I spent most of Sunday putting away dishes and pans -- and god knows what we have collected over the years -- into some sort of semblance in our new cabinets. We have more cabinets than we've had before, but less space. Know why? Because the old cabinets were like big boxes, and you could cram stuff into every corner. Land Park homes have a lot of original cabinets that are spacious. The new cabinets come with sensible pull-out drawers, the things they can charge extra for. And they take up valuable space.
Fortunately, I found a spot for everything, even if some are out of my reach. You know what goes into those cabinets, right? The things my husband uses.
But I fear the bad news is we are down to one "junk" drawer. Sigh.
