I Put Jeff To Work And Paid Him In Beer.
Let’s review what Jeff did over the weekend. For the record, he’s an asian handyman badass.
All the upper cabinets plus a wine rack (faints) are in place. Except a cabinet over the fridge because one of us measured and purchased the incorrect size (me).
The bottom cabinets are next, pretend my floor is clean, and the mustard cabinets need to die. I’m hesitant regarding countertop installation, but Jeff is confident in his abilities because he’s watched a few videos on You Tube (eff).
I organized the crap out of our spices and consolidated and it was mostly just an excuse to buy more glass jars. I am a total sucker for a glass jar. I put everything I use a lot on the right of the stove-olive oil, coconut oil, tumeric, garlic, italian seasoning, cumin, and my asian flavors (top secret).
I went through our dishes as well and I would like to trim back, but I have a problem with Anthropologie bowls and the problem is I can’t stop buying them. I also bought too many plates, as we’ve never had 13 people over for dinner (we have but I probably made them eat off paper plates), but they were on clearance and they reminded me of my grandmother’s dishes she had when I was little so I choked and bought all they had-13. I also do not like my bread plates, we never use them, so I might donate them and buy more bowls. I might donate everything and just have a cabinet full of bowls (not really).
This is to the left of the stove and it is the baking stuff and lesser used spices (and my vitamins). Let’s talk about the bottom shelf. I threw out 22 containers of expired spices (not joking) because my mother is a spice hoarder. There were THREE jars of marjoram and trust me when I say I purchased none of them. I don’t even know what the hell you put it in and she also has a thing with sage. If you know of any recipes calling for a shitload of marjoram and sage, hit me up because this cabinet is making me do my anti-anxiety breathing exercises.
SO MUCH BETTER.
Team Organized and down with unnecessary spice hoarding,
