What some might call Obsessive Compulsive Disorder... like that makes sense... I call Outrageous Cludder Domination. Why? Because when I finish organizing something
I truly feel that I have DOMINATED it!
For instance, our kitchen. Like most kitchens, we have several cabinets that are home to our dishes, pots and pans. However, our small kitchen is also the location of our laundry facilities
and my favorite closet of the house that some refer to as a "Pantry".
As a wedding gift, my parents gave Tyler & I a membership to Costco and gave us a million bulk size household items. Needless to say, we were grateful but quickly had to find space for everything... permanent space... not just the kitchen table! Therefore, my first three OCD projects of the house were organizing our kitchen cabinets, the laundry room and the pantry. See below!
Cabinets... you never realize how much Tupperware you have until you have to find a cabinet big enough to host it. Our corner three shelf cabinet literally has NOTHING but Tupperware and one stack of Crate & Barrel saucers and two meat platters. This is what happens when one of your bridesmaids sells Tupperware! So grateful though- this stuff comes in handy since Tyler and I cook at home almost every night and ALWAYS have leftovers!
Laundry Room... So appreciative of the work that the previous home owner did to our home, such as adding additional levels of shelving in almost every closet! The extra storage room in our laundry closet very quickly become the home for our Costco goodies. We were also able to purchase a new washer and dryer from Lowes (after weeks of shopping other stores) that is energy efficient and actually did significantly decrease our water bill! Side note: An old closet organizer made for the perfect kitchen towel sorter (dish rag, dish towels and cleaning rags) and we were finally able to hang our Chapel Hill (BOOOOOOOOOO) and DUKE (WOOHOOOO) grocery bag holders that I purchased at the Southern Living Christmas Show.
Pantry... Ahhhh :)...
So happy that our pantry is SO big that it can hold all of our non-perishable food, our extra condiments and even some of our small appliances! Oh, and the aprons fit nicely on the inside of the doors too!
