Pantry Overhaul!

Hey guys! I hope you all are having a great start to your week, I am finally starting to get my butt in gear around here and get some much needed things crossed off of my list. To start I organized everything in our pantry yesterday. Although, we have have only lived in this house a year the pantry seems to get way out of control over the course of a few months and its been driving me insane! I'll take you through the process. Beware the before pictures are EMBARRASSING!!!!

*BEFORE*



 To get organized you need to make a bigger mess first! Here's pictures of me taking everything out and going through it. 


This is all the crap I threw away! 



*AFTER*


 I used the bottom shelf as extras and stuff thats too big to fit on the shelves above. I stored extra flour and sugar in a beverage tub. 


I put Jackson's snacks in baskets down where he can see them.


I used my cricut to cut out vinyl for the glass jars. I am going to print out some other cute tags of for the rest of the stuff.




Instead of spending money on a bag holder I decided to use one of my extra wipe containers to hold bags. I just tacked it up on the wall with thumb tacks, if you do this just don't fill it too full or it will fall off the wall.. Experienced that problem last night. I plan on putting these in the the bathroom cabinets too to hold bags for the trash.


This bulletin board has been here I keep a calendar, a list of what days the trash comes on when its a holiday and a cute notepad for the grocery list.



Now everything is all organized and pretty! I plan to keep it that way, I wanted to make it to where EVERYONE knows where stuff goes so we shouldn't have the chaos happen again. We shall see how long it lasts haha! Anyways I will be back in a few days! 

Have a great rest of the week!

I love it!!! So glad you posted this, because it gives me motivation to get mine done. I especially like how you took everything out, which makes it so much easier than trying to organize within.

Be Blessed!

You did a really great job, I need to do the same but just don't feel like it.Maybe when kids go back to school.

Great job, Allyson! I have almost exactly the same pantry, & re-organized mine several months ago & it's still good. It's those darn snack boxes that take up so much space, so I did what you did and put them in baskets & other containers. Good luck in keeping it clean.
