to move spices all around in the cupboard to find what I need.
And this? This is the shelf in the mud room. Used to keep all the shoes from piling up all over. I even have 2 empty shelves on it left to fill! And the little coat rack...hung at just the right height so my little guy can hang all his sweatshirts and ball caps.
Here is where all the craft stuff goes...all nice and tidy in separate little labeled drawers so the kids know just where to look for it and so they know just where to put it when they are done.
At the last house we had a school closet. This one we have a school shelf. Here you will find paper, pencils, pens, anything one may need to finish a homework assignment.
This one? My most favorite so far. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVEEEEEE it. My root cellar shelves.(which there will be more added later!) Now I can keep all my canning stuff neatly in place. My empty jars and my filled jars. Ahhh....it just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
