Kitchen Organizing for the New Year

Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles – Joel Kelly Design

 

We normally post about kitchen organization on New Year’s. It seems like a great way to get a new year off to a fresh start. But, this year, we decided that maybe it makes more sense to get a jump on the kitchen organization just after the Christmas holiday.

There’s nothing worse than being in the midst of your favorite recipe and not being able to put your hands on the cumin. Or thyme.

Well, I mean, of course there are far worse things, but, you know, it’s pretty inconvenient and totally avoidable.

Essentially, what we’re saying is to begin the new year, the kitchen needs to be streamlined and organized and ready for anything.

Do you love the juxtaposition between this beautiful silver and these mason jars?!

The first step on our list? Getting rid of EVERYTHING we don’t need. We empty all the drawers, all the cabinets and only put back the things we can’t live without. That is critical.

It looks the best when it’s like this. But getting rid of all those stray coffee mugs and random pieces of china that somehow accumulate can be a real bummer.

And that drawer full of K-Cups? It can be a total mess. But when they’re all lined up straight in perfect rows, it’s kind of magical, isn’t it? And it doesn’t take twenty minutes to find the decaf after dinner or that chamomile tea. So that’s pretty awesome.

Speaking of tea… I have lots of tea. Lots and lots and lots.

And, of course, all that tea comes with some pretty cool accessories. When they’re all jumbled on a shelf they aren’t so great. But, when they’re perfectly lined and organized they are calm and wonderful, just as they are intended to be.

We’re still perfecting the pot and lid situation. But we’re kind of loving the pots in one drawer and lids in the other. Definitely going to try that one out.

This is what we want our after Christmas kitchen to look like.

So that, instead of worrying about where the trivets are, we can instead spend those precious moments doing what we love.kitchen organizing

We can propose a toast to friends and family, laughter and love and creating the life that we’ve always dreamed of.

If you ask us, a kitchen like this is a very, very good start.

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).
