My house is totally overwhelming to me some days. Not because of its size by any means, but due to the mess. I am trying really hard to stay organized while digging myself out of a clutter black hole.
I've decided to stop looking at the whole and only take pieces to work on. Doable. Not stressful. I like it.
First stop - my pantry. It was GROSS....look, I'll even show you a picture to prove it's disgustingness.
I stopped in a Home Depot and picked up this awesome shelf by ClosetMaid. $37.50 was a bit to spend, but honestly...can you put a price tag on organization? Not so much. Plus it wasn't one of those hang over the door organizers. You can see this door from my main living room and I thought that would look ugly. Dan the Handyman hung it in a flash.
The next morning I cleared everything out and gave it a good scrub down and threw out anything old and expired.
Lo and behold a new and clean pantry!
I love it! There is so much extra space now!
Room so I can see this every morning....
(mailed to me from Mississippi, it makes me laugh! I don't dare use it!)
Whoo hooo! Nothing fancy. There is no added paint, trim work, vinyl, etc. Just a normal pantry that I can now find things in.
The simple things make me the happiest.
