Do you have a formal dining room or an eat-in kitchen? Either way today we are going to be organizing the eating space in your home. Today is day twenty-five in the series How to Organize Your Home in 31 Days the Frugal Way.
In my home, we eat in the dining room for every meal. I live in an old farmhouse and although my kitchen is a decent size we do not have an eating space in the kitchen. Our dining room is probably the most used room in the house. It must serve several purposes. We eat all three meals there as well as homeschool and play games at the table. I have a large hutch that stores my fine china and collection of blue and white ceramic ware and vases. Under the window seat, I store all my tablecloths and linens. I have a small wooden secretary that I write letters and correspondence at and serves as a little office on the first floor.
As you can see my dining room is a true multi-purpose room!
Table and chairs
Storage unit or units
What are some of your creative ideas to organize your eating space and not spend a ton of money?
