I’m probably like most every other person in the world who has kids when, if there’s a choice, I let housework be the thing I let slide until it has to be done. I mean really, who wants to organize closets and cabinets when you can be playing with your kids?!

One area that drives me crazy is our kitchen. We have a lot of space, but we don’t use it wisely, nor are we the best about keeping things neat once they’re actually organized. The area under our sink is the worst, and today I had enough. I marched myself to Big Lots, got a cheap spring curtain rod, and set out to get thing done the right way.

First I pulled everything out and scrubbed the bottom of the shelving. Then I split the cleaners into those with nozzle sprayers and those without, hung the rod, and voila!

The “Before.” Sorry it’s blurry, but you should thank me. No one needs to see that in a crystal-clear image.

The “After.” So much better!

All in all, I think this took me 15 minutes. If I had known that, I would have done it a lot sooner! Well, maybe ;-)

    Great idea. That is always a problem area in our house as well.
