Simplify Sunday

Happy New Year!  I love the New Year. It means new starts, new beginnings. It's the perfect time to commit to organizing and simplifying ; )

I would love you to join me on this adventure. If you have done any organizing/simplifying, please share it with me in the comments.
  
SO...
We had our food spread through out the kitchen. I used to think it was a good idea to keep the "snacks" up high in hopes I would eat less, because they weren't convenient to get. Yea...that was a fail. 

I was proud that the organizer didn't have to touch the microwave stand. That's where I keep baking things like flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, cake mixes etc.
 

Across the room, is another little closet. It had cereals on the top shelves, RANDOM stuff (computer case, dog grooming kit, water jug, my ballet shoes??, and some misc. stuff that we needed to return to people).

Now that closet holds all of my bake ware and cake/cupcake displays. I love that I can put all the pans in like books instead of stacking. Brilliant! Believe it or not, I got rid of some cake pans. I kept two rectangular and the basic set of rounds. The organizer questioned me keeping so many, but I legitimately use them. I LOVE to bake and decorate cakes.

So now, all the food is in one area of the kitchen. Woo hoo!
Notice the bins to hold vitamins and packages of nuts and berries. I usually needed the step stool in order to search for the right package. Now, I can just pull down the bin (with out the stool). 
We now keep the reserve food right above these cupboards instead of above the fridge.
