Tom and I decided last Saturday that the house we are currently living in just isn't working for us. We live on 20 acres and a huge house sits on it, and while it is beautiful and we are thankful to have such a nice place, it's just too big for me to keep up. It's also very remote. I spend about two hours a day just driving back and forth to school/errands/church etc., and with gas prices what they are... it's just too much.
So Monday we went to look at a new potential house which is much smaller. It sits on a hill so we can overlook the city (not that there's much to see), so we will be in the city but still feel out of the way. We decided to buy it on the spot. It's perfect for what we need for this stage of our family. It's a bit small, but smaller is easier to clean! The kitchen is really pretty but has about 1/4 of the storage I have now, so I'm going to have to be creative... being Primal means I cook a lot and use lots of different cooking items, so that'll be a little tricky, but I'm sure we'll figure something out.
Anyway, after the euphoria of finding the (almost) perfect house began to wear off, it suddenly hit Tom and I that we have less than four weeks to get our current house move-ready. And since we want to sell this house as soon as possible, we've been scrambling to get it on the market... next week hopefully... so I've have no time to post, or cook, or even think. I've sorted the house all ready. I know what needs to be tossed, sold, and given away. Now it's on to cleaning and calling utilities and other such calls... ugh
In the interest of my new small kitchen: What are some space saving tips you have? And what are the essential cooking items you must have?
