Happy New Year!
I’m ready to start this year off trying to organize my home. I shared with you how I lack organizational skills, so this year I am going to declutter once and for all, and I need your help to keep me on task, motivated, and to share your most valued tips that you use to help you organize! We all do better at achieving our goals when we have a buddy, so I am looking for organizational buddies!
I know many of us have lived in a small home before, If you are a master at declutter, please pass your tips on so I can share! I have many friends who are struggling with me and we need all the ideas and support we can get to maintain our clutter!
Oh and to all of you Organizational Queens, please don’t judge me! HA!
I have decided to start with my kitchen pantry being the first in line to organize. My kitchen is one of the most busiest rooms in my home. Therefore is collects the most junk. My counter tops are forever filled with clutter, and I can’t take it anymore! We moved into this home in September 2011 and I am ashamed to say that I have a mess in here!
Now that David has been back from Afghanistan a little more than a month, we are back to our home improvement projects! We have been working on the kitchen, but you will have to wait on those updates until another day! :-) So with all of the progress and focus on my kitchen, I need to begin with my kitchen pantry first.
Amber lane living shows off her pantry, and I just have to say, GAME ON! LOL just kidding! She is the best to organize a pantry. She actually wallpapered her pantry! NICE! What a great way to make a stylish and decorative pantry, but just not too sure I will go through that much trouble for my pantry! We will just have to wait and see on that one!
However I do think it is a top notch pantry and I love how the labeled canisters are used as an extra touch to your home decor! What a great decorative way to store your flour and sugar.
Here is a pantry with glass containers too! I think I’m in love!
i heart organizing uses an over the door pantry organizer that is perfect for canned goods!
Here is her painted pantry. Check out the matching green plastic storage bins that she uses to organize. Everything is so neat and pretty!
I even love the grocery list hanging on a 3M hook. Very clever!
realsimple.com uses a clear, over the door organizer, great for smaller items including season packets and jello boxes.
If you don’t have a pantry door, maybe you have just a bi-fold door, make bake celebrate shows how she used little sink caddies stuck on with Velcro circles to store and organize smaller packages.
Now that is a genius idea since my girls love leaving empty boxes in the cupboard! Constantly tricking me into believing we have plenty of granola bars!
jenny collier photography.com shows off a pretty kitchen pantry too! This pantry is sporting a great organize look.
And a mess!
So I went to Dollar Tree yesterday and bought up a few things to get me started. I was able to even color match my new stuff with the colors of my kitchen!
my kitchen pantry’s gonna look pretty!!
I was amazed at how much organizing containers they had! and pretty colorful ones too!
I really need to get busy and try to get this kitchen organized.
