Weekend I’d Forget
I have reached a weekend where there wasn't anything too spectacular that occurred.
So if I bore you with the simplicity of this Weekend I'd Forget, I apologize.
I've never been too big on shopping at Ikea. It isn't anything against Ikea. They have some good products, a lot of which can be obtained at a cheap price. My limited shopping there might reside on the fact that most locations are at least a half hour away from my home.
I found a need to go to one though, and Saturday Hubby took me there.
One day, I will have the perfect kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a wide open section just for my spices. Until that day, I have been managing my spices in the most cluttered of ways that although I could have pictured it for you to see, I have opted not to. It's such a mess.
I decided I should look into a spice rack to make my life easier and save my kitchen from the aggravated screams of frustration I let out whenever I need to search for an obscure spice hidden among the rest.
Spice racks are down right expensive.
The best price I could find was $70 and I wasn't even thrilled with the shape or color.
Then I found Ikea's individual racks at $3.99 each. Sure, they need to be assembled. Sure, the wood is probably cheaper than the fancy spice racks I've researched. But I can make it what I want it to be.
We bought five and I'm going to paint them mustard yellow to match my Kitchen Aid mixer and teapot that are both the same color.
It's going to be awesome.
It's the little things in life that excite me.
