We do not have a lot of storage in this house. What that means is that all of our junk seems to accumulate on the counters and on top of the refrigerator. I am guilty of this, as well. I throw things up there that I don't want the kids to either see or get a hold of.
Since my kitchen does not have a lot of cabinets, I don't have a designated place for these glasses. I've had them on top of the fridge for a while and yes, sometimes they get too close to the edge, fall, and shatter.
So, I took all of this stuff off, wiped down the top and either stored it somewhere else or through it away.
I FINALLY threw away my coffee mug. Why I held on to it for a whole year is because I'm a hoarder and I really hoped to one day to be able to glue it back together. That was never going to happen.
This is what it looked like when I was done. I left just a couple of wine glasses down and then put the rest on top of another cabinet.
