Spring cleaning always has me thinking about reorganizing and decluttering each and every room as I work my way throughout the house. It always amazes me just how much stuff can accumulate in just a year. I usually take the opportunity to evaluate just where we are and if there are any changes that can be made to make life a little simpler, more convenient, and of course more organized.
One space that never lets me down is the kitchen. There are always new clever ideas that not only make day to day tasks a bit easier by saving time – but save desired space as well.
This week’s Inspiration and Ideas highlights thirty of those clever ideas – and the best part is most of them are easy do-it-yourself projects that can be completed
with a simple trip to your local hardware store.
