Decently and In Order:Hampton Rental Home: Kitchen

 At last I am posting some of my favorite kitchen organization ideas just a week before we move again! Praise the Lord God provided a wonderful rental home for our family on the other side of the tunnel and for $150 a month cheaper. Plus it has an extra bedroom, extra garage space, a front porch, and is 15 minutes from the new church plant our church has sent out. So we are hoping to be a great witness for the Lord Jesus Christ and be hospitable to the people of Suffolk, VA. One of my favorite things about being a family who remembers to do things decently and in order (most of the time...there are those moments) is that we have more time to reach out to others without worrying about having to put our own selves back in order first...and to me that is priceless and worth the extra 10 seconds it takes to put things back where they belong or being called OCD.

So this is the first cabinet in the kitchen: I like white dishes because it gives a bright look when you open the cabinets =) The bamboo plate stacker is at Walmart and is wonderful for not having to move all the little plates to get to the big ones =)

 Our storage container cabinet. I like to use glass storage containers....I am not sure why my husband is trying to contaminate us with those plastic glade j/k. 

This is our "medicine" cabinet. We use vitamins and oils to help our family feel better. The bamboo spice tiered shelf is also at walmart for about $6. I love the thieves and peppermint oil combo I have been putting that on my 21 month olds feet and his runny nose disappears in about an hour!

We upcycled some old food jars and stuck a chalkboard label on them for a uniformed look. 

 Okay so I have a lot of kitchen gadgets I earned most of them for free with my short lived career as a Pampered Chef The minimalist in me says sell them on craigslist...but the other side says keep them they are so nice and shiny and you might just use them all one day. The bamboo drawer dividers were also free from Pampered Chef =).

 More Bamboo....I really like bamboo in the kitchen =). 
 Our "Junk" drawer using another Walmart Bamboo product.

 In the cabinets I keep like items together: this is my baking cabinet.

This is my small appliance cabinet.

Until next time....Let all things be done decently and in order!
