I’ve wanted to blog about simple living for quite a while now but with the start of my Oahu furniture refinishing business, moving to Hawaii and switching over from the military spouse blogging community I haven’t had time to do so. With that said, I know that I love gathering ideas for simple living, for boundaries and for intentionally focusing on faith and family. If you work for yourself or if you have a job that you take home with you, you know how hard it is to put up boundaries between work and family.
Today I want to share my kitchen food wire basket idea.
Now that we’ve gone gluten-free, we are eating a lot more fresh fruit and vegetables. I cook almost every night and use garlic and onions (and avocados) at least three times a week when cooking.
I found this wire basket at T.J. Maxx for under $20. All I did to make this food basket was place a vintage white colored kitchen towel at the bottom. Just make sure to check the veggies once and a while to make sure they are still fresh and rotate the old ones with the new ones.
Each week, I fill the basket with fresh vegetables that I use to cook dinner. It’s so nice and convenient to just grab and onion and some garlic right from the counter. Plus I have more room in my refrigerator.
I also look how it gives the kitchen a fresh, farmhouse feel.
