Miss Mojito loves her apartment: the little balcony overlooking a busy street, the bright kitchen, the two cozy bedrooms, the great location. But it’s not all rainbows and unicorns chez Mojito. My recurring challenge in apartment life is the lack of storage space. And two of my biggest storage obstacles just happen to be those very topics so dear to our hearts here at S&C: shoes and cocktail fixings. Luckily, I’ve come up with some solutions that work for my apartment lifestyle. This week, we’ll take a look at how Miss Mojito stores her alcohol.
Until recently, I kept my liquor and wine on top of the refrigerator, a less-than-ideal location for several reasons. The heat from the fridge is certainly not good for the health of the drinks, plus the liquor would sit in the full light of a window. Not to mention that I’d love to use this space for extra kitchen appliance storage. What’s a girl to do?
Ideally, I’d have a cool, dark cabinet reserved for liquor storage. This not being an option in my jam-packed abode, I decided to take some inspiration from this Apartment Therapy posting and find myself a portable bar cart. Although my dwelling place is by no means expansive, I still love the idea of having a little cart that I can roll from room to room (and onto my balcony). But seing as the options featured on Apartment Therapy were a bit out of my price range, I had to get creative. After several hours of extensive Internet research, I opted for a compact, slightly retro bar cart from, of all places, Walmart! I must say, I’m more than satisfied with the cart’s cool, glass-and-chrome composition, as well as the under-$40 price tag.
Now, the only thing left to do is stock my bar cart! Miss Mojito wants to know: what are your liquor storage obstacles, and how have you overcome them?
