Posting kitchen reorganizing progress
nsf798's post about her kitchen started me thinking about my own kitchen. I had put small appliances that I use in the cabinets under the island and also on the first shelf of an upper cabinet.
But it just wasn't working because I'd struggle to get the items out and end up not wanting to use them. So today, I emptied the bottom shelf of my very wide double door pantry and put the small appliances there. I had my Showtime Rotisserie on this shelf and feel that it's always been very accessible there so the appliances I moved to this shelf are now also accessible. That shelf had been a mess of stuff that I hardly ever used but not ready to throw out just yet.
I now have rarely used items on one side of the island and I put my larger pots and pans on the other as well as cutting boards that I only sometimes use (for meat, etc). I have one on the counter that I always use for everyday use.
I have a corner bottom cupboard that is a small Lazy Susan with 2 shelves. I've kept the most used smaller pots and pans there. I'd buy those plastic containers for this spot that someone had posted but I'll be in this house less than a year so it's not worth the expense.
I still have items on the floor that need moving as well as the floor of the pantry to organize.
Hopefully, this will make my life just a little bit easier.
