Today I decluttered a cupboard above the stove that I rarely open.
As much as I love to cook, I find that I rarely look into my recipe books. And when it looks like this, can you blame me? I look online for most of my recipes, and often have my laptop sitting next to the stove while I cook - much to my husband's horror!
I pulled everything out - recipe books, magazines, loose papers, cards, and went through it all.
I couldn't part with it all so I kept the ones that were sentimental to me (...the 4-H cookbook my Grandma gave me shortly before she passed away, our church cookbook...), my Company's Coming books ('cause they're just spectacular), and I kept in the card box my favourite recipes and my holiday traditionals, not just, "Hey this recipe looks good...maybe I'll make it someday."
Once everything was decluttered I realized that I had waaaay more cupboard space than I thought. Up went the fondue pots, freeing up the cupboard over the fridge.
So much better!
I took a couple items that were cluttering up the floor next to the fridge, and was able to put them in the newly freed up cupboard!
