Tips for Organizing Your Pantry

I’m not an organized person.

I wish I were. 

It seems like such a nice thing. Organization.

I mean I like organization…and I like the thoughts of organization…and I like to look at beautifully organized spaces…and shop the organizing aisles at Target.

I just have a hard time sticking with organization.

There is no follow through.

I organize a space and buy all of the right organizing bins and labels and baskets.

And I proudly show my family the newly organized space and explain the processes of what needs to be done to keep this space organized.

But then life gets busy and I {we} don’t take the extra 30 seconds to put each item in it’s appropriate home…

…and the next thing you know…

…it looks like something exploded in what was once a beautifully organized space.

So here are a few tips for organizing your pantry:

DIY Pantry Organization

If you were my neighbor……and you needed ketchup (catsup)…you would be in luck.

Seems that I have 3 full bottles.

Why would I have 3 full bottles, you ask?

Because until last week my pantry was a TOTAL DISASTER!

But my friends in blog world totally inspired me

…and I have a very handy dad 🙂

So here is my DIY Pantry Organization!

Craft Corner for Daisy’s Room

Posted by on Sep 3, 2012 in crafts, Daisy's room, organization, spray paint, thrift store, yard sale | 30 comments

I am almost too tired to write this post for today.

It has been a weekend full of birthday parties, soccer, shopping, time with friends, traveling hubby. . .

I need a few days off to recover from our long weekend!

I had great plans of all I was going to get done this weekend.

I have a list of fall projects a mile long.

Instead, I was home for about 2 hours (Ok, that is an exaggeration, but that is how it seems to me!)

Instead, I will share with you another corner from Daisy’s room.

I am sure that you are tired of hearing about it.

I had planned on saving this for much later.

But, here it is:

Picnic Basket for Craft Storage

Posted by on Aug 27, 2012 in crafts, Daisy's room, fabric flower, organization, yard sale | 15 comments

One of the requests Daisy had for her new room, was a great place to craft.

She is a lot like her mother. . .

Storage was a big issue.  We wanted cute, stylish storage.

So far we have used pickle jars and an old travel suitcase.

Here is the next addition to the “craft storage.”

Dry Erase Labels

Posted by on Aug 13, 2012 in crafts, Daisy's room, organization, yard sale | 13 comments

We are in the middle of redecorating Daisy’s room.

She will be 13 in just a few days.

(Where does the time go?!)

I can remember decorating her nursery just like it was yesterday.

The look we are going for is “vintage-yet-cute.”

I actually had a lot of “vintage” in her nursery also!

Her one big request was a GIANT crafting space.

With a little rearranging of furniture from other places in the house, we are creating that space.

(Part of the deal of us redoing her room was that it MUST be done on the CHEAP!)

This is not a “open up the Pottery Barn Teen and order up whatever you love.”

This is the,

“let’s see what we can re-do that we already own”. . .

along with. . .

“maybe we can find one of those at a yard sale or Goodwill.”

We are looking for great storage for her craft cabinet.

Here is the latest addition to her room.

My Blogging Stash

Posted by on Jul 11, 2012 in organization, outdoors, playhouse, thrift store, yard sale | 51 comments

It seems that I have always been a collector of sorts.

I have always seen the potential in some random piece and feel the need to hang on to it.

I have always loved a good yard sale or thrift store.

That passion (problem) has only grown since I started this blog!

I am fortunate that I have my own little “playhouse” in the backyard to hold my treasures.

I let it go for a couple of  years and had quite a mess on my hands.

There was a lot of, “I am not sure what to do with that?  Just throw it in the playhouse!”

Well, when you do that for too long you end up with chaos!

I had plans to totally redo the inside and have a big “reveal!”

But, then it occurred to me. . .

This space will NEVER be finished!

This is where I house all of my “works in progress!”

So, I thought that I would share its most recent transformation.

Here is my “treasure house!”
