Since we moved in September I have been organizing and planning. My kitchen is totally different then it was in my old house. I had a large open kitchen with plenty of storage. Our new farm house has a good size kitchen for most but it is a bit small for me with less cupboards.
I did not make a choice to live here based on the kitchen but based on the whole home and the 30 some acres of room to roam :-) My spice rack was another item that I left behind. Why? I wanted to revamp and refresh all my spices. Spices only last so long and if you do not use them up you best toss them out.
I am browsing spice racks and man oh man there are a lot to choose from. First I look at my kitchen and decide where to place the kitchen spice racks I want to make sure to keep it away from the heat and out of the sun. I have huge windows above the sink and really do not have an area for spices on that wall. I have herbs growing on my window sill and am preparing a plan for my husband to build newer shelves to grow a larger assortment of lettuces. A wall spice rack is not going to work for me.
I have two cupboards that are lazy susans. This will be the best place to add a rack and it will ensure everything stays cool. With the holidays here I am making my lists for my kids and for myself. I cut out pictures and attach them to my fridge to add little hints. LOL, do you remember to leave little hints or ask for something special for yourself? Even a back rub can get gift wrapped with a little card to your sweetie.
