The kitchen is clean, the kitchen is clean!
For "before" pictures, click here.
To start, I cleaned out all the cabinets. I put the family's foodstuffs that weren't opened all in one place. (We'll use the opened stuff since it would go bad before their return.) I wiped. I organized.
All the "cooking" spices.
All the "baking" spices and random baking stuff (measuring cups, food coloring, frosting tips, etc). And Shannon's "Istanbul" Starbucks mug that I got him for his birthday.
AU cookie cutter, cloth napkins(!), biscuit cutters.
I found a home for my Kitchen Aid.
Kitchen Aid and parts, fruit basket, onion/potato/garlic basket.
I found a home for coffee cups and medicine.
Coffee and medicine station.
I refolded and organized towels and rags.
Towels, potholders, and tablecloths (and the random yellow bucket).
Beans, rice, pasta, and oats. A big shout out to my friends Melissa and Erica to say THANKS for the black beans!
I scrubbed the floor on my hands and knees, and we got rid of the larger trash can in favor of a small one under the kitchen sick (Lane hasn't yet figured how to open cabinets, and I'm not a fan of finding toys in the trash or wondering if she's eaten something she pulled out of the trash).
Ahh. It's clean and organized!
Up next: the bedrooms.
