My pantry in the laundry room was, as my dear friend Julie would say, a HOT MESS!
EEEK! I cringe when I look at it!
This is the area where I keep some stock piled items, like 8 o'clock coffee (as you can chuckle from the bottom shelf) that Todd and I love.
If you want to learn more about why I stock up to save money click here.
My plan today was to give this area a makeover!
I LOVE the brown baskets, but they don't fit neatly on the shelves and the contents are not easily known....
Target TimeI knew I wanted white so I headed to Target and lucked out when I found these!

|I bought 4 small and 2 large.|
I also bought a turntable that I thought I could put to use.

Clean It Out
I took all of that "Hot Mess" and put it on the counters in my kitchen. I sorted it, back to the way I had intended in the first place. (Not sure WHO messed it up! : ) since only Todd and I live here)
Sort and Organize
I'm not allowed to have more then will fit in this basket! If you want to know how to maximize your savings at the grocery store you can read more here.
I placed a few extra hot sauces, teriyaki, and ketchup on the turntable since we go through these things more quickly (and some of them are glass)
LOVE IT!!! But it needs...
LABELS!!Everything needs to be clearly marked so it can be easily found and PUT AWAY!
I LOVE the idea of the chalk board labels but didn't want the writing to come off...
Then I found these cuties on Pinterest!!! To follow me on Pinterest click here.
