Wow! what a long couple of weeks! First I was off for a week, then back for 3 days, then off for a work trip for another 3 days! I will finally be back to a regular schedule.
Just before I left, I started work on organizing the kitchen! What a challenge! First off for those of you who don’t know, we are renting a basement suite from friends and they never finished the kitchen before we moved in, that means plywood counter tops(yuck!) no ceiling and no upper cabinets, or doors on lower cabinets.we are luck we have a sink, dishwasher and oven hooked up! It also means we don’t have a pantry. All of our dry food is in a pretty inaccessible place, its a really deep corner cupboard. Totally frustrating when you need to find something and you have to pull up a flashlight on your phone just to see and try to dig through everything, just to realize you don’t actually have it! We also are limited on what crappy counter space we do have!
So what can I do to fix it while we are waiting to get it finished, and also try to cut down on packaging?
I am going to have Alex build me a shelf! something where I can put all my bulk jars on display and also a few other items that we don’t have room for on the precious counter space.
so far I am off to a good start, at least I think so, running out of packaged products slowly but surely, I have everything ready to go to make new stuff when the time comes 🙂
