But I needed that space; my kitchen isn't so big that I can just waste a cupboard. So during the Cure I cleaned it out, sent things to Goodwill, and then reorganized it with holiday and special occasion platters in the back, and all my flower vases on the upper shelf.
But that didn't solve the problem of the light, so I went to the hardware store and for $3 bought a battery-operated light for the wall of the cupboard. Tada! Light, bright, and easy to see now. I feel like I conquered an annoying problem.
So this is highly recommended, if you have one of those long, narrow, inaccessible cupboards. Reclaim it with a light!Here is the light I bought, along with a better suggestion. I could only find a very cheap $3 light that takes 4 (!!) AA batteries at a time. If I had done a little more research first, I would have gone with a longer-lasting LED light.
