The Back-to-School-Ready Kitchen

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Tiffany Carboni added this to End the School-Lunch-Prep Chaos
This year I've vowed to stop the lunch-making madness once and for all by way of a bona fide lunch management system. I've taken over a cabinet centrally located between the fridge and the fruit display. This embarrassingly simple solution took me 20 minutes to implement, and the results will save me loads of time in the months to come. Rollout trays allow me to retrieve lunch prep materials, including newly purchased lunch boxes that we've paired with old (and still working) components from last year's Bento-Ware Laptop lunch boxes. Our stainless steel Klean Kanteen collection has served us well over the past four years of school lunches, and with fresh new sport caps, they will continue to do so for years to come. The bottom drawer contains my backup supplies for when the children inevitably forget their lunch boxes at school. I'm happy to say that I've finally learned to use only items that can go in the dishwasher every night or, in the case of these lunch bags from Target made of wet-suit material, in the washing machine at the end of the week.

Don’t forget the lunches. Part of your children’s routine should be emptying their lunch bags and putting them away — wherever you decide.End the School Lunch Chaos

Great idea - a dedicated lunch press to house the lunch boxes & everything you need for packed lunches. I prefer the 'Nude Food Movers' - specifically the all-in-one ones - to a lunch bag & separate boxes.

Add to ideabook by Annie McElwain Photography Here's a fairly minimalistic corner, but I see several hundred dollars in books alone, not to mention the bed, bedding, light, curtains and hardware. And that's not all. She also keeps separate inventories for books, videos and music as well as separate lists for electrical panel, major repair, redecorating, gardening and major medical expenses plus lending. All of this is in searchable Excel documents, and each item has columns for category, room, item, brand, model, serial, price or value, and date acquired. The only addition I would suggest is one more column to indicate whether the item was a gift or purchased, because the insurance company will want to know. Jane assures me it's an easy 15-minute update every year; she likes to do it first thing after the holidays, when she naturally acquires new things. When I asked her how she backs up the info, she said, "It's a computer document, but usually there's a recent downloaded copy that we store in our safe. Sometimes we get sloppy, but it's never very far outdated." I can only imagine what "sloppy" looks like to Jane. A box of cotton swabs omitted? I can't even hazard a guess.
