Sometimes I choose the reclaimed space, sometimes it chooses me. It chose me this time. I had the day off on Tuesday so I set to work cleaning my kitchen. I really hate to clean.

My kitchen honestly stays pretty organized. Everything has a home. Smaller bowls are nestled inside larger ones. Like items are stored together. My kitchen only has five overhead cabinets.
I have about seven lower cabinets and only four drawers. And those drawers are little ones! Also, I am only five feet tall. Working in a kitchen is a height challenge for me. I can barely reach my second shelves so anything above what I can easily reach is storage for items I very seldom use.
Below are some older photos to show you how I have created more work and storage space on the other side of my kitchen.
So, there's a tour of my kitchen! I didn't really reclaim much. But, I enjoyed what did. Now, if I could just keep it clean!
See what's going on with Jacqueline this week in this series.
