Just a little background information...I love organizing. I am a sucker for any organizing product and project. I secretly enjoy moving just so I can re-organize my closets. I find the whole thing very rewarding. Throw in color coordinating and wow, I'm insanely happy! I pride myself on organizing, it's almost my favorite thing about myself. When I found out people actually are personal organizers, closest organizers, etc, I was over the moon! They even have classes for it! Once I actually start my business it will definitely be one of my services I provide. Are any of you personal organizers? Please please please tell me about it! I'm dying to learn more.
Anyway, back to what this post was originally about (see I told you I can't stop talking about it - it's ridiculous!) First on my spring cleaning list would definitely be to re-organize most of our kitchen cabinets - my baking products and our spices and such have gotten very messy! Since we rent our apartment, there's little I can do to change the set-up of the kitchen, so I just have to work with what I have. The cabinets we have are very deep, which is hard because you can't fill them up because you will never be able to get all the way to the back!
I took this picture in the middle of taking everything out to re-organize it. It's normally packed. You can see how deep it is, but the shelves are short. I'm working on a plan to move them around and I'm looking into organizing accessories that will make these more functional and keep them neat! (How embarrassing do these cabinets look? I promise they are normally much better looking!!)
We also have a few cabinets that have clear doors on them so we have to make sure they are very neat inside (one place that won't need to be cleaned!). Here is a peek inside...
When I was buying our plates, bowls, mugs, etc., I made sure to get things that were simple and went together. I love when I open my cabinets everything matches and has a place. Clean, simple, clutter-free.
I had to show a close-up of my favorite - and first purchase for this apartment! I kept our main bowls and plates white and simple, but I bought a few plates and bowls as great accents and to add some color. Both the bowls and plates are from West Elm, I don't think they have them any more, but they are my favorite - the bowls are a perfect size for ice cream.
Have you guys started your spring cleaning yet? What are you tackling?
