So I am finally living in my new place, and totally loving it.
I had a subletter for the summer, so all the communal areas are already moved in to and full of stuff, and everything is pretty disorganized. As my first real, grown-up (not college) house, I really want it to feel like a home, not a hodge-podge of stuff, so I am trying to decide what I want to do to help get everything organized.
The kitchen has almost zero storage space, so the first thing we are going to need is a cabinet with doors for dry food storage. I think I am going to buy some cute glass spice jars from Target, which are more sustainable than the plastic ones (because now I can buy bulk spices) and much cuter. I am also going to get some magnetized hooks to hang oven mitts off of to free up some drawer space. And I am going to figure out a way to organize all the pots and pans so that they aren't all thrown in together, stacked up on top of each other, so that to get one thing out you have to move everything else.
For the bathroom I want to get a glass soap dispenser, that will be more sustainable, and cuter than the grimy plastic one we have now. I also want to get a cute toothbrush holder, but that isn't something we need, just something I want :P
The living room needs some pillows to help tie the mismatched furniture together, and we also need one more small chair of some sort to complete the room.
In the dining room I want to buy some bar stools to go along the island that it shares with the kitchen, so that whoever is cooking can have company :)
And then up the stairway and down the hallway I want to make fake picture frames out of poster paper and poster board, and put up a bunch of photos.
That is my plan for this house. I am excited to get started transforming it, as soon as our subletter officially moves out :D
