re: dusting. If I could have a kitchen like this I would be *ecstatic* to swirl around the kitchen 3 times a day, with a feather duster and wipe clean all my sparkling, Edwardian open shelves. Seriously. No kidding.

1. Shop small and frequently so you don't need too much storage space for food items.
2. Keep the kitchen tidy, the decks clear, everything will look larger.
3. Store infrequently used pots and serving pieces elsewhere if you have space in the rest of your home.
4. Don't buy kitchen gadgets. Invest in good basics - they will get you far.
5. If you are cooking for a crowd, use a nearby dining room table or cleared off desk with protective padding as a juggling surface for bowls that need to sit and/or cool at different stages of the cooking process.

If you can hang uppers over a peninsula for extra storage space. Glass on both sides helps the cabinet feel less intrusive.

I've been on the Prairie Moon Nursery site today shopping for next spring's seeds. Looking forward to seeing more of these "good guys" as the native plants grow!

Love this article. I also save all the wrappings we receive and store them in a nice box - never had to buy actual gift paper (and this year we used a lot of them to make our 'christmas tree'). Finally, a great tip I found out last month: UPS stores apparently welcomes donations of large cardboard boxes, packing peanuts and air-filled bags. Happy New Year!

Ive been quite good at keeping on top of things. Its the food that's the issue. Boxes of chocs, cake etc. I think ill hand them into our local foodbank.
