4 Weeks to a More Organized Home: Assignment #17

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.

See, all better now!

Finally, I tackled the cupboards where I keep all the cups and plates.  Again, they weren’t too bad…just needed a little bit of rearranging.

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 🙂

  1. I am still working on mine. My pantry tooK a while this morning along with my cupboard I keep my baking items and spices. I got my pots and pans organized too. I only have my mixing bowls/casserole/baking dishes cupboard, all my plastic containers cupboard, and my dishes cupboard to do. I wish now I had a smaller kitchen. 😉

    Looks like you got your done really nicely.

    1. Wow, that sounds like a lot of work! I didn’t do my pots and pans or mixing bowls/baking dishes because I had done them not too long ago and I knew nothing needed to be thrown out from there. I will have to look at your blog post this afternoon and check your cupboards out 🙂

  2. I only did my food cupboards – I totally missed the dishes – oh well. Maybe I’ll play catch up tomorrow.
    Good job on the organization.
