A few weeks ago John and I decided we wanted open shelving in the kitchen. Well, basically I decided, but John agreed. It’s becoming popular now and I wanted a more traditional farmhouse look, and to be able to see in my cabinets. So instead of finding some new shelves, taking down our old ones, and installing new ones, we found an easy DIY open shelving hack to achieve this. So if you are reading this, let me know what you think. Did we pull off open shelving?[Read more…] about My Husband’s DIY Open Shelving Hack & Easy Kitchen Organization

Come see our minimalist farmhouse kitchen pantry organization. I spend all day in the kitchen – breakfast and dinners every night, and sometimes lunch. So it’s very important to me to have a clean pantry and for frequently used items to be easily accessible! After organizing the spice cabinets, I was really excited to tackle the pantry. Now, I am so proud of how our pantry looks and functions, that I want to show it off to friends and family! These tips for pantry organization will have you cooking better and faster in no time.
How to optimize pantry organization
I really wanted the pantry to make my life easier when making meals. (I know, obvious right?) But the truth is I had never really thought about it like this before. I had always thought of it as a place to store food. But why not make it more of like a kitchen caddy – something that is designed specifically for your or your family’s needs in mind? You can “store” extra food somewhere else. No need to sift through storage to find an item that you use almost every day.

Last week, I decided it was time to totally redo our spice cabinet organization. We cook a lot at our homestead and I was finding that the spice glass jars and containers were taking up so much space in the cabinet and looking so unorganized. Also, we spend a lot of money on spices because you have to buy the little glass jars. Instead, I wanted all of our spices in a reusable glass jar so I could order more in bulk. Also, I wanted plastic totally gone. In this post I show how we took everything out of our spice cabinet and reorganized it so that we can cook, make smoothies, take vitamins, tea, and essential oils.
