    Yeah, spice shelves can be a demon...........I put the spices that I don't use that often to the back. My shelves don't adjust...........which makes it harder.......then I 'stack them'..........

    I re-did my closets last summer......during our BRIEF heat spell..........and am loving them. I need to get down to the basement and re-do a stock pile cupboard that has gotten messed up.

    Libby............I use that shelf in my cupboard with my dishes...........the big plates will fit under it......and I put the medium plates on top........I really like it and since so much 'space' is wasted over any flat but big items, (plates) it saves some great space. Coffee cups will also fit under it.

    My dad thought I was nuts when I picked on up at WM for $5. It makes putting dishes away MUCH easier since the sizes are all separated. I also used one in my pantry cupboard...bags of beans etc on the bottom with boxed mixes line up on top. I took a sharpie to the top of them and wrote the flavours so you don't have to pull out each one to see what it is. I love being able to see what I have on hand and be able to pull items out without casing an avalanche.

    I have done the 333 project on my closet. (I post about it on my blog here at fv ) it is so nice to have a simple organized space.
    I need to do my pantry and kitchen, but it will wait till next weekend.

    The 333 closet project. You pick 33 items of clothing for the next 3 months. Box up everything else. You learn to live on less. It's a great project.

    If the 33 items I've gotten 131 different outfits. It's totally doable.

    Google it. ( because I cant post a link from my phone )

    Yes that's it. and Bridge is doing it too and got me turned onto it. I thought.. well. I'm not "throwing" the clothes out.. I'm just boxing them up. But essentially, it's teaching me that I can live on less. It's completely doable. And I work a job that requires suits at times. skirts, and casual dress. So, I thought I had to have alllll sorts of clothes to wear. Not true.
    Think about it.

    Ooh - I haven't fully checked out the site but the concept I agree with. All the clothes in my closet I do not wear. I can go w/o them. I might keep a few dresses 'just in case' and I know they fit but honestly, I wear none of it.

    I have 5 dressers of clothes granted one is a jr dresser so holds half as much as a reg dresser but still...its drawers of stuff I don't wear and haven't worn in the past 3 years. I'm sure they can go...just need the balls (or a wicked case of PMS) to donate them. I personally think DH would freak if he opened the closet and saw all my clothes gone but honestly - they don't fit well.

    I need to work on this clothes thing a lot more huh? Thanks for the inspiration

    Go Libby! Go!

    This weekend I intend to clean out the upstairs hallway closet. What I'd really like to do is to have this closet as the linen closet. Since my linen is in my Master closet. cluttering up that space.

    I will get back to you on that.

    The other thing I will do this weekend is clear out the utensil drawers and declutter under the kitchen sink. Ideally, I would like to have one of those sliding drawer things you use under the cabinets. My ex did it to the big house and it was fantastic. Those are the last remaining kitchen organization needs.


    Cheers!
