In theory, cupboards are wonderful places to keep all of your stuff. In my reality, I forget about things almost immediately after they get put into the cupboard. Food, crockery, baking equipment, whatever it is, as soon as it goes into the cupboard it’s as though it vanishes, walks to the lamppost and waits for Mr. Tumnus.
I am more of an open concept person. I need my stuff laid out in front of me so I know where it is, much like my tea tray above. If the tea is hiding out in the cupboard, I will forget to make it. Honestly. I need the visual reminder. I operate under the same system at work. It’s why I love those huge desk calendars, too.
I need to find a flat with glass cupboards and my problems will be solved.
How do you like your kitchen organized? Do you find you take a similar approach to organization in other areas?
