It’s been a while since I posted something on organization. Every now and then I’ll share a tip I picked up on Pinterest or YouTube and pass the info along on my blog. After all, sharing is caring, right? A couple of years ago I stumbled upon Alejandra Costello’s YouTube channel and let me tell you, she is what I call an ‘organization guru’. While I doubt my house will ever look as clean, organized and tidy as hers, I can say that I’ve learned SO much about organizing and decluttering and just creating an effective streamlined environment where things are easy to find and easy to put away with no hassle.
For instance, take this tip on keeping your spices organized. Who would have thought that throwing a lazy Susan in your kitchen cupboard would make life a bit easier. It just never occurred to me that using this simple little gadget would not only organize my spices but also help declutter my cabinet all together. That’s what I call a win-win..lol!
Eventually we plan on re-doing our kitchen cabinets otherwise I’d totally line the inside with chalkboard contact paper so I could write down measurements and hang my measuring cups like you see Here. Not sure when we’ll do this but if it will take longer than expected to update our kitchen then I’ll probably cave and just do it now. Of course you will all be the first to know 🙂
For now here’s a picture of what the inside of my cupboard looks like. Sorry I didn’t think to take a before shot. But just picture all the spices strewn about and knocked over each other. It was a real cluttered mess. This way things are a tad bit easier to find. I keep my most often used spices on the outer edge of the lazy Susan for easier access. Just spin and win..hey that rhymes..lol!
