Kitchen Tour! *With Video*

Last week my sister-in-law K came over and helped me de-clutter and organize my kitchen. I put her to work that is for sure! We started with a trip to Wal-Mart to spend birthday money on items that I hoped would help us organize. Then we hit Wendy's so that we would have sustenance (the Frosty especially helped!). After that it was Work! Work! Work! At one point I realized how helpful K really was. It wasn't just that she was literally working but she secretly motivated me. Had she not been there I would have given up and put it off to an indefinite later.
Here are a few photos of the day and my purchases.
 The baker's rack "before" or should I say in midst of organizing

 The baker's rack "after" and in it's new location

 My new bamboo silverware organizer in place of what used to be nothing.

 A few (or should I say a lot!) of the items I the baker's rack needed a new home. The two-drawer box under the monitor is the new home for our letter writing/sending supplies. It has paper, cards, addresses, stamps, etc. The green box on the left is a in/out box and also holds pens and pencils. It isn't exactly how I would like the desk to look but at least everything has a place now.
Now for what you all have been waiting for... the video tour! I hope I don't make anyone sick moving around. Enjoy!

Great job! It always feels so good to get things organized and cleaned. I think it is in the air right now, we're feeling the need to do the same thing! You are an inspiration! May your kitchen always be a place of love, joy and hospitality!
