Some Organization Projects

I've been on a major organizing and decluttering kick lately. Something about becoming a mama made me want everything to be as streamlined as possible. I found a ton of inspiration in this home tour, from "The Home Edit", on Style Me Pretty Living. The Home Edit blog is so incredibly inspirational. I see some fall cleaning in our future, once I want to spend our budget on organization stuff and not travel expenses or the Nordstrom sale. Eek! :)

On Friday night (with the help of my besties) I tackled our pantry! We don't have a true pantry with built in shelves, just a closet off of our kitchen that we put metal shelving up in. Before we bought the house, it was actually a laundry room! We moved our washer and dryer into a large closet and created our pantry where it is now. I've organized the pantry before but nothing has stuck. I'm feeling really good about this new system though! :) 



I already had some of these storage baskets (in the medium size here) from Target, but I organized things into specific categories. I have Breakfast, Baking, Dinner, Cans, Drinks, Sweets, Nuts, Bars, Snacks, and etc. My friend Susannah wrote all the categories in her beautiful script on these labels and I tied them to the baskets with some blue baker's twine



I plan on doing the same system on the other shelf with all of my cleaning and entertaining products sometime soon! :) What do y'all think? Have you been doing any organizing projects? :)

  3. Very cool! I need to do something to my pantry. It's a decent size, but for someone who is not naturally organized, it's easy for me to just toss stuff in there without thinking about it, leaving it crazy after a large grocery trip or frustrating when I can't find stuff.
