I have 'kitchen things' on show in the kitchen so -
* I can find some items easily
* I can store more things that I haven't got room for in the cupboards
* I can dust and wipe shelves and surfaces more often!
Some of these 'things' are stored in Kilner jars because -
* I like them
* They are cheap at Ikea
* They look as though I know what I'm doing in the kitchen and show that it is a creative space!
Only little 'things' fit in these jars. The one's below are small jars that fit on the shelf below the wall cupboards - the larger jars are too tall. In them I have lentils, rice, additional nuts and fruits for muesli, chocolate coated raisins from Lidl ...
and Arborio rice.
In the 2 different topped ones I keep sugar and biscuits (once we've eaten half the packet).
Over the other side of the kitchen the tea bags, coffee and sugar are to hand for the brews.
The large jar has pasta inside and …
I found one more lurking on a higher shelf (I don't know when I put it there - it contains currants).
Some people like to hide things away to streamline the kitchen. I display and moan about the cleaning. My jars look good and are useful so I'll keep them for a while longer.
What's in yours?
