I haven’t posted in a week because I’ve been procrastinating. I knew I wanted to do this project, but I was dreading it. I’ve been trying to bring more organization into our home, and today I’m organizing the pantry. I recently bought some cute containers at IKEA, and I finally opened a set of containers we got as a wedding gift last year. It’s about time I put them to use. I thought about posting a before picture, but trust me it’s not pretty. You do not want to see what this pantry looked like pre-organization. I have some solid containers and some clear containers, so I’m using the glass ones to hold stuff that looks pretty. Pasta, oats, things like that. Anything that should be shielded from light (like coffee) is going into solid containers. Some of my containers have little spoons attached to them. Super cute and so useful. I haven’t printed any labels yet because I want to try living with this organization system for a while first. I don’t want to have to redo labels after I find out my lentil container is way too small. So, without further ado, I reveal… the Organized Pantry!!!
Some stuff looked too messy if I just put it on the shelves, so I got two containers to hold things like that. Mostly individually packaged stuff like my husband’s loose-leaf tea. It looks so much better in this container!
There you have it. It is a massive improvement! I also reorganized all our pots and pans, but the cabinets are too dark to look decent in a picture. I kept procrastinating when it came to the pantry, but I’m really glad I finally did it. It wasn’t as difficult as I expected, but it made a huge difference. You should do it too!
