So if you haven't heard of Pinterest yet, you are totally missing out on the party!!! I BIG - FAT - PUFFY - RED - HEART- LOVE it!!!! I do believe I could call myself a pin-a-holic ;)  There are so so many awesome links and ideas...I am so visual so being able to see a thumbnail image of an idea really hooks me!  I'd love for you to come follow me on Pinterest.

If you need an invite, leave me your email address and I'll send you one, but I claim NO responsibility if it becomes an addiction for you too:)

Organizing Fool...

So summer is zipping by a LOT faster than I want it to... I cannot believe we will be back in school in 5 weeks...eeeekkkk!~ I am NOT finished with my to do list yet!!!!  I have been working on getting this house O-R-G-A-N-I-Z-E-D!!!!!! one small space at a time!!!!  First up the ...SCARY PANTRY....I am very embarrassed to show you just how B-A-D this space was but there must be a before in order to feel like you've accomplished anything right?!?!?!

I think we have little elves that sneak in at night and eat our chips and leave crumbs on the floor...anyone else have this issue???

So, I took everything out of my pantry...yes sister you heard me...I took it ALL out and scrubbed it with hot soapy water.  Then, I lined the shelves with contact paper from the dollar store.  Then I began throwing away expired food...I didn't take a picture of that, but I think I would be more embarrassed to show you just how much we wasted than how nasty this area was before:(  Then I began shopping the house for storage'd be surprised what all you can find in your home that can help you corral the madness!
And....drumroll please....the AFTER'S:

I recycled some plastic containers I'd been saving to store my brown and powdered sugar...

Couldn't resist using this basket to keep our bread in..."BREAD BASKET"...yes, I am a nerd like that!

I used an old cassette  box thing I bought of ebay several years ago and took out all the dividers to hold chips, potatoes and onions {which I am out of here} and a small basket for foil and cling wrap...

I had these mini drawers on hand since redoing my chipboard storage in my craft labeler and I got reacquainted during this 14 hour organizing partay!  

I love Mason jars so I had to use this one to store an open bag of pinto beans...I want one for rice too...that is when I have a bag of UNexpired rice on hand;)

So one small area of my house has been reclaimed and I pitty the fool that messes it up ;p lol!!!
