My kitchen progress
Today, I finished the pantry. I put all my baking tins, mixer, etc. on the first shelf. I moved all my plastics to a shelf in an upper cupboard and their lids on a lid rack from the dollar store on the shelf below. I had only bought 2 of these racks and they are really handy and one of my better buys. The best thing was being able to show my husband all my plastics which are on a shelf of a 1/2 cupboard. He always complains about all the plastics I own and this finally proved that I don't have that many.
I do have 2 of the largest ziploc plastic bags filled with lids that have no containers that I still need to throw out. Somehow, I feel that the containers will show up even though I know they couldn't possibly.
I moved the phone books to a middle upper shelf above the phone. I now have an empty first shelf in which I plan to put the stapler, scotch tape, pens, etc. that are now in the junk drawer. I had cleaned out the junk drawer a month ago but you'd never know it. So, maybe by moving "office supplies" out of there, I can finally get a handle on the junk drawer.
I have only 1 more shelf to go through. I know what's on there so it's just making it neater. Then I'm done! Yeah!
After this, it's on to the hall closet and the "stuff" next to the dryer in the laundry room as well as the cupboards above the washer and dryer. After that, it's back to my bedroom closet which is a whole other problem. Then my husband has to go through his 10 or so boxes which he showed interest in actually doing. What happens when I finish?
