Kitchen Inspiration :: Organize and Declutter

"If you can organize your kitchen, you can organize your life." -- Louis Parrish

I find these words immensely encouraging.  I am determined to organize and remodel my kitchen and henceeverything else will fall into place.  Right?!   Frankly, I amaze myself that I've been able to function with such disorder.  

But there is hope, check out this handy kitchen caddy.  Isn't it fabulous!

I'm in awe of those who organize with flair. These ideas from Real Simple look doable, even for me.  

One thing missing from my kitchen is a dishwasher.  I generally find I don't need one with our small household, but when I'm canning fruits and veggies in the summer, a dishwasher especially one with a sterilizing function would be nice.  As my kitchen is rather small and awkward, one that fits under under the sink would prove handy.  The dishwasher is a full 24" wide, but it obviously requires that you have a shallower sink.  So, if I head in this
direction I won't be able to have one of those lovely deep farmhouse sinks, but I would eliminate clutter problem. An alternative is a slim 18" model that would fit in the space of one cabinet.  Of course, with this model I'd still have to figure out how to organize the nightmare under the sink....
