I’m so excited to be hosting this blog party today with my sweet bloggy friend (and fellow Army wife) Toni Miller of Make Bake Celebrate! Toni and I have been dreaming about putting together this blog party for at least 6 months now and I’m thrilled that it’s finally here!

The Great Baking Closet Clean Out

Toni and I have teamed up with a handful of other bloggers to bring you The Great Baking Closet Clean Out! Each participating blogger has cleaned out their baking and/or crafting closet, taken lots of before and after pictures and have written up a post about how they did it. Some of us even set aside some of the stuff we don’t need anymore and are giving it away to you!

Along with individual blog giveaways… we’ve also got one GRAND PRIZE that one of you will win. $250 in prizes to help you clean out your closet! So enjoy my baking closet clean out… and make sure to visit all the participating blogs to get a glimpse inside their baking closets!

JC’s Baking Closet Clean Out!

 

TGBBCO-Before-1

I live in military housing here in Germany, so I didn’t get to choose the space that my baking supplies would live in.  I just had to deal with what I was given and improvise.  The main bulk of my supplies are actually kept in our front closet.  Half the closet has hanging coats and the other side shelving… this ended up being the perfect spot to store all my supplies. You can see in the photo above on the right that I’ve got a lot of storage bins already separating out my supplies… but over the last year or so, it’s gotten a little crowded.  Not everything had been put back in it’s bin, some things didn’t even have a bin and it just needed tidying up.

I recently acquired additional storage (as seen in the first photo on the left), but it had turned into a “catch-all” for baking chips/chocolate/candy, props and my Sistema storage containers.  I even had a cute piece of wall art that hadn’t been hung in the 8 months I’ve owned it.

TGBCCO-After-1

To tidy up my closet, I picked up a couple extra storage bins to hold my gel food coloring, the extra cookie cutters and all my new macaroon making supplies.  I took some of the baking pans out to make room for the new bins.  Now, everything has a home and it all fits nicely inside the cabinet! I used these Sterilite bins… I like them because they’re see-though and their lids have a latch!

I think my most favorite part about this entire process was being able to hang my cupcake & coffee picture and have a place to display my CakeSpy art and baking cookbooks!  My extra storage cabinet has been transformed into a cute little area for my styling/photography props and a home for my pretties!

The two pieces of art are CakeSpy originals.  One is of a cupcake falling in love with a cup a to-go coffee and the other are cupcakes drinking wine and martini’s outside of a bar.  LOVE both of these mini pieces of art from my friend Jessie at CakeSpy!

It feels really great to have a space that it not only cute… but completely functional and organized!

    I absolutely love organization ! It helps make life so much easier ! I would have to say my most favorite things I use to organize are tupperware bins .. in every size from small to huge ! I am also a big fan of shelves , cloth bins, wicker bins, see through jars … really anything I can find ! There is always room for organization improvement , I think we all get organized and then somehow over time .. we tend to get unorganized or start adding more to our collections and have to start all over. Its always fun to get to do the spring clean and organization … it helps us get that new feeling again, a change , an improvement and it is very rewarding !

    I have a few clear plastic containers that I stack on my pantry shelves. Seeing your pics gives me motivation to do more.

    Living in a small apartment, I have limited space. I use large plastic tub containers to organize all my different baking supplies and decorating supplies.

    I have clear plastic shoe boxes for cookie cutters with labels (I have a very handy label maker). I just got a “back-of-the-door” pantry organizer for sprinkles and sanding sugars.

    I have a few plastic bins for my decorations, cupcake liners, and colorings. My cookie cutter collection is in large plastic jars loosely organized by type. The rest of my equipment is spread all over the cabinets in my kitchen because it often does double duty for more than baking sweets.

    Such a good idea! My cupboard is such a mess… probably time to start organising!
