Welcome to whatever Wednesday…here we’re sharing projects we are working on. It used to be only about UFOs…now it’s about whatever you want to share!
For me….I’m STILL working on the house. I’m cleaning still and organizing. One of the main things I’ve been doing is finding things that have been driving me crazy and fixing them. Sometimes it’s such simple things.
First up…my kitchen broom closet.
I keep the cleaning supplies at the top so they are away from the kiddos..the bottom is for mops, brooms and dust pans. See that little black hand held vacuum hanging to the right? Well that has spent it’s entire time at this house on the floor. Half the time the Oreck vacuum was on top of it. It was always in the way and getting kicked aside.
I cleaned the closet out thinking I just needed to clean the closet but nope. Even cleaned, there really wasn’t a place for it. I said something to Hubby. One eye bolt later and LOOK…he had the idea to hang it. AH…why didn’t I say something sooner?
The next thing I am fixing…SPICES. Oh my word. I have NEVER been able to do spices right in my entire life. Please tell me this can be solved. We purposely had the cabinet makes MAKE a cabinet that had a way to organize spices…Still I have this….
It’s not working for me. I’m so sick of this mess.
I ended up going to Amazon and found these spice jars.
I ordered a set and when they get here, this is going to look MUCH better and be more functional…scout’s honor. The way it is frustrates me…and slows me down….and beyond all that, I want it nice. These are going to be labeled with spices I regularly use…the odds and ends things will go in the other cabinet. I think I’ll get a step up rack for there too. Little by little it will all happen.
All of this I’ve wanted to do for SO LONG. Why do I wait?
You’ll find me back here next Wednesday….I’m hoping my spice cabinet problem is no more by then….and I’ll be onto the next thing that is driving me crazy.
