A Happy Home is an Organized Home Part II- Under Kitchen Sink

I’ve wanted to clear out under the sink for a while now…


What a mess…couldn’t find anything in there!

So this evening while I was waiting on the stew in the crockpot, I took a half hour and did it!  I have to admit that what finally lit that fire was Abby over at Just a Girl and Her Blog.  I did not have the time to be as thorough as she was- but I fully intend on eventually making the cleaning caddies that she did for each part of the house!

First I pulled  everything out on the floor and separated it into groups:  flooring, dishes, surfaces, miscellaneous.  This is also when I notice that big crack in the wall back there and made a mental note to get H to patch it!

Then I ransacked the house for some spare containers to have some division of space.

Below is what I accomplished at first:


Except that didn’t suit my organizational Happyness so then I re-arranged again:


Dish washing things front and center- because we need them constantly! Sponges, cleaning rags and trash bags in the drawer. Dish washing liquid on top.  Plant food behind because I only need it once a month!20130602-183050.jpgTo the left- Febreze and miscellaneous things like oven cleaner and WD-40 (because I can’t stand squeaky doors!)  That big jug back there is for the Mircle Grow water for my plants 🙂


To the right- floor cleaners in the back, surface cleaners up front, with the constantly used disinfectant wipes within hand’s reach!

So much better and it didn’t cost a thing!  And it only took 30 minutes to give me a little Happyness boost before I sat down to pay bills (not so much of a boost there).  So remember:  clear out, group together, and contain!

Thanks for visiting and Happyness to all!


I share at these parties!

    • I had a great weekend- how was yours? Thanks so much for the comment 🙂 I’ll be shooting for the bathroom cabinets this week I think!

      • My weekend was good! Our neighborhood pool opened, so we spent a lot of time down there with the kiddos. They LOVED it. 🙂 Have a great day, Misti!
