Decluttering/Organizing the Food Prep Cabinet

Another week night, another simple fix!

This evening, I emptied out what I call our "food prep" cabinet. Sitting to the left of our kitchen window, it contains cutting boards, mixing bowls, spices, oils and our measuring/weighing tools. We also keep vitamins and our coffee and tea accessories in here.

Once again, the "before" isn't horrible. But there's always room for improvement, right?

The biggest change is that I bought a three-level spice shelf. Now I can find what I need much more easily!

I also edited the vitamin/medicine tote to include only the bare essentials. Any duplicate or off-season items (cold medicine, for example) went into our second story linen closet.

The end result is a much more tidy and functional space. Makes me feel like cooking!

Love the three-tiered spice shelf. I've been wanting to get one for a couple years. Now is the time. Where did you get yours?

ahhhh, that looks great. I am still impressed how relatively open your cabinets are to begin with. You are the master of just having what you need.

Michelle- I found all of my organizers at Bed Bath and Beyond.

Molly- Thanks, I try! I did a big kitchen purge last fall. I actually still have a bunch of stuff sitting in boxes in the basement ("just in case" I decided I couldn't live without the items). I'll have to post about that stuff, too. Haven't missed it!
