Today I rearranged some of my kitchen. I had a lot of things in the kitchen that I don't use very often and kept all my canned goods in the laundry room. After thinking about I decided to move all the things I hardly ever use into the laundry room and the canned goods into the kitchen.

I don't know why I never thought of this before. Every other house I have lived in had a pantry and I never had to put much thought into where the food was going to be stored. Maybe after being in this house for 4 years I will finally get it more organized.

Organization is very important when you live in an old farm house that doesn't have any closets and limited storage. I am currently rethinking how I have everything stored. I have done this occasionally since we have lived here and most of the changes I have made I have been very happy with.

This is my new food storage cupboard in the kitchen:

And this is what I did with all of my canning from this year:

I use to keep all of my cookbooks here but they have been moved to a bookcase in the living room. I think it looks pretty to display your home canned goods.

I also cleaned out the freezer in the back porch area and moved a lot of the vegetables that I froze this year out to the large freezer. I kept enough in the smaller one to get us through a few weeks and will replenish it before it gets too cold out.

So teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom
Psalm 90:12
