Covid 19 “Stay at Home” Pantry Clean & Organize

I promised I’d show you the pantry fix this week, so here we go!

When I got started, my pantry was a disorganized mess. My kids just basically were shoving things in willy-nilly, which meant NOTHING was with whatever it should go with. By the time I was done, I dicovered we had several of a number of seasonings, for example.

Before:

So, I went to the Dollar Tree and bought baskets. Just these. This is all that I used. $14.00 worth of baskets from Dollar Tree. The vines (also from Dollar Tree) are for another project in the kitchen.

I made my kids help me pull every single thing out of the pantry. I totally forgot to take a picture of it all sitting on the kitchen table. I’m not tearing it back apart just for a picture.

But THIS is what it looks like after!

How long it will stay this way, I have no idea. I already had to move some things back to where they belong after cereal was “put away” this morning.

In the meantime,

What Are YOU Doing During Covid-19 Stay at Home Orders?

Today, I tackled some spots in my home. This is my Island and counter top. In my house I’m the only female, and live with a bunch of guys who never met a surface that they didn’t feel was perfect to be a dumping ground.

I will acknowledge that I put the purple flowers and the organizing baskets on the island. The flowers are now up on the very top of my upper cupboards:

This is what I’ve gotten done so far. Next week, I’ll show you the before and after of my pantry, which is what I purchased the baskets for. (at the Dollar Tree!)

In the meantime . . .
