Hey guys! Soooo sorry that I have not had any posts for you.
Last Thursday was my bday so I took a day off and then the weekend I just got busy helping my mother. This week I have no excuse for not posting, so I’m trying to make up for it lol.
I hope you all enjoy the weekend! I know I am, it’s finally back in the 50’s here and have a clear sky all weekend woohoo!!
Okay enough talking let’s get to what I was suppose to be saying.
This organizing post is gonna have a little twist. I sat down to start it and realized I didn’t have a catchy title. Miss Wendy and I were discussing this. I also realized while going through pictures that I did not have any before pictures, soooooo I had to come up with something quick for you all.
Thus came the free storage idea! Lol
We are still gonna talk about how I organized the section but I’ll talk about the items I used to organize my little section.
This is my little baking section, I also have the crock pot there too. There is a reason why the mixer and the crock pot is down low. That reason is because I can have them at my level and to be able to see into them. Also for the crock pot was a safety reason, I didn’t realize how heavy it was and ended up hurting my back while trying to lift it from the counter.
But that is how it looks, it is not the most ideal place I would like it but you have to work with what you got.
This is how I have my mixer all set up. It’s in a tight corner but I’m still able to use it well. I use the little hooks to hang up my mixing hooks. Then I have toothpicks that I actually used from an old seasoning jar. I also have my mixing spatulas there, so I am not going to another place and looking for them. To store them I used a can, washed it out and then decorated it. I get food plus a little storage thing!
These four decorated boxes, I just use to store all my baking items. And the boxes came right from my pantry, they are old Ramen Noodle boxes that I just decorated. So if you are ever in a pinch and don’t really have a budget to go out and buy stuff to organize or store your stuff, go look in your kitchen or around the house first. You might be surprised what you find to use.
The top left box is filled with my brown sugar, powder sugar, white chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips and Andes. To store them I used pasta sauce jars (after washing them of course!). I love having them, but I have realized that I might have a tad bit too many jars. They do say recycling is great so guess I am doing something right! I do want to eventually get them in different containers but at the moment they work.
Top right box just has extra powdered sugar and brown sugar. I was running low, so needed to get more.
Bottom left box holds just what is left of the all purpose flour and then I have self rising flour.
Finally, we have the bottom right box. It holds candy corn, brown sugar, orange chocolate melts and milk chocolate melts. I ended up using gravy jars, peanut container and more pasta jars. Are you seeing a pattern here? If it is free afterwards, who cares lol.
Lastly we have the flour, sugar, baking, etc. I love these containers but they do have a down fall to them. My grandmother had bought these from Walmart and they do work but when you go to grab one you have to grab it from the side or the lid will come off (they are suppose to air tight containers but the box lied..). And I just have them standing on the bottom of my microwave stand that does not have the microwave on said stand..Oops 😛
That is it for this post, if you have any suggestions on how you organize them. Please leave a comment, I love trying different things.
If you have any questions or just want to send us a recipe, the email is under the menus.
Let me know if you are enjoying these type of things or if you want me to try something different.
Until next time!
