Decluttering/Organizing the Party and Lesser-Used Appliance Cabinets

Today for my 28-Day Organizing Challenge and Snyder 5 Blog Hop, I tackled two more of my kitchen cabinets: the little one above the left window and the little one above the large left cabinet.

They're the cabinets you can just barely see at the top of this photo.

The cabinet above the window contained an assortment of lesser-used appliances and tools: a juicer, a small deep-fryer, a cookie press and an apple peeler. Although we don't use these things very often, I like to keep them around and within relative reach. Our little cabinets by the ceiling are perfect for such items.

The cabinet just to the left of the lesser-used appliances contained... hmmm... what is this stuff? Random party junk, I guess. It all got shoved up here after one of our holiday parties last year.

To restore order and keep like items together, I put all of the lesser-used appliances in the wider cabinet. (I'm sure some of you mamas are dying that my crock pot is a "lesser-used appliance." What can I say? We're not crock-pot people!)

I then turned the narrower cabinet into party storage. It contains stuff like plastic forks, assorted napkins, a cake carrier and some platters. Those inexpensive wire racks came in handy once again.

A simple fix for a Monday night!

Wow, your Monday night beats mine. Glad to see I am not the only one guilty of stashing party stuff. Looking good.
