It's one of my favorite days of the week. First favorite is Sunday. Then Saturday, Friday and Thursday. So, yeah, it's actually smack-dab in the middle. Moving on.
Here's my pinspiration this week, straight outta my Organizing and Keeping Home board:

So, here's the scoop. We own every spice. And it was so frustrating trying to find the right one, especially since I had not even taken them out of the boxes we moved in. So, when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew I had to try it with the empty shoe rack I had hanging around. I will report back on whether it is an actual improvement!
While I was at it, I also organized and straightened up my pantry. I have already shown you a cheap pantry clean-up once before, but apparently I enjoy repeatedly humiliating myself. In fact, this post is really good for me because over the weekend someone told me that coming into my home is like walking into a Pinterest board. Ha! When I retrieved my inflated head from the ceiling, I just had to laugh. She never saw the pantry!!!
So, fair warning: the following is not gorgeous. I do not have tons of beautiful matching containers, or even pretty labels. Or anything. But I wanted to show you what a difference you can make if you just go ahead and clean it up, zero dollars required!
It might appear like not a lot changed, but there is a ton more empty space which makes me happy. And everything is in a spot which makes more sense, too.
I have all these awful boxes for the security system in there, so I decided to make the most of them and use the fact that they are magnetic to my advantage. Cute kid artwork in the pantry cheers me up! I used Command hooks to hang aprons in this little tiny corner, since they were previously on the door where the "spice rack" is now. Also, I had to hang my hubby's meat brand. What? You don't have a meat brand with your initials in your pantry?
