From Janet (The Gardeners Cottage), in Redlands, California:
Our house is old and small so storage is an issue. I'm a vegan so I don't eat many canned or processed foods. I also don't like a lot of clutter. I was a professional chef for many years and learned to work in small, tight spaces.
My spice drawer is the top right one, next to the stove.
All my dishes are stored above the sink and the drawers next to the sink area hold silverware, knives and kitchen towels.
The large bottom drawer holds big mixing bowls. The basket on top of the refrigerator holds my baking tins.
The pantry itself holds a small microwave, coffee pot, teas, pastas, oatmeal, nuts, beans, platters and my cookbooks.
