I need this thread- I feel like I have 20,000 pyrex casserole dishes- but I don't know which ones to get rid of , we use all the smaller ones now, but i want to keep bigger ones around too for when family gets bigger.

I also have a habit of using every dish in my house when I make a meal. (Ok that came out as every fish in my house when i make a mess). .. i don't know why I feel I need six bowls, to get a casserole in the oven.

Re: Kitchens - share your pics and offer some wisdom! :)

I did good today, ladies!!!

-4 of my 6 cookie sheets. I always use 6 for my "big Christmas baking day". 2 loaded with dough balls, 2 baking, 2 cooling. Well.. I'll just invest in parchment paper. lol. Duh.
-Brita filters and pitcher, since we never remember to use it anyway.
-4 glass bowls that really only function as a jelly bowl (little bowls on a pedestal thing). I bought them because I LOVED eating jelly out of individual pretty bowls at my grandma's as a kid. Well, my kids don't care yet... I'll make jello in my correlle bowls. lol.
-two vases (I kept 2 - one for a large bouquet, one for a small one, like a bud base).
-old crockpot. I keep two because there was this one time that I needed two... 6 years ago.
-wine corks (every time we drink wine, I save the cork. That project will never get done anyway. lol)

I just have to wait until we have some money for some good pyrex... my Tupperware/gladware is the next to go!

Well, I had an adult tantrum one day when I attempted to find a matching container and lid. I threw EVERYTHING out of the cabinet onto the floor (literally tossed it across the kitchen). Looked at DH and told him to throw it all out LOL. He put it in a garbage bag in the garage and after a couple of months we brought in a few, then a few more. We are now close to a year from that episode so whatever is left in that bag I'm going to sell on craigslist.

Other stuff that I had multiples of I just put half or some other amount of them in a box. Since I, of course, didn't need them for the most part after a few months those left too.

I find that the kitchen is especially prone to gathering things and needs attention every year or so.

Oh and for the Pyrex, we started with 2 sets of 3 (rectangular for better stacking, space saving). And then decided little by little if there was a size or something we found we used more of or were missing.

Re: Kitchens - share your pics and offer some wisdom! :)

I got rid of a lot of things that were seasonal. Yes,at Christmas, it is nice to have Christmas dishes, but I felt silly keeping them for the once or twice I was using it, when I had other dishes that look nice, too.

As for Tupperware, I have 2 small bowls, 2 mediumish bowls, 2 small rectangles, 2 larger rectangles, and 2 loaf pan shaped Pyrex with lids, and that is it for storage. If those are full, then we eat leftovers the next day. We rarely use them all.

If I remember, I will come back and add to this, but I am out of time right now.

Here's a pic of my kitchen. I agree - it's the hardest part of the house to keep minimalist!

Love your kitchen!! We are starting to minimize everything and I need inspiration! Tupperware is one of our biggest problems. We both work full time so the smaller ones come in handy for taking lunch to work.

Thank you!

Regarding tupperware, I store it in one cabinet. I found this system affordable and helpful. I just use 2 of these systems, and gave away all other tupperware...what's great about this is it's easy to stack, and even the lids stack together beautifully...
