I’m sick. I have a cold. Kole and Addison have had a cold for a few days and this morning when I woke up and my throat was on fire I knew it was my turn. I went to my medicine/spice cupboard for a cough drop and this is what I found…
Yikes! How did that get so out of control!? Organizing my cupboard suddenly seemed much more appealing than taking a cough drop. Not that I could have found one in there anyway.
So that’s just what I did. And seeing my cupboard look like this actually made my throat feel better.
Random baking supplies on the top shelf.
On the bottom shelf I put one of my recent Container Store purchases to good use. I bought this little stacker to help corral my spices and make them easier to reach. Not that I reach for them all that often… but still. They appear easier to reach.
And the middle cupboard holds medicine. I got rid of a lot of stuff that had expired. Then I placed our most often used items in the front. Allergy meds and barbie band-aids for the littles. Ibuprofen for me… because of the littles.
So the next time you’re sick, instead of taking some medicine, try organizing it instead. It might be just what the doctor ordered. Was for me. :)
