We had a power outtage on Tuesday which toasted my router. So I’ve been without internet for the past couple days. Not able to work and respond to e-mail; I was cursing Verizon all day but finally had a change of heart and decided to make the best of it!
With Denae’s closet make over challenge recently, I was inspired to finally take the time to tackle my Pantry! I’ve been wanting to do it for a while. Here’s the before picture.
You may think that it didn’t look too bad, but it was GRODIE! I went all out and I scrubed and painted the shelves and walls.
I had alot of help from Drake and Ed who tried out all the new tubs and baskets.
While I was painting, they played with the garbage cans. I learned all kinds of things you can do with them such as: push them around, throw balls and toys in them, and of course jump off of them. 😉
Here’s the finished product! I was inspired by this pantry – gorgeous! When the boys came home from school they were so impressed! Davis said, “Wow Mom. You had a great day!” I thought that was cute. Dylan took the time to read every label and inspect what was in each one.
I got all the tubs and cloth bins at Wal-Mart. I was amazed at how much extra room I had by using the bins. I just grouped everything into catagories. I also got rid of most boxes. For instance, I dumped out all the breakfast cereal bars into the bin – which gave me so much more room.
I also made some rules like after school they can have something out of the snack bin. After dinner they can have something out of the treat bin. You get the idea.
What’s your pantry system?
