Corralling in the Kitchen

Since Hubster and I decided to purchase the house we currently live in, we have started to organise ourselves and are trying to sort things so they are just the way we want them.

The first stop for us is the Kitchen. We’ve already installed this handy dandy kitchen shelf.

Photos, menus, recipes, other assorted papers stuck all over it.
