What can I say? It was a loooonnnng day. I was very busy at work then it was dinner with Nana and the cousins. On the plus side it was Joey's turn to take the girls and Nana took the boys. I had a child-free home to organize, organize, organize. It was wonderful!
Once I got home I unloaded the car (I went grocery shopping too where I found 6 qt clear containers for a buck a piece), put on my I-pod and got to work. I don't have a pantry so I decided to do my primary food cupboard.
Not too bad. Lots of wasted space though.
I pulled everything out and right away put it into piles of similar items. Putting down the shelf paper took the longest because I was determined to get it in there correctly.
Isn't it pretty?
Blurry but organized picture.
-Extras are all on the top shelf because I'm only 5'2" tall and there is no way for me to get everyday stuff down from there.
-Canned goods are on the middle shelf. It's such an odd size nothing else will stand up on it anyway.
-Pastas, sandwich stuff (honey, jams etc...), pasta sauces, boxed grains and soups on the bottom shelf. The kids can get the sandwich stuff as they use it most of the time and I can get my soups for lunches. :)
I had a lot of extras. Now they are contained. :)
Tomorrow before the kids get home I am hoping to get the baking and drinks/snack cupboards done.
