If you remember, back in the beginning of the year, Olivia and I had the team at Horderly come and organize our lives. They cleaned out our closets, helped us organized our clutter and taught us out how to implement a few organization tricks to stay on top of things. Our kitchen might not be too big, but it was the only part of the house that Horderly didn’t’ touch – and it was apparent. We recently had them come back to help us keep our kitchen in order!
The left cabinet above the Nespresso machine houses all of our coffee & tea necessities. This is the perfect little coffee corner for making our drinks in the mornings. Above this is all of the boys’ protein products and the top level are our lower vases.
The middle cabinet holds all of our plates and bowls that are conveniently separated by sleek acrylic risers. Above this is our glassware and the top section is for paper goods and party needs. The plastic containers are so amazing for easy pull-down access and maintenance.
The right cabinet is the pantry. Here is where the oils/vinegar/spices and sauces/spreads are kept. They implemented labeled spice jars and organized them onto lazy susans for easy access. I love how our snacks are organized into categories: savory snacks (oversized bags), crackers/snack bars/dried fruit, breakfast/sweets. On the top shelf lives the canned goods, pasta/quinoa, rice, and baking needs.
The drawer below the sink was a huge transformation – this will make cleaning my apartment so much easier! This is where you’ll find all the cleaning products and extra trash bags. The silverware drawer is night and day from what it used to look like. I love how all the utensils, cooking gadgets, baggies/ towels are so neatly organized here – especially because this is the drawer we use the most often. Below this is where we keep cutting board, mixing bowls, baking sheets, etc.
Horderly also helped up organize our (tiny) laundry area with more pull out bins full of laundry needs.
And last but not least – the dreaded front closet that was an absolute sh*tshow at all times before they came to save the day. They implemented an over the door shoe rack for hats/gloves/scarves – which I thought was such a smart idea! All of our coats are separated with rod dividers and all hung on the same black felt hangers. Our suitcases are stored in this closet – which each have our small carry-on bags stored inside. Up above is where we keep the air mattress & extra bedding for guests.
Have you ever enlisted a professional organizer to help you de-clutter your living space? It’s one of those things I didn’t know I needed in my life until I went through the process with our closest – and now our kitchen! We love Horderly – check out their Instagram for some satisfying organization! If you’re in NYC, I’d highly recommend Horderly to take care of all your organizing needs. They also will travel too!
