ORGANIZE AND RE-ORGANIZE TO GET MORE ROOM!
DO YOU NEED AN EXTRA DRAWER IN YOUR KITCHEN
There is just a given amount of drawers even in the largest kitchen. What happens if you need just one more drawer? Improvise and look at your space differently.
Here's a drawer full of spices, that happen to be directly across from the sink. (Lots of dripping).
Put the spices in magnetic containers on the refrigerator, closer to where the cooking gets done. (Less mess).
Now there's a totally empty drawer.
COMING TO GRIPS WITH REALITY GAVE ME ONE ENTIRE SHELF IN A PANTRY.
Gone are the days when I would cook 12 quarts of soup for the upcoming holidays and the many guests I would be entertaining. Wh was I keeping the three huge 16 quart pots used to make the soup? I needed and extra shelf in my pantry so that I could buy some new dishes. What to do?
I let go of the legacy of my mother's chicken soup which was superb, and which I learned to make.
Reality is that 3/4 of my family are vegetarians or vegans.
I offered the pots to my adult children because the cook a lot.
I took out the pots and their lids and put them in the back of my bedroom closet that is fairly out of the way!
When they come buy the next time they'll take a pot or two...or three.
I can now go and buy the dishes and have a place to put them. WIN/WIN!
NEED BREATHING SPACE?
I have lots of ideas to gain space!
