If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram you know I was having frenzied Saturday of kitchen organization. We all have a couple of drawers in our homes that act as a catch-all. Besides the obvious ‘junk drawer’ that we have, the drawer to the right of my stove and my spice shelf in the cabinet above it became quite a mess and I was starting to get twitchy about it. You know how every time you go to grab something and get so annoyed that it has become so out-of-hand-ridiculous? Well I have been giving that drawer and the spice shelf the side-eye for about six months now.
See what I mean? Not organized whatsoever. So…time to switch some things around! I would have taken a picture of the spice bomb zone but I was in a frenzy at that point and emptied it all out before I grabbed my camera.
Instead of putting the utensils back in, I found a new home for them. I turned this drawer into my herb and spice drawer instead!
This is already so much better. I’m so excited to be able to see everything at once when I cook now. I moved some things from the old utensil drawer into the drawer on the left of my stove. I turned the utensil organizer vertical instead of horizontal and moved my measuring cups and spoons over to this side. (How cute is my little vegetable scrubber?!) I put the rest of the spatulas and random utensils in their own designated drawer now. This drawer isn’t the most organized but at least everything is close to the same size and easy to grab!
So glad I finally organized these! It didn’t take nearly as long as I thought it would and I’m interested to see if this will make navigating around the kitchen a lot more pleasant now!
