Today is cleaning day for me. I thought about what to clean. I thought maybe I should clean the bathroom today. Or maybe I should not. Or maybe do the laundry. I had my coffee, I had my breakfast, and then I went to go look for a snack. I couldn’t find a snack. Why? Because I just could not find a snack!
I was so focused on how my closet was so disorganized! There were open cereal boxes, baking tools that were not in the right place, and there was so much candy! I realized I’ve neglected my kitchen cabinets. We had so much snacks, and food, and things that were just too much for me to visually handle. I started off with the cereals. I closed each box, disposed the stale ones, And put the unopened ones in an area that would not be touched until the other ones are finished.
Then, I moved towards all the noodles that my kids eat. I know, I know, I know… There’s so much sodium in noodles and the noodles itself are not the greatest. Rice, breads, and noodles are staple foods in most Asian homes. Our rice holder bin holds about 5 pounds of rice alone if not more. And here’s a tip, the way we cook noodles is not just the sauce and packet in the bag. Will show you we do noodles in our home some other time, but it includes adding eggs, fish cakes, green onions, and more.
Do you like the drawers you see in the pictures? I love these drawers. They make finding things and putting things away so much easier. And they are affordable. A small investment makes a big difference when it comes to closet organization. You can get these at Home Depot and you can also find them online on Amazon. Check it out:
I worked on the kitchen drawers afterwards. This part was a bit of a challenge for me to organize. Only because everything was in Ziploc bags. If I had a choice, I would put them in containers. I just was not in the mood to stop what I was doing and go out to start shopping. So, for now, things were organized by sweets and treats, baking goods, and of course… the sauce drawer.
Overall, I think I did a pretty good job. What do you think? Send me your tips and tricks on how you keep organized, so this mama can find a snack.
