Kitchen Hutch Organization

With a small kitchen and not much cabinet space, I love to use furniture in my kitchen for functional organization.Using furniture instead of cabinets add a personal touch as well as allow me to express my decor style.

This hutch I’m sharing with you today, my husband and I found at the Goodwill for $39.99.

Awesome deal!Before painting it it was a dark wood.I didn’t rush to paint it because I like to live with a piece before I paint it.I’m the type that frequently changes what I like, where I like it and how I use the items in my home.So, painting furniture right away only leaves me with another project in the near future when I end up painting it again because I’m sick of the color.

My hutch is used for 3 different purposes

1.Baking Station- all of my baking items are housed in the hutch with the exception of maybe a few seasonings and that’s because those seasonings are used for other cooking needs too. Mixing bowls and of course I have to display my vintage kitchen decor.

 

2.Lunch prep items- many of the supplies I used to pack up everyone’s lunches are in the hutch. Such as sandwich bags, small containers, plastic silverware, cookie cutters to cut sandwiches etc.There all there in one location easy and accessible.

3.Breakfast foods-Cereals, oatmeal, grits, pancake mix, syrups etc. are kept in the hutch as well.The kids know where to look for the cereal on mornings I don’t make breakfast.

I’ve included a video below so you can take a look and see how I store all of these items in my hutch and pick up some ideas on storing some of your own kitchen supplies.Do you have designated areas in your kitchen to house your baking, lunch prep and breakfast items? If so, where do you store them?

Organization Project of the Week: Kitchen Island- Pots & Pans Zone 2

Since I’m caught up on posting my Organization Project of the Week… I’ll do a weekly posting letting you know the upcoming project if you want to work along with me.  This week I cleaned in Zone 2- my kitchen and dining room.  The project I wanted to work on was my kitchen island.  I began by removing everything off the island and thinking what did I want to do with this space? How will it be helpful in the kitchen?

I decided to use the island to only house my pots and pans and the canisters here that I have on the top.

The other side of the island is also exposed.  On the left is my LeCrueset stock pot and below another stock pot.

Now all of my pots and pans are in one location and readily accessible. How do you store your pots and pans and if you have a kitchen island how do you organize it?  Thanks for stopping by.

Cleaning Out The Fridge After The Holiday

Let’s get those refrigerators cleaned out
Booooo! Yes, it’s time to start our week off with a fresh slate and clean fridge.   Hopefully, we’re all tired of leftovers and little as possible went to waste if, any.  I didn’t host the holiday and we had enough leftovers for one day, but there’s always those stragglers left behind.

What’s left behind
Like that leftover cranberry sauce, juice from those greens (lol) and let’s not forget the container that somebody ate the last of its contents, but they saw fit to return the container to the fridge, anyway.  So, tonight I emptied the fridge to give it a good cleaning.   Tell me why did I find a hot glue stick in the fridge? Those chittlens’ of mine.

Getting the job done

1.Empty out fridge

2.Toss out anything outdated

3.Clean containers

4.Wipe off items returning to fridge

5.Clean out fridge

6.Return items back to fridge

Sounds easier than it was :-/

All done!
Did you actually think I’d show a before picture of my refrigerator madness? Nope.  Not going ruin your appetite.   Now everything is clean and looks like I need to go grocery shopping.

What’s the state of your fridge after this past Thanksgiving?
