Kitchen Organization...

Those of you who use Pinterest will understand that!  :)

A long while ago, I purchased some items to help organize and make the best use of the limited cabinet space in my smallish kitchen.  One of the items was a pot lid rack made to be mounted inside of a cabinet door.

When I went to attach it to the door, I noted two things:  1)  the screws to attach the rack were too long and would go all the way through even the thickest part of the door;  and 2)  the inside of my cabinet doors are NOT flat, so finding an area to attach it so it was flat and all screws went through the thickest part of the door was not possible.

Because of these two unfortunate turn of events, the rack has sat unused...mocking me.  Well...let it be known I will NOT be beaten by a simple lid rack after I saw something similar on Pinterest and pinned it.  

Ta-da!!!  3M Command Hooks!!!  

No holes in the door, the rack can be mounted on even the thinnest part of the door, and they are easily removable if I decide to move it!!!  (Yes, Erin, I know that some of the Command Hooks are not straight, but my OCD can live with it!  Take a deep breath...)    :)

I just noticed from the pictures that it looks like the second and third lids are not in order of size.  Now THAT will have to be corrected!  LOL  

And now...for the Grandma section of the blog...
Two new pictures of my grandsons, Andrew & Alex!!  

Andrew is an EXCELLENT big brother...very loving with Alex.  Loves to give him kisses and hold him!  :)

Alex has learned to smile!!! 

I put the last of the apples and pears in the crock pot to make pear-apple sauce!  I'll let you know how it turns out!



  1. Would you believe that I didn't notice the command hooks being crooked until you pointed it out? LOL And I didn't know the lids not being in order by size, also, until you pointed them out. My CDO is slipping....I'm gonna have to have a talk with it. lol

    1. Actually, the lids WERE in the correct order. I checked! LOL Those two lids are just so close in size that the trapazoidal shape of the rack gave it an optical illusion of the lids being in the wrong order.

  2. I am on the lookout for one of these now! Your grandsons couldn't be any cuter, and I am so glad that baby boy is doing well!
