Saturday morning was very exciting at our house! This GIANT box arrived with all my goodies from The Container Store!!
My loverly organizing items.
Two small mesh stacking shelves and a cabinet door wrap rack.
My pantry started out like this:
After: Things are placed together by function, shape or size. Bottom shelf (from left)is for potatoes, onions and garlic, vitamins, boxes and packets of soup mix, granola bars and popcorn!
(From Top) outdoor party supplies (placemats, napkins, paper plate carriers.
cookie cutters, box mixes for fancy biscuits and desserts, plastic forks & knives, extra wraps
Next is room for my canning supplies on right, my breadmaker on left, giant bottles of Italian olive oil, spices & honey...and hubby's protein powder finally has a home. (It used to migrate from shelf to shelf!)
Drawers for my baking supplies (on left) and my less used appliances: Food processor & blender) Even though I rarely use these two, I still want ready access for when I do want to make a milkshake(YUM!!) or shred up some veggies or puree some baby food for the daycare baby-lets!
Over here are my bulk items: (see those spices again) things like flour, steel cut oats, couscous, cornstarch, 10x sugar, pasta, rice, etc.
It might not seem like too much change, and that's true...we have tooooo many things stuffed in this tiny space, but I can actually see, and/or touch everything. That in and of itself is MAJOR!
Hubby's job tonight after work is to sort & purge some of his hot sauces that he never uses and I should really purge some of my entertaining items (or find a new hiding space) but I think I will wait until another day to do that!
Now, I must return to cleaning my kitchen and folding laundry! Hope your weekend is going well!
