Kitchen and Linen Closet Organization

I'm the president of organizing and decluttering in my household.

Ever since its warmed up outside I've been tackling one small area at a time to work my spring cleaning magic on. So far its working wonders.  

But progress is sloooow, especially when there is a toddler calling your name every ten seconds. I wish I could just snap my fingers and it would all get done.

So the other day I decided to spruce up my rice and lentils cabinet in the kitchen and this is how it ended up looking.

Pretty neat, if I say so myself! 

And in case you are wondering, we eat  a LOT of lentils in my vegetarian household. Not only are they nutritional powerhouses, but they are quick and easy to prepare and super yummy to boot.

Lentils play a starring role in Indian cuisine. A typical desi meal in my house includes rice, lentils and vegetable curry. 

Need another look? :)
About two years ago, I went berserk in IKEA and picked up 2 dozen of these sleek containers.

At that time I wasnt sure how I was going to use them, but they turned out to be the best investment ever.

They offer easy access while cooking and are well made. I use them to store a ton of grains and other food items all over my kitchen.

The very next day, I straightened out my linen closet. 

Here's a peek:

Seeing all those stacks of neatly folded sheets and towels makes me smile.

Now I need to tackle the rest of the house!
