Operation Unpack (part 2)

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.


  1. Looks good! I'm a wee bit jealous at how organized it is! MINE isn't even that organized and we've been here more than a year!
