Organization blogger home tour…

March 29, 2012
Welcome to day #4 of our Organization blogger home tour event & link party. Today I am sharing my organized kitchen, mail station, and filing system.  Here on my blog, there are tons of other organizing ideas for you to see. I hope you’ll stay a while.  Since my house is all packed up, I had to use some pictures from my this past year.  VERY soon, these pictures will be all updated.  I will have to re organize my blog into “house 1” and “house 2”.
My organized kitchen…

Our (Lunch Station). Its easily accessible for the kids to make their own lunches.
Here is our drink box. Its easy to get to and everything is in order.
My cleaners go on the cabinet door, under the kitchen sink. It saves so much space.

Baking sheets, muffin pans, etc…

Oven mitts hanging on command hook.

My (organized spices) go neatly into baskets.

Cookbooks go in a basket on the counter.

Cooking utensils go in a crock.

Organized coffee mugs in a vintage wire basket.
For more kitchen organization, you can visit my blog posts (here), (here), and (here).

My (mail station).

As soon as we check the mail, we sort through it right away. It keeps the paper piles away.  If we dont have time to go through it, it goes in the “incoming mail” folder.  If we have something to send out we put it in the outgoing mail folder.  All other folders are self explanatory.  The last folder is for coupons.  Its such a great station to have in our home. It really keeps us organized.   If I could only suggest one organizing tip, it would be to make one of these for your home.

Lastly I am sharing my organized files.  For my detailed post on how I file, you can visit (here).

Paint swatch organization. More about it (here).
Thanks for visiting my organized home.

The next house on the tour is…

If you have missed any homes, or want to start back to house #1, here you go…

    Great tour!

    We’ll soon be in the midst of setting up / organizing home #6 for our family – Hoping we’ll put down some roots in a ‘forever home’ real soon, but it makes for great opportunity to find plenty of creative organizing solutions. 🙂

    Best wishes on your newest nest!

    where did you get those mugs? I love them! Great tips, can’t wait to see your new home.

  11. Toni says:

    Jess, they came from walmart of all places!! The dollar tree also has some similar to them.

  12. Love this! I am implementing the mail system as we speak. I have seen so many cute options on pinterest but I like how simple and condensed yours is…and right on the counter – seems perfect 🙂 Now the trick will be getting my husband to actually check his folder 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing your great organizational ideas!

    What a perfect place you had to bake!
    It’s perfect!
    I know you’ll have a just-as-lovely space in your new home.
    Have fun re-doing and re-designing your new home!
    I have enjoyed doing this tour with you!

    quick question… do you feel like having the 4 bottles of cleaning supplies hanging on the cabinet weigh it down too much (that it might ruin the hinges or door swing)?? I really want to try that but my cupboards aren’t the sturdiest.

    Also… I was thinking Shaklee only had 3 squirt bottles. What are the 4 you have? I want to get those.


  15. Cheryl says:

    Good Lord a girl after my own heart! First, are your file folders turquoise?! If so, may I ask where you got them. I’ve been searching online for some for my office. I also labled the top of my spice jars (was tired of pulling them up and out to see what they were!). Love your turquoise mixer and baskets (my fave color). I definitely have to check out your paint chips post (I am a paint sample junkie). Love your kitchen and counter top. Great job!

  16. Ferly says:

    Great spaces! It never occurred to me to have an incoming mail folder! I definitely will use that! There are many times when I cannot get the mail sorted and into their respective folders, so it ends up on the counter…no longer! Ah, such a simple solution. This has been a great week!

  17. I adore your kitchen, especially those wire baskets and teal mixer! I’ve been lurking for months. I thought I should pop in and let you know you’ve got another fan.

  18. Ok, I’m head over heels for your kitchen!!!
    So lovely . . . and organized!
    Lots of Love
    p.s. Loving those shaklee bottles they’re super cute!!!
