How to Organize Vitamins and Medicines in the Kitchen

Most of my organizing clients want an organized home not only because it looks clean and tidy, but also because it makes life more efficient and comfortable.  When I organize in people’s homes, I like to think of storage space as “real estate,” and one of the most desirable places in most houses is the kitchen.  The kitchen is usually centrally located in the house, it’s the hub of all activity, and because of this, it’s not just a place for food and cooking implements to live.  Having a dedicated storage area for medicine and vitamins in the kitchen can be a game changer for people.  It allows them to quickly find supplements and daily medication, and it means that first aid supplies are always easy to find in case of minor cuts & burns in the kitchen.  Also it’s a daily reminder to take any necessary pills with meals or before running out the door for a busy day.

organizing natasha's pantry

My friend (and C&S partner!) Natasha just moved and asked me to help her plan a pantry system that wouldn't dissolve into mayhem after a few months of use (as pantries often do).  She's lucky to have a pantry space with pull out drawers, but even with this luxury, without a system these drawers could quickly become overloaded with food.  Check out what we did below, hopefully it will help you get your pantry in shape, too.  (And if you still feel overwhelmed, you can hire me to come do it for you!).

how to keep your teeth white (naturally)

I like white teeth.  Both on myself, and on others.  But mostly on myself.  And people I date.  I've tried using gels and lights and strips and UGH can we please talk about how that makes your teeth quickly become averse to anything hot or cold, NO THANK YOU.  Thus, I've had to take measures into my own hands.
