Most of my kitchen stuff is jammed into my small kitchen. We put two Ikea shelving units in the kitchen to help. A bit of overflow is in the basement, as is the chest freezer.

Good Afternoon,

Good Question !

In Madrid Capital at the Loft: actually for a small yet quite modern duplex 2 bedrm rental, the kitchen has excellent cabinetry. The Vet had put up shelving, however, this is not for pots or pans ! They are to house the Ceramic Chefs ... and The Gastronomy, Wine & Travel Books ...

In Gargano, Puglia: The kitch is quite large, and thus, I also have quite good storage.

As we do not cook daily, as we live in the Mediterranean, where we have Tapas and Antipasti or Meze culture; and we work until 20.00 hrs. and thus, we eat alot later, we prefer to have a round of wines & a light bite to share. Our lunches are quite a bit bigger than a typical USA lunch, a sandwich for example. Here lunch is the MAIN meal, a 1st or starter and main entreč and then, café and fruit or dessert ...

Thanks for posting. Good question.
Margi.

I have a pantry that is full and smaller closet with shelves that housed a portable dish washer at one time. We call that one "The bad kid closet" since we joke with the kids about being locked in there. I also store entertaining dishes in another closet lined with shelves. I could still use more space!

I store my Christmas china (Spode) and my china in dish "holders" and those are in drawers under the window seat. I have to restrict how many sets of dishes I have (5) because my mom has 6 sets and I'll end up with a couple of those someday...I guess.

In the linen closet, in the basement, in the pantry even in the garage for the more seldom used items!

Last year, we did a major cleaning/decluttering. Bread machine, magic bullet, smoothie maker, and all the other junk DW thought was a necessity at one time is now gone. The only gadgets I have on the counter are the espresso machine and food processor. The only things we store that aren't in the kitchen are a couple of electric roasters and a chafing dish, and I keep those on a metal shelf in the basement.

Steve--I gather you are out of the "he/she with the most toys wins" contest? $20,000 is the prize (or so I heard). I can't find the link right now...I'm in contention , and I think Dawglover is right up there with me...
