Thursdays Are Happiness Reports:
August--Being Organized in the Kitchen (08/18/2011)

Bpppllllltttttt! This week was an EPIC FAIL, as Darling Daughter would call it. I was so proud of myself for going to Lowe's and selecting an inexpensive version of what I really wanted for under cabinet storage in the kitchen. I decided since the pull-out shelf drawers that I really want are more expensive than we can budget right now, that I would get the dinkier version with its white coated wire baskets. WRONG!

One Option Of What I Really Want ($110 at Lowes)

Another Option of What I Really Want ($130 at Lowes)

What I tried to make myself want ($38 at Lowes)
Go ahead and laugh...I am laughing at its dinkiness too! You know that saying, "You get what you pay for?" I obviously paid for a crying break down on the kitchen floor. However, MyChad is a prince charming. He very calmly conferred that the double layer basket system would not fit into our current set up because of the existing half shelf but also because it was too small to really help with our clutter factor. Also, the baking pan organizer was too tall to fit in the cabinet as well. Always my number one biggest fan, Hubby Dearest then followed up with stroking my ego and bragging on me for being "determined to make progress." I loves my man!

He's smart as well as good looking too! Chad has a very reasonable plan...postpone this week's happiness project for a few weeks and put the money into my savings account until I can afford the organization I really want. So after a return trip to Lowe's (easiest return ever!), I just cleaned the kitchen. That still makes me happy! Well, at least until we get to cooking chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and homemade cream gravy. Darling Daughter had that mess cleaned up when I got home from work the next day. I love my girl!
