I have decided to tackle the kitchen first. It seems to have the most storage issues and it gets cluttered quickly. The pantry is the worst! I have baskets in there but they are overflowing with chips and crackers and who knows what. Our boxes of canned goods from Costco stay boxed and haphazardly strewn on shelves. I do believe there are 3 jars of peanut butter in there somewhere but I can only find one. AAAAHHHHH!
So, I scour blogland in search of some inspiration.
This is from Burlap and Denim.
A Bowl Full of Lemons. I love this blog for organizational ideas!
OK, I am inspired! I can do this! I begin by pulling everything out from the pantry. I throw away stale and expired items or stuff we just don’t eat.
I already had the baskets. I got them at Lowes and bought every single one they had about a year ago. They don’t make them anymore so I’ve had to find similar ones. That’s hard for me because I like everything matchy-matchy.
I bought these can organizers from Target.
The glass jars are from Ikea.
I put all of the items we don’t use that often on top. Trays, a plate rack, cookbook holder, etc.
That felt good! I can’t wait for the next purge! The refrigerator!
