I tackled our cabinets. They were a mess. I neglected to get before photos of everything, but I think you can imagine what they all looked like. I also used this week as an opportunity to finish the last 10% of unpacking in the kitchen. HOORAY!!!

I moved a rack that I picked up at a garage sale (I got 3 racks for $1) to the top of the fridge and moved all my baking gear up there. I also moved my mixer to the top of the fridge, because I thought it looked kind of decorative. Also, note my new canning thing-a-majig that Diesel got me for Christmas. I asked for it, and am hoping to learn to can this year. I don't foresee ANYTHING going wrong with that plan. All the plastic bags are now neatly constrained to a box under the sink.
I somehow didn't take before pictures of the cabinets, but they were all in disarray. Packed too full of stuff and not well laid out. Now they are neat and tidy.
What's that? you're wondering why I have a pair of jack-o-lantern people up on my cabinets? That is because in my family, we have a little Christmas tradition (started by my sister Jordan) called "The Ugly Gift." When you receive the ugly gift, you have to display it in a prominent, non-bathroom, location in your house for the following year (and then have to display it during all subsequent Christmases). Diesel received these beauties this year, so they will be gracing our kitchen cabinets for the next 11 months!
