Happy Friday Luvs!
Super late blog post tonight but I had to share my new pantry organization with you all. I’ve been wanting to get things more organized at home and I’ve finally taken the plunge by designating a project space and just going for it!
I wanted to start with a space that when organized would benefit the whole family so the pantry seemed like the perfect space. I neglected to take a true before photo, so the one below will have to suffice. In this photo I had already cleaned out the very bottom, which was a mess, and started organizing the third row.
As you can see there was no method to my previous madness, and as a result I really had no idea how much food I actually had in my pantry!
So, I began by determining what type of storage pieces would serve as a solution to this disaster of a space. Big Lots, Dollar Tree and Walmart were my go to stores for getting what I needed. The clear bins pictured above are from Big Lots. The teal canvas bins and teal cereal containers below are from Walmart. And the other plastic bins are from Dollar Tree. I stuck with teal and red for pops of color since those colors are consistent with my living room which is right off of the Kitchen.
I pulled everything out of the bottom of my pantry which had become a storage space for pretty much anything. My little person helped me go through everything
After I got through that I went on to pairing like items in each bin. This is when I realized how much food we had! It was crazy to see just how much we had been over purchasing. After two days of hard work I completed our new pantry organization and couldn’t be happier.
I’m so excited I just leave the doors open since the colors flow so nicely with my family room decor. The black chalk name tags are from Walmart.?I spent roughly $50 to complete this project. I’m so inspired and ready to move on to the next space. Stay tuned!
