I started this project by giving myself limits. I used the top shelf in the buffet for my favorite cookbooks that I actually use. The bottom shelf is for our blog information and family recipes. My first rule in throwing away was to throw away any loose papers, you know the internet recipes, magazine, newspaper recipes or those free recipe brochures that I've picked up at the grocery store. Next were the recipe books that I haven't touched in the last year (or ever), I am donating those. Remember to picture what you want it to look like in the end. By the time I was finished I was left with only the items that I use or those that have a special meaning to me.

Even though this can be a time consuming project, once you are finished it's worth it! This was the last organizing project left in my kitchen. I love the feeling when everything is sorted and organized. So get started before the weather is too nice, you can do this!! And don't forget to share your organizing tips with us, we love to hear from you!
Love and peace,
