We have a rather small kitchen and I desperately needed more storage room for the six of us. As least, that's what I thought! But instead of taking the old kitchen out and buy a new one, I started decluttering the place, like I did in the rest of the house. I first started to use the empty kitchen window sills. I bought 18 large Ikea glass jars. They were just the right size and I love the look of them.
They contain almost all my dry food.
Leaving me with an almost empty drawer!
I also found some surprises. These bottles had "tax-free" labels, so they must have been bought when I still worked at NATO and that is more than 15 years ago.
Then I started to sort out the kitchen equipment and tools. I threw away everything broken, incomplete or not functioning and I only kept what I really needed.
