The Quest for an Organized kitchen

I am always re-organizing my kitchen in the attempt to find the perfect drawer or cupboard for all of my kitchen gadgets, equipment etc...
It's just what I do. Sometimes it will just come to me.... why don't I have the (whatever item it happens to be) in this drawer, that makes more sense. Then it all gets changed and my poor family has to suffer for weeks until they get used to the new place I have cleverly decided works better. Last week I had one of those moments when it came to me, I have always loved this cupboard in the laundry room, which is conveniently located right off the kitchen. Wouldn't that be a perfect place for my bake ware??? And so it began...

Top shelf mini cheesecake pans, loaf pans, square baking pans, batter dispenser
Second shelf 9x13 pans, round cake pans, mini angel food cake pans
and my favorite shelf, cookie cutters in drawers by season, half sheet pans, muffin pans

In the drawers

cutters, and molds

tips, couplers, pastry bags, and food coloring

sanding sugars and sprinkles

birthday candles, cellophane bags, party bags, and sucker sticks

and finally cupcake liners.
Now doesn't this make more sense???
I think if I didn't work at the kitchen store I
would be a kitchen organizer, that would be fun!
