One of my New Year’s resolutions for 2013 is to be more organized. If you follow me on Pinterest, you’ve probably noticed all of the organization pins I have been pinning away. My favorite pin thus far is the one from the blog A Bowl Full of Lemons: “Home Organization 101″ program- 14 weeks to a more organized home. I read it this morning and her kitchen week gave me the motivation to get my rear in gear and get stuff done.
I’m trying to cook healthier for the entire family and plan out my meals using my new meal planning board, but I realized I waste tons of time looking for the right ingredients/dishes/you name it. I would rather spend my time playing with the kids than rummaging through my cabinets and drawers. My husband had the day off today, so he entertained the kids while I tore apart my panty and cabinets to finally get organized.
I ended up moving locations of entire cabinet contents to save time in the kitchen: the coffee station moved next to the fridge and the mugs took over the cabinets on top. I moved all of my tupperware dishes next to the sink and dishwasher, which saves time while cleaning up after dinner. Tonight’s dinner was the first time cooking in my “new, organized” kitchen and it is much more efficient than the old layout. I’m thrilled that a little re-organizing in the kitchen is going to save me so much time. I don’t know why it took 15 months of living in this house to realize having the toaster near the bread makes more sense than across the kitchen!
