We all have them.
Maybe you even have more than one.
(Okay, that would be ME!)
If your’s looks like ours, it is a natural disaster. What am I talking about?
Kitchen cabinets that are out of control.
Enough was enough and I knew it was time to take control over our
cabinet space once again. I decided to start with the Cereal/Cracker
Cabinet located above the microwave and oven. After a little shopping trip
to get the perfect sized plastic containers I needed, I was ready to tackle the
cabinet with fervour.
Organizing a Cabinet for Dry Goods
I have to say, the reason I started here was because we are “blessed” in
this area to get mealy mouths. Little bugs that get into dried goods like
rice and cereal, etc. Leaving the cereal in the original packaging wasn’t
working any longer. Here is what I started with…I am ashamed to show you,
but I have to share where I started so you can see the end result, right?
Can you find anything in there? I know I couldn’t. It was getting so bad I
could hardly shut the cabinet doors. I used a series of these Rubbermaid
Containers which are heavy-duty and inexpensive.

I love how these Canister Systems stack so perfectly and fit my cabinet to a T.
They are semi-translucent – and even though you can see what is inside,
I wanted to go a step further and label the containers so I could see at a
quick glance what I needed. (you know, old eyes!) 🙂
I used my new Epson LW-600P label printer to do this.
I am in love with this little gadget. It’s so easy to use. You simply
download the Epson app on your phone, and once you do – making labels
is a breeze right from your mobile. There are a range of paper tapes for
any organizing project or label needs. The label printer prints wirelessly from
your smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac. via Bluetooth.
I used the app on my iPhone…
It took literally about a minute to print all the labels I needed.
The Kit comes with an AC Adapator (or you can use batteries if no
outlet is nearby), and also includes several widths of label papers.
I used the “Can’t see worth a hoot” size label paper.
With very little effort, I went from a disaster of a cabinet, to this…
Nicely organized and easy to read containers…
The labels that came with the Kit were not self-adhesive, but you can order
peel away, clear labels, etc. I just used some tape to attach the labels.

My husband came in as I was making these labels. He said I was having
so much fun, I would be labeling everything. He was right. 😆
Now, I am off to see what else I can organize and
make labels for.
