Tackle it Tuesday: The Pantry

So am I totally a dork if I'm posting pictures of my pantry clean-up? That's a rhetorical question for my non-blogging friends, who I have to face in real life. Remember people, I'm stuck here at home with a baby who is not sleeping so well right now, so I don't really have a handle on what constitutes as sanity. Plus it's raining and I have no car. And I am having bloggers-block.

This thing was way overdue to be cleaned out. We kept shoving things in and when you'd open the door, some box or bag would always fall. And since one of my recent posts was about what's in my pantry, I thought I'd show you a candid shot.

I put on the Balinese Monkey Chant for SoJo (he likes that) and started pulling out boxes and bags. We keep our cloth grocery bags on the door as well as recyclable ones on the side. This is pretty much all of our dry-goods storage space in the entire kitchen. It's desperately in need of a remodel.
That's it! This is proof for the bread winner that I don't just sit at home watching those judge shows.

I'm doubly-dorky because I really like looking at before and after shots of other people's organizing. For more Tackle it Tuesday, visit 5 Minutes for Mom.


  1. can you come over and do mine?

  2. Looks great........there's nothing like an organized pantry.......:)

  3. Great tackle! I wish I had a pantry!

  4. Big difference! Not dorky.
    Coincidentally, I'm having my shelves extended in my pantry this week so I get to repaint and maybe do shelf paper. I saw in a magazine a suggestion I may use; to paint one wall in the pantry with chalkboard paint. That way, I don't have to risk forgetting my groc. list traveling all the way across the room to write it down on a piece of paper.
    Yes, it escapes me that quickly.
    Nice job!

  5. Am I the only one who thinks your "before" picture looks nice and tidy? This comment probably signals something about the state of my own cupboards.

    Oh--I love before and after pictures too, whether they be messy pantries or frazzled housewives!


I'm a good listener...comment away!
