After reading her blog today, and drooling over/looking at the pictures, I was motivated to take some action. When I rolled into town this evening, I picked up the daughter and headed for Target. I found some great smaller 6 quart storage boxes for just .99 cents each, and also picked up some other bigger baskets. (From there we ran to the end of my son's karate class (that's "kuh-rah-tay," right Ross?) and then walked to the downtown farmer's market. Picked up some sweet cards from my friend at Whines and Wines, got some cherries and then came home to devour fresh corn on the cob and baked potato. I love Wednesday evenings in my little town.)
After the food, I jumped into action!
First, I started with my dry ingredients/baking/sauces/jams/craft cabinet. Are you scared yet?
Here's what I ended up with after much tossing, sorting and organizing into the baskets.
I was so motivated, that I went to town on our cereal/snack cabinet.
Lastly, I NEED YOUR HELP! I have these fabulous bottles that I got on my 30th birthday. I have yet to even break the seals on top, and I'm sure there's some great way I could be using these on display. What do you think?? I'd prefer not to fill them with liquid, but I suppose oil in one makes sense. Any suggestions from all of you out there? Help me use these gorgeous bottles!
Oh, and one last shot of my stove. This is the clearest that counter on the right has been in years, and all thanks to making room in my cabinets!
I had a plan for the red wire basket on the right there, but it didn't work the way I planned. I'm still working on where/how to utilize it. Have no fear -- I'll figure it out.
