Organization Wednesday!

I have a new schedule called my "mom game plan" that I stole (and redid a bit) from www.meckmom.com (great site! If you haven't ever checked it out, you should!). Anyway, my mom game plan has Wednesdays as my organization day, so today I tackled our kitchen cupboards. I should have taken before pictures, but I didn't think about it, so you will just have to take my word for it that they were horrid. They look so much better now and I have so much space! Sorry there are so many photos, but we have a lot of cabinets.

In the first cabinet is where I am now keeping my mom game plan, monthly calendar, and daily food schedule. On the bottom cabinet are two baskets to put bills and checks in, a pen holder, and two binders. The two binders hold all of our important documents, one for the house (i.e. lease, cable contract, etc.) and one for the family (birth certificates, etc.). Everything hanging up is laminated so that it can be written on with dry erase markers. The top two shelves hold all of my baking supplies.





These hold all of my spices.


These shelves hold all of our day to day breakfast, lunch, and snack foods.


These shelves hold all of our canned goods, pastas, sauces, etc. (mostly used for dinners).


All of my foil, saran wrap, etc. and my oils are up here.


And of course plates, cups, bowls, etc. (and no this is not all of them, I was running a large dishwasher load at the moment).


Extra juice and water and this huge roasting pan that I have no place for.


All of my metal cookware.


All of my measuring cups, sippy cups, tupperware, and other plastics (oh and this one lonely bag of flour that wouldn't fit in the other cupboard).


Kitchen gadgetry and glass bakeware.


I still lack under my sink (which isn't too bad), but that will have to wait until another Wednesday!!

I am extremely impressed! You have seen the inside of my cupboards a few times so you know that there is just a tiny bit of room for improvement there. I will take your success as inspiration.

This looks really great, and is inspiring me to organize my house...eventually. I checked out Meckmom.com and I loved the ideas she has. Great stuff.
