It’s just a few days from the first day of Spring, and we’re still wearing scarves and gloves here in the Northeast! Will Spring ever come? *sign*
For someone who really doesn’t like a lot of ‘stuff’, it sure seems I have a lot of items I want to share with you all! So here’s my third installment of some items I really like and recommend.
Clear shoe organizers are so convenient for storing small items that can otherwise get lost in the shuffle in your pantry or cabinets, and they make great use of the often under utilized real estate behind your doors. Don’t just limit them to your pantry items though. They can be useful for storing small items in your bath or craft space, and of course, they’re great for their original purpose of storing shoes. This is a picture of ours at our rental which I use for teabags, cupcake holders, sprinkles, straws and chocolate :).
At our last home we had ceramic tile in the kitchen which tends to be very hard to stand on for long periods, so I purchased this mat at one of my favorite catalogs, Ballard’s, and it’s served its purpose well. I use it currently at our rental by the kitchen island, which is where I spend most of my time cooking. It’s a lot more attractive than most of the gel mats designed for comfort, don’t you think?
I love my Braun Immersion Blender! I use it nearly every time I make soup and it’s so much handier than transferring everything into a blender or food processor! You can also whip up some cream and make smoothies in a flash. They come in all different price ranges so there’s bound to be one that works for you.
I was introduced to these hangers by our daughter, and I’m hooked (no pun intended). They take up less space than traditional plastic hangers and clothing stays put. The only negative is you wouldn’t use them for pants. Oh, and they’re a bit more expensive than regular plastic hangers, but so worth it.
I can’t say enough good things about my pull out drawers! When we bought the cabin eight years ago, there were a few already installed in the kitchen and Fisherman install a few more to maximize the space. I think every kitchen would benefit from a few of these. Again, not cheap, but they’re a purchase that you will never regret. If you’re handy, they’re fairly easy to diy for far less moolah.
