Organize Me - A Challenge - Part 2

Okay so a few (ahem) months ago, I announced that I was challenging myself to organize my house, bit by bit and share a part of it each week.  So, perhaps you can relate to the fact that this feat was nearly impossible at the given time.  I am not going to make excuses, I will only say that I am glad that I was able to keep my house from burning to the ground with being as busy as I have been.

There is one area that has been of particular annoyance for me.  My mom gave us this little kitchen hutch as a wedding present and it has been basically filled with junk ever since.  I finally attacked.

What is all of this?

I have about 72 measuring cups in all

Spices...and baby snacks.  Obviously side by side. Oh, and a chili mix.
Okay so I have a lot of things out in the open here that most people would certainly shove into a cabinet.  I don't really have much choice because we have a silly little kitchen.  I have done my damnedest to make it work for me, but it doesn't look all that great.

I was lucky enough to be able to throw away a LOT of what was on here.  This is what I am left with.  I envision someday having a glorious shiny kitchen, but today is not that day.  It works for me for now.

This year I vow to actually put my Christmas decorations away nicely, as opposed to just throwing them into the bin as quickly as possible to get them out of my sight.  Stay tuned, hopefully I will have it done by Valentines Day.
