Since our kids are growing up and moving out we have moved from a house to a condo and now a few months ago from a condo to an apartment. I find myself having more storage issues than I remember when we moved to the condo several years ago.
So, I am looking for ways to organize the apartment! I will share with you what I have done so that if you have any suggestions you can share them with me, or maybe something I stumble upon may help you!
I want to work on my stockpile pantries – I have 1 for kitchen and one for health and beauty. I also need to work on my kitchen pantry.
I want to work on my towels and sheets, blankets, quilts, and all that jazz storage.
I will begin with my Christmas tree and decorations, because that is the most pressing. I need to get that tree down to be able to move around in the living room!
The one that is weighing on me the most, and for which I have no clue, is my spice area. With the apartment, the lack of counter space makes things very difficult. All small kitchen appliances that normally sat on my counters won’t fit anymore! My George Foreman Grill, toaster, coffee pot, can opener, microwave, those things are finding homes on top of the refrigerator and in the floor of the kitchen pantry and under the counters – provided there’s room!
But, the spices – oh my goodness, I like to have them above the stove or to the left or right for easy access while cooking. However, these cabinets are so tiny that I can’t fit them all! So, I am still pondering about those areas.
So, this is the journey I will be on for the next little bit – organization – makes me laugh a little, I am sure it makes my Mom laugh A LOT – cause that is not my forte’, but, necessity is the Mother of invention – right?
Stick around and help me sort it all out, ok?
