Mixed use kitchen cupboards

I did my pantry inventory, and then I followed up with ‘what’s in your cupboard‘. But I missed a few cupboards that I didn’t feel fit into either ‘food’ or ‘functional’. Here’s where they are, relative to everything:

The electrical + alcohol cabinet
This is where light bulbs go that I can reuse, or are new. It’s also where liquor goes. (oh handy tip/explanation: CFL light globes don’t like the oils in your hands, so use a sock to easily remove or install bulbs) Yes, that is a small cabinet. Wine has another home.

Electrical + alcohol cupboard - weird right?

Breakfast zone
This cupboard sits to the left of the fridge, so it’s perfectly located above prep area for breakfast. The black box holds pills/tablets like vitamins, and even some painkillers. I also have an egg cup tucked in the back, as well as regular additions to porridge – pysillium husks and cinnamon powder. There’s also the home of the toaster and the kettle. There’s tea and the coffee plunger on the top shelf with the bulk storage of oats. Having all this in one place makes morning clean up so simple.

Do you have some cupboards housing a hybrid of things?
