ABC Wednesday: Round 18 - T

And T is for...

And also for Tea Chest.

M and I drink a lot of tea. We drink a lot of coffee too, but somehow we don't seem to have so much trouble storing coffee beans. But tea -- both in bags and the loose kind -- always poses something of a problem when it comes to storage. When we moved into the new house a few years ago, I simply shoved all the tea stuff onto a shelf in the pantry and left it there. Over time, more and more boxes and containers accumulated until it had turned into a terrible tea-thing jumble.

Every time I wanted a cup of tea, I ended up with boxes falling all over the place. It was maddening.

Then one day, a lightbulb went off in my brain and I thought "TEA CHEST"!!!  Why hadn't I thought of that in the first place? Why hadn't my thoroughly organized and ingenious hubby offered the suggestion? Maybe we really are getting too old to be left on our own.

Well, anyway. I zipped on over to Amazon looking for tea chests and, after a morning spent browsing and comparing and making up my mind, I found one I liked, clicked the "One Click" button and now that corner of my pantry looks like this:

So organized! Everything easy to find and no tumbling teabag avalanche every time I want a cuppa.

Total tea time triumph!
