I am SOO excited to finally finish my great Cabinet Control project!! This all started because when Ryan comes home from deployment, I have naturally re-organized the entire house and he has no idea where anything is. We discussed this frustration, and my desperate need to clean clutter and decided that we should make lists of what is in each cabinet. That way both of us have immediate access to the materials we need.
I am also loving the idea for our next move, because now I’ve truly gone through all that we own and know exactly what we have lurking about. I can definitely own up to buying two of the same item just because I forgot I owned it. Well, that is OVER with our new lists!
I took inventory, and worked each area to free up space for baby’s incoming things. I then typed and mounted my sheets on heavy black paper, adorned them with a little scrap paper, and stuck them up with washi tape.
See those two white bins? They are completely EMPTY! By re-organizing, I found out I had a lot of wasted space. Now those bins are awaiting burp cloths, bibs, and bottles;)
I also had fun looking through all my beautiful linens. So many great pieces, and I have not been using them. It’s time to decorate and fill each season with the joy of passing time.
I loved the kitchen outcome, so I continued my project in the bathroom cabinet as well. This is going to come in handy for late-night medicine needs, switching out sheets, and just locating items.
I can’t wait for the man to see the final product, but for now, I’m already enjoying the fruits of my labor. Scanning through the lists I can quickly find something, or put it away in it’s own carved out home. A little neurotic? Sure! But I have complete Cabinet Control now, and I’m loving it!
