Here I go again with my organization ideas. I have tons of counter space, so more often then not they are filled with stuff. Stuff that I just care bare "putting away" because I use it so frequently. Along the lines of my "serve it up" post let's put like items together! Wooden spoons in one vase and metal spoons in another! Don't have a vase? Use a pitcher, mason jar, a basket or a box!
Stack those cutting boards that your always pulling out. Add a little green for some color and pull out your everyday spices.
Dishes! We've got dishes! No cabinet space? Use a decorative wooden box or wire basket and leave them out!
This one is my favorite! Fresh fruit and market veggies! No more cliche fruit bowl....show me a market! When you can see your fruit and veggies your more likely to cook with them.
