What lurks behind this cabinet above the microwave in our kitchen? The cabinet above the drink station serves as storage for vitamins and other pills, first aid supplies, and it’s also where we keep our hot beverages (tea, hot cocoa, coffee). Until recently, this cabinet was a mess. Before the kitchen remodel last year, all of these items were in the cabinets over the stove. Since that cabinet went away the items had to be relocated.
As you can see, even though I had some bins to help with organization, things were just shoved in there and it was messy every time you had to use anything that wasn’t near the front. While I was off for a few days at the end of the year, I decided to clean it out. I threw away everything expired or not used and I put this shelf insert from Ikea (that I already had, still in the original packaging) to use. These inserts are super handy for creating more space. I think I should pick up another one. I also put a small thrift store basket behind the stuff we use daily to store all of small prescription medicine bottles.
Here it is better organized and less of a mess now.
Have you begun the new year with any organizing or purging? I definitely did this last year too (with our closets and the basement) and it feels good to get things in order. Even better, I’ve managed to keep the areas tackled back then organized all year.
