Living in NYC means we sacrifice space for being close to one of the biggest cultural hubs in the world. As a home cooker, I take pride in my medium-ish sized kitchen(thanks to Brooklyn). Still, though, it is tight quarters – and I constantly find myself craving “luxuries” like more cabinets and a dishwasher. We New Yorkers make the best of it though, by maximizing the space we have to fit the things we just can’t live without. For my family, that is our book collection. There are kids' books, book club books and even some magazines that I can't part with.
While the majority of them are kept in bookshelves, some have made their way to my kitchen cabinets. This can be an exhausting daily grind as I try to shuffle through our cabinets looking for the right dishes and pots that are living amongst a sea of books. NYC living at its finest, but also a cry for some much-needed organization and space!
