Brenda's Get Organized Journal: Week 4

I have been busy tossing old makeup and putting my vitamins and hair accessories in tins that I painted to match my bathroom decor. I have put a lot of small things like thermometers and cold remedies in tins and baskets and rigged up a shelf under my bathroom sink to maximize my storage.

I have also gotten a lot done in the kitchen. By putting most of my cookbooks and seasonal cooking items into those big plastic storage containers and relocating them to my pantry, I cleared up lots of space in my cabinets. I also put plexiglass panels in my cabinets in order to keep my baking sheets and the lids of my pots and pans more orderly and easier to see.

I also took an old kitchen cabinet and attached it to the wall after I did a painting technique on it to match the colors in my bathroom for towels, shampoo, toothpaste,feminine products and our bath oils/salts. It is really shaping up and I should be well on my way to being finished with the bathroom and kitchen by the time we get our next assignment. This has been my favorite part of this challenge.
