Under the cabinet organization....


I am still in organization mode....although I am slowing down with the addition of full days of homeschooling.....I just don't have much free time!


One place that was just a mess was under my sink....





I have had multiple spills of various cleaners and the finish inside my cabinet was just a mess!  No matter how hard I worked, it never would look clean.....





A super inexpensive solution is contact paper.....contact paper has really evolved since I last used it years ago.   I had visions of paper being stuck together and 70's brown colors......Instead for about $6.00, I bought this gray patterned roll!



Back around the pipes I had to piece it together and you can't even tell! The pattern hides the seams and I lifted this piece to straighten it a few times!

I bought a couple of storage containers and now I can find all my stuff!



Another eyesore in my kitchen was my kitchen island.....part of my problem is that I just don't "see" storage well.  I'm the type of person that does not pack the trunk because I would never fit it all in!  I've never been good at spacial-type stuff!



So my baking racks would always look like this....


....and because it was such a mess, I wouldn't want to use them!




My solution was this $5.00 little device from Rubbermaid!



Honestly....I could do a happy dance every time I open the cupboard door!



In this midst of this whole process, my hubby came in and said...


Hubby:  "Wow, you really do like baskets...."
Me:  "Yes, honey,  I really do like baskets!"


He just doesn't quite get my love affair with baskets and bins.....
