How many Water Bottles do two people need???

Organize and Simplify my new mantra...next up the water bottle cabinet.  This cabinet has always been chock full of bottles, and even when kids moved out and took theirs with them, the cabinet seemed to always be in a state of overflow...How does that happen??

This is way too many for just two people...

And along with the water bottles come the lids...a whole drawer full.

The bottom shelf house the overflow water bottles and these items.  The camelbak's have gone to live in another place, at least for now... the multicolored bowls, I think I bought for a party along time ago...

The After:

Look, even some space on the shelf, notice lids now in container!

plates are for dinners on the deck, and small potluck, nicer and more sturdy than paper.

TA DA!!!! a nearly empty drawer.

I am making my way around the kitchen.   Then on to the rest of the house, the thought makes me tired and energized all at the same time!

Happy Simplifying!

sew many ways


  1. You are doing a great job,thanks for sharing at Creative Mondays :)

  2. Your post title made me laugh out loud. I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes I think certain items (like drink cups or water bottles) multiple like rabbits when you aren't looking.

    1. You are so right Jules!! Must be some kind of secret going on in the cabinet! Thanks for the comment!

  3. You did such a good job getting rid of all those bottles! I had the same problem with sippy cups. I finally got rid of them when my youngest was around 5 yrs old. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. Great job! The thought of clearing out my kitchen cabinets is exhausting so I'll just go sew something instead. That uses up fabric that would otherwise take up room in the fabric bins. Is that as logical as it's supposed to be?
