For many people, a new year is often accompanied with a desire to organize--this will be the year, I get my files in order, clean out the closets, etc., etc., etc. For me, this took the form of organizing my kitchen. It's no secret that I don't especially enjoy cooking. I CAN cook, but in most cases, I would much rather be sitting at my sewing machine, or creating a new scrapbook or even taking photos. That's where my creativity lies---not in recipes.

But, with my new oven and much nicer cookware, I'm finding it a bit more fun than in the past, as long as it doesn't take up too much of my time. Hence the kitchen organization. My lower cabinets are pretty full. Not horribly disorganized---I really do know where everything is. But, in order to get to some items, I have to completely remove the contents of that shelf. And the bottom shelf---well, I might as well stand on my head to get to most of those things.

Just before Christmas I installed a new chrome sliding shelf for my cookware and I love it!! But, it was pretty pricey and the single ones they had in stock locally weren't the right measurements for my other cabinets. I began searching online for something similar and found Roll-Out Kitchen Drawers. After some research and measurements, I decided to order them----not only are they affordable, but the shipping is free.

Today, I installed them. Talk about easy! All you do is align the drawer base and screw it in place with 4 screws. In about 2 hours, I had cleaned out my cabinets, installed the drawers and replaced everything.

I even filled up one of the boxes with items to take to Goodwill (I think it is safe to assume that I will NEVER use a hand-crank apple peeler!).

I still have some scrubbing to do, shelf paper to repair and paint touch-ups (someday), but in the meantime, anything I can do to streamline the cooking process is a welcome change for me!
