Totally Beccaficient

Friday, September 21, 2012

Okay, let me start by saying that my sisterís name is Becca, and she is the most efficient person I know. She is all things organized, crafty and clever. So any time I do something organized, crafty and clever, I am being Beccaficient, see?

So I saw a thing on Pinterest : Someone had used chalkboard paint on drinking glasses so their guests would have their names on their own glasses. Well, weíre not the most social people, but it made my brain start working. I have a glassed-in cabinet in my kitchen with jars of grains and beans and nuts and flours. Usually I slip a piece of paper into the jar that says what it is, though occasionally I do forget. Iím sure you can see where this is going!

I was so totally Beccaficient last weekend that I not only bought the chalkboard paint, tape and brush, but I USED THEM ALL! Now I know at a glance whether those are Navy Beans or Lima Beans; cracked wheat or kasha, caraway seeds or anise seeds.

It's a small thing, I know, but I have to admit I'm pretty proud of myself!

    Brilliant!! I also like the play on your sister's name and have to second Shara53's question: what did Becca think of your organizational prowess?

    Very cool. I am undeniably jealous of your cabinet of deliciousness. I wish I had to worry about which container had lima bean and which had navy beans. I think I have a new reorganization goal...
