small victories: a kitchen cabinet

with 2 comments


I needed a small victory this week, and getting this kitchen cabinet under control was just the thing.  I have the luxury of plentiful kitchen cabinet space, so it’s theoretically not hard to keep my shelves looking decent.  But entropy is a powerful force in our condo, and since we’ve switched from buying canned beans to buying dried beans in bulk, the little bags of beans have gotten a little crazy.  In fact, during the process of organizing the shelf, I discovered some red lentils I didn’t know we had.


The main change here is a collection of stackable glass containers to wrangle the bean collection, and the rest sort of fell into place.  Small changes, big satisfaction.  (And those lentils were delicious!)  Next up: the spice and flour cabinet.

  1. Ann, you have a very friendly condo neighbor that could use a bit of organization. Actually I had the usual notion that Ephiphany would bring those challenges/projects to fruition. Recently my brother called attention to the idea that I could be stamped with a diagnosis of bi-polar. December I was happy, happy, decorating, you know, you can tertify to that. January = I am struggling to be me…….

    • January is my least favorite month, for sure. But there’s something about a new year (and a new school semester) that motivates me to organize – even if it’s just a cabinet. Though I struggle with organization (my natural state is chaos, apparently), I find it a therapeutic exercise. And I find other people’s houses and things so much more interesting than mine, so just say the word and I’ll be over to organize your cabinets!
