This past Christmas I gave my mom the gift of organization. Three gifts really: a pantry makeover in January, cabinet organization in February, and a laundry room makeover in March.
So before the blizzard of 2014 hit, I got in the first makeover… HER PANTRY!
My mom has a small folding door pantry in her kitchen behind the counter (you might remember the layout from when I painted her kitchen cabinets last year).
Well what’s behind those doors wasn’t so pretty…
Most of the bins I purchased from the Dollar Store.
And the tags were from Michael’s in the clearance section.
The larger baskets at the bottom are now used for chips and diet foods (purchased from Michael’s at 50% off). And the middle blue stackable containers from the Dollar Store are filled with little packs of peanut butter and jelly for lunches. I love how my mom buys the restaurant-style packs to help count calories and control your portions (you can get them from Amazon here).
I might go back in the near future to add another small shelf to give her just a little more storage, and maybe I should cover that old flowered wallpaper, but overall I’m thinking this organized pantry is pretty practical and well… pretty.
