Sick of the clutter!

Hey Everyone!
As I mentioned in my last post, I am on spring break. All my co-teachers are enjoying the beach, traveling, visiting family. What am I doing? I am SPRING CLEANING! 

I am so tired of trying to find what I am looking for, or re-buying food that I already have simply because it was buried in the back of the cupboards or the pantry.  

With the end vision in mind, I emptied out the entire pantry, and washed it all down. Then I lined the wire racks with thick sheets of white ruling mechanical board that a friend gave me a stack of. Last, I wrote down the measurements of the pantry (and while I'm at it) both fridge and freezer.

Then off shopping I went! (love this part). I went to two different dollar stores, Walmart, Lowe's and last Hobby Lobby. I found the perfect containers at Walmart and Hobby Lobby. Take a look:


Thank goodness the containers at Hobby Lobby were 40% off, or I would have walked on by. I love that store, but the prices are so high. Reorganizing the pantry, the fridge and freezer cost a total of $140.00.

Well, yes that is a lot of money for re-organization, but I will have them forever, and the peace of mind that I am not a total slob at my age, and that I have begun to simplify my surroundings for the long haul!

Leave a comment, I would love to inspire you to do some spring cleaning too!


  1. I am moving my creative space- love the look of your organized pantry! Looking great and way to go- scoring a great sale.

  2. Wow - want to come organize me next? :)

  3. What a great result from your hard work! I go through my space occasionally...but it doesn't take long to get messy again!

  4. Woohoo, looks great! I love the pop of teal as a color, too!

  5. I just did the same thing with my pantry, fridge and cabinets. It feels wonderful to purge through everything and make sure everything has a home. I too also bought uniform plastic totes. It just looks better! Congrats on all of your hard work!


Place comment here, I look forward to hearing from you!
