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!)

Mama’s Fun Day!

The other day I got to have fun, just me! First, in the morning I got to go and get my nails done at Happy Nails in Albuqurque.

My Factory Original Parts Are Wearing Out!

You all know that I recently had a total knee replacement on my right knee. Plus, the left knee still needs to be done. And, I have cataracts. Well, now my left foot is bad, too! I have possibly a torn tendon, nerve damage, a definite dislocation, and may have to have a hammertoe redone! I’m telling you . . .

Getting old is NOT for sissies!

Milestone Birthday!

My friends, this is what sixty looks like in my house!IMG_20170924_195933

Today is my birthday, but I actually went out yesterday for an early birthday lunch . . .

IMG_20180105_145356

Which was delicious! (yes, that soup is Zuppa Toscana  and the entree is Chicken and Cheese Piadina from Olive Garden, one of my favorite places!) I also went and got my nails done . . .

This is when I am warm . . .

This is when I’m cold!

I just love the color changing gel polish! They didn’t go all the way dark, because I just ran cold water over my hands to make them cold, and by the time I got back into the living room for a picture, they were warming up!

I have a post yet to do about Christmas, but really wanted to post this on my actual birthday.
