Pintrest Challenge Complete

The Pinterest Challenge hosted by Kate at Censational Girl inspired me to try to organize my under sink storage.

Here are some of the inspirational pins posted by blogger 17 Apart:

I thought the use of a tension rod was a clever way to make the cleaners accessible and create more space.  So I tried it out myself.  Now, I have to confess that I just got right down to it and forgot to take any before pictures, my bad.  But, you know yourself, when the cleaning bug hits you go with it! It’s a universal rule, that, and never wake up a sleeping baby.

Since I don’t have any before pictures, let me just give you an idea of what the sink looked like before I started.


Not exact but you get the idea and my sink does have that annoying bar going down the middle which makes access to anything a little difficult.

I pulled everything out, purged the stuff that was no longer needed, cleaned the base of the cabinet (can I just say, YUCK.) and set everything back.

The crock pot has to stay for the time being until I can work through the rest of the kitchen cabinets to find a place for it.  But at least now, my cleaning supplies are in order.  I put the most often used items on the right and the lesser used cleaners behind the annoying bar in the middle.

I also reorganized the “wrap center” of tin foil and plastic wrap which I will eventually move to a more convenient location.          

There you have it, another item crossed off my Household to do List. The best part is that is didn’t cost me a dime.  The tension rod was left over from a curtain change in my bedroom and I reused the wire baskets from under the sink.   Have you done a Pinterest Challenge lately?
