We have a small kitchen. It was recently renovated and is slowly coming together. One problem with having a small kitchen (especially because you enter the house into the kitchen) is the clutter that lands on the counter tops. On any given day, there's mail, magazines, bags, food and dishes. It's a constant battle.
You see this area right behind the door. I should be embarrassed to post such pictures but this is real life. It's always a mess. Papers/bills/magazines just overflow until my husband or myself gets serious and sorts through it. Another problem is that phone jack. It's never been used since we've been here and I'm sick of looking at it.
So I went to TJ Maxx yesterday because I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. The second I saw this tiered wire bin I knew where I could use it. I brought it home and inserted three small tabs of paper: Mom, Dad and Girls. I strategically placed it so the phone jack would be covered when the baskets were full.
Mission accomplished...I can see the counters again!
After completing a few small projects, my next order of business is posting about our entire kitchen makeover.
