Now it was time to tackle the kitchen corner cabinet – do you have one of those? It is amazing how much stuff you can fit into one!
When you open the cabinet door and look in – it really doesn’t look that bad, does it? Not totally organized but nothing falls out on you!
Well, I started pulling things out and I felt like I was reaching into Mary Poppin’s carpet bag – things just kept coming and coming and coming! I ended up with this pile on my counter.
Yikes! Yes – all of that came out of that small corner cabinet.
An assortment of all kinds of different rubber/plastic containers. I think there was about 5-6 lids for every one storage container – what happened to all the bottoms???
I decided to get rid of all the storage containers I had – yes, all of them and start over. I made a donation to Goodwill and bought a new box of disposable storage containers from Ziploc – love those things. I also found a really cool food storage container organizer at The Container Store. It wouldn’t fit in my corner cabinet so I had to clean out one of the bottom cabinets for it to fit into. I love it!
My corner cabinet now looks like this….
It is now the perfect home for my food processor, and a few other kitchen tools I use all the time. Now really – how many storage containers does one person need? Have you counted how many you have recently?
What declutter project have you tackled lately? I am onto my master bedroom and what lurks under the bed!! Scary!
