My resolution for March is to get organized. I want to clear out the clutter and have the house organized from top to bottom.
The first area I tackled was the kitchen. All the cupboards have been rearranged, fridge has been cleaned out and the pantry is completely organized. Here is a before and after of the pantry:
The main things I did were throwing out expired food and taking a few items I rarely use and storing them downstairs. And now, I can see everything in the pantry!
I am hoping this will help us to prevent food waste. I was disgusted at how much food had gone to waste because I didn’t realize it was past its prime. The same thing with the fridge and freezer, I felt so wasteful throwing out the amount of food we did.
To help with the organization, I picked up a few things at the dollar store. The little blue bucket in the pantry and some wire shelving for smaller items. I knew I needed a few things to help make it look better, but didn’t want to invest lots of money. The dollar store has lots of little storage items…for a dollar.
While organizing, we have also donated 4 garbage bags of stuff to Goodwill, and there should still be more to come. I have been tracking all of the donations so I can enter it in to get tax refunds.
Anyone have some awesome organization tips they use?
