Kitchen Storage Dilemma

At the moment, I am elbow deep in kitchen organization.

As you can see,

 some of the glasses that were stored in the back of a cabinet

 have gotten a little dusty.

I don’t know if I am more horrified with myself at the moment

for posting for the world to see this.  

Or if I am more horrified at myself

for letting a bunch of margarita glasses go unused

 for such a long period of time!

Either way, I am on a kitchen cleaning/organization frenzy!

This cabinet up above my microwave is in the middle of a “cleaning demolition” at the moment!  The bottom shelf has become a dumping ground for pens, crayons, scissors…all kinds of junk.  There are things in there that really don’t belong in the kitchen… But today I am tearing into the cabinet and getting things back in order.  

But as I am cleaning,

and discovering that many of the unused glasses have gotten dusty

I am wondering how most people store their glasses.

I store mine right side up.

These everyday glasses get used constantly.

I have been to some homes that store glasses upside down 

and sometimes I question the cleanliness of the glass rim.

Maybe they have shelf liners that they keep very clean though…

Who knows…

But maybe people question the cleanliness of mine

being right side up…

Either way, I was wondering…

How do you store your glasses?

Now that I have stalled enough,

I am back to cleaning…

Thanks and have a wonderful day!

  4. I store mine right side up but I frequently have to pre-wash glasses before I use them, unless they're the everyday glasses. It's a shame that your margarita glasses aren't getting used more frequently.
