Pantry: Organized!

So, is is weird that I am envious of my own pantry? I spent three hours on it tonight and this is the end result. Much better than it was, don't you think? I am a little embarassed to share with you the before, but it makes the after that much better. Thanks Breena for the can sorter idea, I found some from Shelf Reliance that rotate them. They are awesome! I also bought two boxes of snap and lock containers from costco. I eliminated a TON of cardboard boxes and replaced them with clear, plastic ones. This is so much fun! Next I am onto James's room. (And in case you were wondering, yes, that is 53 boxes of cereal on the top shelf, I like to stock up when I can get stuff free or really cheap. I don't usually pay more than .50 to.75 per box of cereal.) Someday I will get into that more. For now, lets all enjoy the views of a clean pantry.

FABULOUS! Hard to believe you just went shopping at Costco today. Great job - you inspire me!

These "After" pictures make me feel all warm and tingly inside.

By the way, I think you need some more oatmeal.

You are keeping busy aren't you?! Your pantry looks so organized and so great!

Hey Jane, what can I say you are my hero! You are inspiring me to get more organized. Where do I begin???

Tim & Breena said...

It's just so beautiful!

Maryann said...

I'm so impressed! And horrified! My pantry looks nothing like the after picture, and embarrisingly enough, worse than your before picture.

Jane!! LOVE IT! I bought a labeler awhile back for this same reason and I actually have had a few sessions with a professional organizer/business consultant! I hired her to help me with my constantly buried office and she helped me a ton. i have a long way to go, I might have her back now that we moved and have more space to organize our clutter. I have tackled a few ares but need to do more. Maybe in a month when the newness of a newborn wears off I will get on it =) What is shelf reliance? I need one of those can things!

OH MY!! I am getting on the internet right now to find some containers to get my house in order. No more excuses I am going to nip this mess in the butt!

Jane! That looks SO great! Do you mind if I ask where you got all the containers? I have been wanting the soup/can holders but want the rotating kind that you got.
Plus, it's good to see that you will always be able to survive on cereal!

Alyse said...

I'm so jealous! It looks so great!! You'll have to teach me your shopping techniques so I can get cereal for mega cheap!

Brooke said...

Holy Cow - it looks awesome! Plus, I really want to hear your seceret on buying cereal. I won't buy a box unless it is $2 or less -I thought I was doing good by that rule...seriously let's talk about this!!

Jane...Have you been chugging Red Bulls again? Just kidding. I'll be honest...I'm inspired. On my way to Costco to get some cool containers. Do you need me to pick up some oatmeal for you?
