Getting Organized Challenge

Day #12 over at A Bowl Full of Lemons 21 days of organization was the Spice Cabinet.  Surprise!  I have one :-)  Actually, I call it my "Spice, Open, and Need this week cabinet".  It is one of only two food cabinets so it gets messy a lot!! 
The Before Mess!

And The After
The bottom shelf holds my little used spices as well as all of the packets of things like taco seasoning.  This is also where I store Salt and Pepper for cooking.  The second shelf keeps any items I need for recipes this week so I don't have to constantly go downstairs to the pantry plus it also is where I keep things that are open like bread crumbs, peanut butter and Crystal Light.  Than the top shelf holds pasta boxes and pancake mix.   My true spice holder is on my counter (you can just see the silver knob on the top of it)  I actually took this out in July thinking I would get rid of it to free up counter space but I found, over the next few months, that I missed the ease of it!  I brought it back in, cleaned it up, took off the old labels, added new labels with the help of my label maker and have not regretted it for an instant! 

Day # 13 was the Medicine Cabinet.  and, guess what?  I have one of those too!  I've only had one for about 9 months though!  When we did our minor bathroom re-do, instead of putting up just a mirror, we added a medicine cabinet and have not regretted it for a moment!

The before - it really isn't that bad - just needed to be cleaned.

The after - I wiped it all done and put the stuff back in :-)
