Get Clean Cabinets

Welcome to Week 16 of our Organize your Life series!

Organize your LIFE

This week I decided to pick a kitchen cabinet and organize it.

I had a very busy week and didn’t want to do any projects this week, lol!

I have a corner cabinet that is kind of a weird for storing things but I like to keep our mugs, water bottles and lunchboxes in.

I started out my emptying everything out and washing the inside and out

Then, I found containers for all the items.

Here are my coffee mugs.  We have a fourth but my hubby always keeps that with him, lol.

They are so cute and I get a lot of compliments from them, lol!

I threw out any mismatched items and put everything back.

I keep the bottles and mugs on top.

I keep the lunchboxes on the bottom with a bin (I forgot to take a pic of it) behind it.  It has extra stuff in it like another bottle, huggies, etc.

I feel that it is simple and organized and I can even put more in it if I want to.

*Organizing Tips*

Get rid of stuff. Toss, donate or sell items that are broken or unused. Take a bin and try to fill it up with stuff to donate.

Go Through. Go through and see if you use/need it.

Remove. Take away everything that is not needed or used.

Empty. Take everything out to see what you have.

Decide. Only keep what you really need.

Refill. Be careful when putting everything back in. SIMPLIFY!

Replace. Replace items with ones that you need.

Designate. Have a spot for everything! :)
