WFMW - Kitchen Organization

This week's WFMW at Rocks in my Dryer is all about kitchen organizing. Two of my favorite subjects to blog about!! Since we remodeled our kitchen this summer, mine has now be reorganized and updated! Here's one thing I was so excited about adding. A "command center" in one of my kitchen cabinets!! It's a way to organize and control paper clutter in the kitchen. Let's avoid that "pile of mail" and kid/school information that gets forgotten in the pile too.
  • I started by purchasing black tier plastic trays for catching paper work. I put all papers I've got to get to on the top and Brendan's school papers on the bottom shelf.

  • Then I have a basket for note pads and post-its. My other basket holds my coupon organizer and weekly shopping fliers.

  • I have a can for pens,pencils, markers and scissors.

  • Then I got a mail seperator for school/babysitting/house cleaning envelopes which I've pre-dated for the year. That way all I have to do in put in the $$$/check for tuition, weekly money for my sitter and my house cleaning woman.

  • I also purchased those little metal magnetic cups for paper clips, magnets and rubber bands.

  • On the top shelf are my recipe boxes, a basket for charger plugs, and menus.

I just open the cabinet to find everything I need at my finger tips. I usually clean through the bins about every 2 weeks to keep it all up to date and neat. Good luck and happy organizing!!

Love it! I so wish I had room for a command center in my kitchen. I'm going to have to look and see what I can move around. I especially like the basket for charger plugs, those seem to be everywhere around my house.
