Below is a photo of my kitchen and you can tell how small it is! As I shared before, I try to keep my counters empty, see here. Yet, some appliances are used more frequently than others…like a toaster.
My toaster is in plain sight…but can you find it?
I learned this tip from my friend, Paula. She kept her toaster in a rectangle basket and stored it in one of her cupboards.
I wrote down the measurements of my toaster and found a tray of the proper dimensions on which to keep it. When I want to make toast I pick up the tray and move the toaster to the counter. The tray traps all of the crumbs and keeps my counter and storage area clean.
Did you find it? It’s right next to the bread maker on top of the china cabinet. The slides are facing the wall.
There is an oval tray under the bread maker to make moving it back and forth easier. It is also a good way to store your turkey platter or other large trays.
