I am completely addicted to Pinterest so I am going start there for some organizing ideas. I am going to start in the kitchen. I need to mention that I live in a small house with a very small kitchen and hardly any storage space. My other dilemma is that I don’t want to spend a lot of money on storage items so I am going to try and use what I have at home.
Now that I have the gears going on some organizing ideas I am going to hit the pantry.
Step 1: Take everything out (I did not realize I had so much stuff)
Step 2: Wipe down the shelves
Step 3: Throw out expired items
Step 4: Categorize the pantry items (vinegars, snacks, baking items, etc…)
Step 4: Bring out the label maker (mine broke so I used Post-It labels)
Step 5: Combine like items together and put them in a container
Step 6: Show my husband how to keep things organized
I did purchase an over the door storage unit from the Container Store costing around $75.00, but it is was money well spent in my opinion.
Now that my pantry is completely organized and functions smoothly I will move on to the next project. This is a good way to start the new year and help me in the morning with getting lunches together. I am finally accomplishing my New Years resolution, and I hope you stick with yours.
