Day one – kitchen clearout bootcamp

Goal: To achieve the luxurious feeling of being served by a butler, and/ having breakfast at a resort!

BEFORE photos

I had to make room, so started by throwing stuff out of four cutlery and bento drawers, and two utensil drawers, followed by shelves of a steel rack.


Because I had my cutlery in so many different places, to re-organize them I ended up clearing out and throwing out the contents of eight drawers, and two cupboards. Here are the AFTER PHOTOS Below…

FINALLY, I bought a “butler wagon” for under 3000 yen, got rid of cutlery drawers altogether, they will now be wheeled out by the “butler” at every meal to the table! I have wanted one for a very long time…tadaaaa….


Do you like the arrangement A above or B below? Cutlery on top of trolley, in the middle basket are jam, honey, parmesan, and in the bottom basket are nori and furikake toppings for Japanese dishes.
