Today’s challenge in the 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home series was to clean out and organize your kitchen cupboards.
Thankfully, I had recently done this a bit while cleaning the outsides of the cupboards, so it didn’t take me too long at all….
The pantry cupboard was a bit unorganized. I just lined up all the cans and boxes, and wiped out a few crumbs that were on the shelves. I find this cupboard a bit annoying because it is a corner cabinet, so you can’t really stack things in straight lines, and it is hard to find items in there. It always looks a mess too 🙁
Next, I worked on the cupboard where I keep all my staples…flour, sugar, spices, etc. I recently reorganized this cabinet as well, so it just needed a little sprucing up and wiping out of some salt and pepper that had spilled on the spice rack.
I did take out a few cups and plates that we don’t really use anymore, along with a bowl that had been a bit melted in the dishwasher. It was one of my son’s favorites, but since he was napping, he wouldn’t even know it went into the trash 🙂
As you can see, most of the items that I chose to get rid of today were old cups from the cupboards that we don’t use much anymore. I also found an old box of Splenda coffee creamers that had expired almost 2 years ago. They didn’t taste too good, so I guess that’s why they made it to the back of the cupboard!
I don’t know how the kitchen could look any better! Thanks so much Crystal 🙂
