"My husband often brews coffee and makes breakfast with one hand, holding our daughter on his hip with the other," Baird says. All the supplies are scattered about: coffee beans in the pantry, filters and sugar in separate cabinets. Cora moves the essentials into cabinets above the coffee machine, then relocates the toaster oven to the same area. Now he can make the entire meal without taking a step.
