4 Ways to Organize Your Kitchen:

The Gina Kent Group, Gilbert, AZ:

Check out these 4 tips that will help organize your Kitchen:

All mom’s can agree that somehow our kitchens become a catchall room.  When we come home, the mail goes in a stack on the counter, along with papers from the kids’ backpacks.  Whenever we find a knick knack or thingamajig around the house, where does it go?  Yup . . . you guessed it, it gets tucked away in some drawer in the kitchen.  Then one day we realize that our kitchens have become overrun.  Here are some great ideas that can help you get your kitchen back in order.

1.  The Dreaded Junk Drawer.  Let’s face it the junk drawer is a necessity, but that doesn’t mean it has to be messy.  You can easily and inexpensively find little storage boxes that fit nicely into a drawer.  You can purchase a few that can be used to hold different items.

2.  Sigh . . . Tupperware Lids.  Have you ever had to dig everything out of a cabinet trying to find the lid to a Tupperware dish? It’s so frustrating.  You can find a CD rack and use that to divide the different size/shape lids nicely.

3.  Get Appliances off the Counters.  Appliances take up so much counter space.  Clear your counters by getting an appliance caddy installed in one of your lower cabinets.

4.  Under the Kitchen Sink.  This is the place we typically just throw household cleaners, then shut the cabinet door and try to forget the mess hidden away.  You can purchase some clear storage bins to store rags and sponges.  Then you can purchase a rack that you can place your everyday cleaning products on (in their caddy).

Excellent Review of House Painters, Gilbert, AZ

The Gina Kent Group, Gilbert, AZ:

Review of House Painters, Gilbert, AZ:

A couple of weeks ago, I had a local company, George Johnston Painting, come out to paint my home.  I always worry about quality of paint jobs because my home has wood siding, and the planks needed to be sealed to prevent moisture.  After they were finished, I realized that I didn’t need to be worried at all.

I was so impressed with their quality of workmanship.  During the 2 days of work, the crew pressure washed, taped off all the windows, sealed all the planks, painted the house, mailbox, and the stucco walls in my back yard.  Their level of communication was excellent.  The crew worked efficiently, like a well oiled machine, they were fast and extremely detailed.  On top of all that, they were courteous too . . . they referred to me as ma’am when they addressed me.  Hahaha, I felt like I was in the South! 😉

Here’s a Before/During and After:

If you are in need of Interior/Exterior Painters, I highly recommend using George Johnston!
