This was my pantry. After the 10th time a chip bag fell on my head, I realized I needed to bite the bullet and handle this chaotic space once and for all.
So late afternoon on Sunday, I decided to clear it out because I could no longer handle the disaster my pantry clutter had created. I had also done some grocery shopping, which is why, when the pantry was emptied, it looked like we lived as hoarders.
Once it was all cleared out, I purged three bags full of bad items…..those holiday cookies, it was time for them to go.
I wiped everything down and washed out containers to prep them for use.
I then proceeded to play with the different variations of basket and storage container placements…
because I’m a nerd.
My family likes to send money for my birthday so I can pick out my own gifts. This year, I bought pantry baskets and containers…
Again, proof I’m a nerd.
So, how did it all turn out?
I’m proud to say that by midnight, I had completed my reorganization.
That’s what I get for starting late afternoon.
So here it is, in all it’s beautifully organized glory……and now, chips are no longer falling on my head when I open the doors.
Have you taken on any spring cleaning projects? What are your favorite organization products?
Top shelf: Oxo Good Grips Pop Containers for cereal and pasta
Second Shelf: Bamboo turntable fo can goods – found at TJ Maxx
Third & Fifth Shelves: Baskets with liners from Target. I picked baskets with liners for easy clean up. I stored baby food in one, baked goods in another – it was a good way to corral items that were alike.
Fourth: Candy shop-like canisters with lids are from Target. I purchased these last year for my daughters birthday party. They are not airtight, so I used them for individually wrapped candy and some trail mix that we go through pretty quickly.
Floor: I picked up a plastic weave basket and some chip clips and that is now where I place all of my opened chip bags.
