- Take visual stock of space and items
- Remove all OLD/UNUSED and NONE KITCHEN items
- Plan the shelves: Organize by type of food
- Ensure accessibility
So here goes. I worked one shelf at a time. I utilized my island and the landing zone and cleaned out the pantry. Funny but my once packed pantry is now a organized, clean and usable pantry. Project accomplished so I thought. Wow and really in one evening! Who knew. I wondered how I would spend my time the rest of the week. So I began researching.
Prior to joining Project Simplify 2012, I have been a Pinterest junkie. I am always looking for ways to organize things. I had not looked into what an organized pantry might look like and never searched for that topic either. But I typed into Pinterests search bar the words, "organized pantry" and found BEAUTIFUL pantries with glass jars, labels and pretty things. So now I am spending the rest of the week planning my beautiful pantry. I don't know that I will accomplish that exact task but I will soon enough.
As promised I will take "after" pictures of the organized pantry. I will post those on Friday with yet another posting regarding this weeks hot spot, "the pantry."
