A bit of re-organisation

My kitchen cupboards have been an absolute shemozzle ever since I moved into my new house. I never really had the time (or the inclination) to sort out the mess.

The biggest problem was that I moved from a lovely big ergonomically designed (by me) kitchen, to a little poky, poorly designed kitchen with inaccessible corners.

So of course, when I moved, everything was just shoved into the cupboards wherever it would fit, and the mess has stayed like that ever since...... until today.

A girlfriend came over to visit and spent the entire time cleaning and re-organising my cupboards while I watched and listened to her lessons.

I had to take photos, because this will be the one and only time the cupboards will look this good!

Gina said...

Oooo, I'm very impressed. You could hire your friend out I think... make a killing.

Tammy James said...

What a good friend! it all looks great! Not only do we have the same chain store but the same poky, poorly designed kitchen with inaccessible corners.

My mum and I have a funny fetish about tidy pantries and yours is very impressive! I need to get into my tupperware cupboard and sort it out...

Nikki said...

I'm insanely jealous of you having a cupboard-tidying friend. Where can I get one of those?

Sandrine said...

Tania said...

Shemozzle, huh? Mine are a tragedy. And can never, possibly ever, look like yours (much as I lustfully eye those pics).

Organization can make a world of difference. I used to try to teach my sixth graders that life would be much easier for them if they would stay organized.

Melanie said...

I think mine looked that that once, a long time ago. I am completely jealous.

Selina said...

how funny! when I was in hospital having my son my sister came to stay and cleaned out my cupboards, I love friends like this!

Corrie said...
