KITCHEN DECLUTTER - TOUR AFTER - Hello Minimalism Series


Hello, everyone!  After hours of cleaning, decluttering and reorganizing, I have my Kitchen Tour!  I'll take you through all the cabinets and show how I organized everything.  I hope you enjoy this :)  I'm so glad it's done!

Here's PART 1 - BEFORE & Kitchen Declutter if you're interested :)


This main view and walkway.  I'm SO glad that I no longer have to see my garage and recycling on the floor!!  Much better!!


Here are all my cabinets along the ground on the left side.  Trash and recycling is tucked under the sink and out of sight.  The second cabinet stores my minimized cleaning supplies and small appliances like our deep fryer and blender.


Staying on the left, there's two cabinets above the sink on each side that we use as a pantry.  The first mostly holds breakfast foods, snacks, drink mixes and bulk on the top shelf.  I was able to make room for bulk food since I reorganized!


Here's the other side and we store canned goods, soup and anything dinner related.  We also keep plastic cups and paper plates on the top shelf for when we have a party.


Here we have the right side :)  I decluttered all the cookbooks that were collecting dust on top of the fridge and was able to free up one of the large baskets.  Now there's just one basket with snacks, extra dog bones and pancake mix from Costco.  I was cooking in the Crockpot that day, but normally I store it up there as well.  


This is where I store all of my dishes.  The top shelf has wine glasses, beer glasses and thermoses, the second shelf has all the everyday glasses/mugs and the bottom stores the plates, bowls and cooking sprays.  Everything has room and was placed close to the front for easy reach. 


These are two drawers that are below where I store my dishes.  The left is a pretty standard silverware drawer with some other kitchen tools, such as a wine opener, can opener and reusable straws.   Then on the right, there's small bowls (I mostly use these for ingredients when I cook), oven mitts and plastic storage.


Finally the last cabinet!  Sadly, this is my least favorite to look at.. and the most full.  This holds cutting boards, pans, mixing bowls, baking stuff and more.  I hope to improve this in the future.  The only cabinet I didn't show is a small one above the microwave and it's for my spices.

That rounds up my kitchen tour!  It's not perfect, but I'm much happier and enjoy cooking a lot more! Over time, I will probably go through it again to see what else I can declutter or reorganize.  I hope this inspires you to get started on your own kitchen :)  It was a bit time consuming, but so worth it!

I hope you enjoyed!  Feel free to follow my site for future posts.  As always, thanks for stopping by :)  Have a great day and talk with you soon!

Lots of Love,

Richelle
