While Ben was painting the nursery this weekend, I got a whim to organize. Our “pantry” actually consists of 3 small shelves in our kitchen, but it was bursting at the seams and I was tired of not being able to find anything.
I already had a small spice shelf which you can see if you squint really hard, but I needed a solution for all the packets of spices and seasonings.
Insert Ms. Cute Container from the Target $1 section. I actually sighed out loud when I put all our packets in here and saw that it would work perfectly!
Next up was emptying this bad boy and taking inventory of what we were working with. I wiped down the shelves and checked expiration dates. Apparently, French’s fried onions never expire – weird and gross!
This was the throw-away pile. Not too crazy, but it definitely helped add space.
I put things we rarely use (baking stuff) on the top shelf, canned/boxed foods and our Pyrex on the middle shelf and spices which we use daily on the bottom. I love that there’s empty space. Not too shabby for about 20 min and $1!
Here’s a sneak peak of the nursery painting. I’ll show the final pics later this week of how it all turned out. We are absolutely loving it!
Has anyone else been in the mood for organizing? What’s your favorite organization tip for pantries or anywhere in the home? Would you classify yourself as a “baby steps” or a “jump in the deep end” type of organizer?
