We've spent a lot of time over the past few weeks just weeding out and paring down. My motto for this year was "SIMPLIFY"...everything!! We've thrown out, donated, and consigned a ton!!! And, it feels good. Really good.
I rearranged my kitchen a bit in the process to make it work better for us. My favorite is our new "Coffee Bar". We had additional cabinets added to a wall that originally only had a buffet/hutch on it. Now it houses our extra dishes, glassware, entertainment items and our snack pantry. We weren't really utilizing the counter in that space since it is on the wall opposite the sink, dishwasher, and microwave/oven. So, I decided to move our new coffee maker over there along with the things we use daily for our cup of coffee/tea. Oh, and I am loving our new Breville K-Cup machine (had an older Keurig, but it was so loud...this baby is super quiet). Now we are utilizing this counter top space, and it freed up space on the other side where I prepare our meals and pack lunches daily.

Here's the before...
Thanks for hanging in there with me!!
