Getting Organizeeddddd (Pantry)


Today was another lazy Saturday at the Johnson household, so while Nate was working on seminary stuff, I decided to tackle our pantry. Our pantry is t-i-n-y, and we are hoping to turn a half bath into a GINORMOUS pantry, but we will see when that happens :)

First, I decided which "groups" to have. I had already arranged my pantry this way, but some things were overflowing into other areas... which I am not a fan of: I like things to have a specific spot :) so I also "cleansed" our pantry (i.e. checked expiration dates and if we never ate it) and threw things out. It was so refreshing! Nate was pretty amazed.

Using my Silhouette, I made some prettyyy cute labels. Our kitchen is lacking in the color department: I originally wanted a grey and yellow kitchen, but there's not much yellow going on... I need to update our accessories. So I used yellow and black scrapbook paper as the backing of my labels. I then wrote each category and away I went to labeling!

I also labeled our clear plastic containers that hold tea, drink mixes, flour, and sugar.

An example of a shelf label: all iPhone photos, sorry :)

An organized shelf!

And the entire thang :) So pretty! Don't mess it up, Nate! (just kidding, he's about the same about of OCD as I am)

  1. I know what you mean about having a small pantry. Mine's about the same size. It looks so great and organized now. Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday.
