I've Dun-Dun-Dun Gone Nuts

Last week, because of the mice, I removed my baking toys from the cupboards under the sink and yesterday, I yanked my cleaning stuff from under the prep station.

But ... (and this is the BEST bit), because I did a killer job decluttering last year, I was able to find room for everything. This is heaven people.

As for the lower cupboards in the kitchen, those are on the demo list. Don't need them. Don't want them. They gotta go.

PS: Mini-vids below.

  1. I'm not sure what your future plans are, but in your decluttering/rearranging/remodeling you might want to consider what a future buyer down the road will want when it comes time to resell. I, for one, would NEED those cabinets :-)

    1. I find that too many folks think about the next buyer and not enough about themselves. But not us, we live in our space the way that suits us.

  3. My hubby got me the complete season of Mad About You, too! (for Christmas). :)

    As for what that is... Mashed potatoes seems too easy. How about mashed parsnips?

    1. Took me years to get to the point that I started to declutter, so for sure, not an overnight process.

  8. Oh you are deliciously nuts!
    I mean that nicely, I just love your video's they make me smile.

    What am I looks like mashed potato, but I don't think it is.

  9. I don't see a video. My screen is just blank. I wonder if it's because I'm on an iPad?

  11. I got rid of my woks and I keep needing them. I couldn't do what you have done. Reselling is a point to consider too.

    1. Me too. Great fun that show.

      The lower cupboards won't be there as they are now, or, that's the plan. Going to make the space more functional and personal to our tastes and needs. I'll send pictures when we get started.

    1. The counters won't be there, the way that they are now. Going to make the space functional. I'll post pictures when we get started, which will be awhile from now.

  17. Mice are a constant problem here, but we've found ways to thwart these pests. We've had this hole made around the water pipes when the new cabinets went in and finally my husband put wire screen down so they don't get into our drawers.

    1. Excellent idea. Thanks. Glad it worked for you. We still have to open up behind a few places. Ack.

  18. What are you planning to do with the space when you remove the lower cupboards in the kitchen? Are you going to create a more functional layout for yourself? That would be cool.

    These videos are so much fun! I like that you are nutty. Nutty people are fun :)

    1. Yes! That's it. Much more functional to go with my lab/kitchen/videos and photography. Think tiny home function but in our trailer. You nailed it!

  19. Great about the cupboards, gotta love losing a cupboard or drawer.
    Sorry Ivy, your videos don't show up on the Ipad, maybe something to do with Adobe Flash or something ? I'll see them on the PC later.

    1. I cannot view it on my tablet either. But hopefully, when I start doing full videos, everyone will get to see those.
