Every Thing But The Kitchen Sink! {Organization}

Well here we are at the middle of yet another week and it sure
is getting hot in here! 
The last few weeks have been oh-so-nice & cool
but we know the dreaded 100 degree hit will be here any minute
We finally got our A/C fixed and so we think we 
are ready to tackle the dog days of summer.
 I have been crazy busy with work and wrapping things up there and growing my photography business!!
By the way have you checked out my photography website?
What?! You haven't? Well go on over there and see
what I've been up to

As soon as I'm outta my current full time job I will be posting some cool tips and tricks over on my photo blog so you have to follow me there too :)
I'll have some cool giveaways there as well ;)
Speaking of giveaways, I have one in the works to start later this week so keep checking back to enter. 
And don't forget to share my blog with your friends.
I am keeping track of all my followers here, on facebook, twitter and pinterest so be sure to follow everywhere to get in on some extra entries.
Ok, now to the nitty gritty.
And I mean GRITTY.
Forever I have wanted to organize the cabinets under my kitchen sink.
And I finally got the nerve to tackle it.
First of all, let me tell you that you absolutely have to purge, purge, purge.
Take out anything that you haven't used in the last year.
I went in there and found junk I didn't know I had or why I had it.
I started off by taking everything out.
After trashing most of it, sorting the stuff that belongs out in the garage (that's another BIG project I need to work on )
and then finding out that we have a leak, I started to plan on 
how to put everything back together.
Now, let me tell you, try to use anything you have on hand to 
organize this dreaded space.
In my case I pulled out some cute pots and pails to contain certain things and then I just bought the 
hanging shelving at Home Depot and the sliding shelves
at WalMart. 
I think they were each $10. 
I also used a brightly colored vinyl table cloth that cost me around $4. I measured the inside of the space then cut it to size. This was to brighten it up a bit and also to catch any wetness until we can replace the leaky faucet.
Here are the before and afters:

shelves on the door with a little pot to hold my pot scrubbers
and you can see my homemade chalk paint in that bottom little jar.

 Big Difference
I mean that part of our home is never going to be a pretty place.
But at least now I don't cringe every time I open it.
Everything is within easy reach
I can SEE what I am looking for and
my cute little craft jars are easily found.

I have tons more organizing to do. 
And I have it all planned this summer {between photo shoots}
What have you been up to?
