Let's Talk About Storage
Updated: Feb 15, 2020
Let's talk storage - there is never enough. I don't have a garage. I live in a condo so I rent storage space outside my home. It's getting expensive to pay this monthly bill. They say necessity is the mother of invention. And now I can see that I can create more storage space by reorganizing my kitchen cabinets.
I'm on a mission to empty my storage space. I started with the base cabinets and emptied them. I discovered hard to find pots and pans that I thought I threw away years ago. I installed three rollout shelves in one base just for the pots. It's a miracle. I can see my pots and pans now and find their covers easily, amazing. I actually found a rack that displays my pot covers separately.
I found a way to stack my plastic containers neatly, lift my heavy mixer and reach the top shelf of my upper cabinets. I had the room, so I also installed a waste pull-out and recycle bin. The winning combination of roll-outs shelves and storage racks saved a lot of space for more stuff. I was not able to empty my storage space yet, but I'm working on it. Next I'll tackle the walk in closets.
