DIY - Organization

Whenever I throw a party, I somehow decide to tackle a bunch of house projects right before. Do you do that? I feel like it's the push I need to get stuff done but it also makes me stressed out. I am happy that I got around to doing some organization though. In my quest to be more organized, I decided to head over to the Container Store the other day. Oh boy. I did not know what I was getting myself into. Have you ever been there? PS it's heaven. I never knew all the things I needed to organize before I walked in there. I bought so much stuff. One thing I picked up was a lazy susan. My cupboards are quite small but very deep. Since I only have 3 upper cabinets, I wanted to make better use out of at least one of them. I'm going to show you the before but don't be scared...

Notice how you can't see anything in the back? Yeah, that's a problem. I have like 5 bags of chocolate chips because I keep buying them since I don't know they are there. Enter the lazy susan (cue angelic music).

I know it still looks kind of crowded but I can spin that lazy susan and see everything that's in there. All the stuff I don't use it way in the back and my peanut butter (Jif holla!) still has room to be front and center. You don't know how many things I pulled out from the back of the cupboard and said, "I KNEW I had ____" or "Huh, I didn't know I had _____. Could have come in handy that one time." Now everything is much more accessible and my forgetful brain is happier.

What made this possible is what I did with the spices. Stay tuned for that tomorrow!

  1. Oh man, I probably shouldn't even be allowed near the Container Store. I think I'd buy them out! I love organizing stuff!
