The second of my posts on how I organise my kitchen (Part one here). This side of the kitchen is a little more cluttered than the other…….and so are the cupboards!

kitchen part two

These cupboards still need a little decluttering and organising, but here’s what they look like right now.

kitchen organisation

Sorry it’s so out of focus!

Inventory
– Casserole dish x 1
– Wine glasses x 6
– Kleen Kanteens x 2
– Pyrex dishes with lids x 5 (some in freezer)
– Plastic lunch box x 2 (one missing)
– Bagel Wrap (eco)

– Glasses x 11
– Mugs x 25!!

– Iron (will go in laundry cupboard when shelves installed)
– Large Pyrex (lasagna) dish
– Chopping boards x 2
– Sewing box (will go in laundry cupboard when shelves installed)
– Toolbox
– Misc items in plastic tray (light bulbs etc)
– Vases x 2
– Small mixing bowl
– Kilner jars + lids (x 10)

I think we can all agree that’s a lot of mugs (and perhaps glasses?!). Hopefully as items break I’ll be able to reduce the amounts.

I’m not sure how far I’ll go on my minimalist journey, but I do know that I haven’t gone far enough yet!

Downsizing our stuff!

Of course minimalism starts with reducing your purchases, and I’m trying to do that, but for now, this box, which I’ve placed in the hallway of our new home, is proving to be a good place to drop things that we no longer need or want. I can then donate or recycle the items at a later date.

It’s an ongoing process letting go of ‘stuff’ (and it’s not just physical items), but I’ll keep going until I feel at the right level.
