Our new house has a kitchen island, and while I’ve never had one before, I was excited to get it organized! There are two big cabinets so one holds storage containers while the other holds daily dishes.
For storage, I really like our safe Rubbermaid, Pyrex, and Bento containers. A plastic basket from the dollar store works well to corral the lids. Hey, in an allergy family, leftover containers are PRIME.
In the second cabinet, I have our daily dishes down low.
Know why? Because two little guys have learned to unload the bottom rack of the dishwasher every morning.
Miles does the silverware. And Graham, at age 4, has taken complete ownership of putting away all the plates and bowls.
It’s amazing what kids can do when put things to their level…literally and figuratively, ha ha!
