This is a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing - one of the reasons I don't buy special flour or grains is because I wondered how I'd keep them! But this is great, thanks!!

In the evening, after the dishes are done. After I wash the last dish, I get to sit down, relax, and enjoy the results of my cleaning efforts.

They do deliver - but it starts at $99 - at least that's what it starts at for the store in Canton. They really do need the trailers - I would spend so much more money there! And my Focus wouldn't be getting such a workout! ;-)

No, sadly - at least out of the two that I've been to, they don't have them.

Since being pregnant, I cannot drink coffee (it makes me sick). English breakfast with milk has been my go-to morning drink. It'll probably replace coffee for me, and I'm ok with that!

Oh my goodness - this just happened yesterday!!! My husband and I have a 2012 Ford Focus. I thought FOR SURE the Ektorp Loveseat with Chaise would fit. And it did... kinda. We had to unpack the boxes and pack everything tetris-style into our Focus - and we had one section strapped to the roof. Everyone was staring and I'm amazed we didn't get pulled over on our 2-hour ride home! (When we got home, we realized we had one extra arm & back cushion, but we were short the chaise support & a seat cushion - BOO!)

Fantastic use of the space! I don't have a nook to clean out and re-organize, but you've inspired me to tackle my laundry room!

I think my four-year old and I are going to be making some chocolate chip cookies for my husband, who works 6 days a week and deserves a treat! Meyer Lemons aren't in the stores around me just yet, but when they are... that Meyer Lemon Shaker Pie is on my to-do list!

I love the fact that I can steal so many of these ideas! I ,too, live in a 2-bedroom apartment with my husband and our 4-year old son - and we're expecting another in October. I love the idea of the open baskets above the cabinets!

Popcorn is my go-to snack. I also enjoy homemade granola bars with cranberries and walnuts.

I tried a new restaurant tonight! Had a delicious Reuben with a side of coleslaw. Mmm... it was so good!

Money is so, so tight for me right now - but I would love the Raspberry Ice or the Sea Glass. Gorgeous, and it'd get so much use in my kitchen. *Sigh* Someday...

Very good advice. A couple of days ago, my husband was going to make sloppy joes... and printed out a new recipe. Halfway through, he realized he didn't have ketchup or vinegar (two ingredients we don't use regularly). Needless to say, he's learned his lesson!
