I've been on a mission to organize my household including myself. Okay I'll admit that I'm not as organized as I would like to be. And this may be my way of thinking because I'm married to a man who is pretty anal retentive. As a result of this happy union....my expectations have become pretty high.
So below is what my pantry usually looks like. How does yours look? Well I don't think it's that horrible...but when things aren't organized the kids tend to just put stuff anywhere. Heck, I've been know to do the same. Well not anymore...I hope.
So on a extremely hot weekday, the kids and I stayed in and took everything out of the pantry.

The day before we took a trip to Walmart and BJ's to pick up a few organizational items. This was after some serious research for ideas on Pinterest, as always these Pinners never disappoint.
Cork Board Squares via Walmart
The green containers were an old purchase from Kmart and the white containers are from the Dollar Store. I made and printed some quick pantry labels. And that's it.
I paid a total of $40.00 for everything I purchased. Yes, I can be pretty organized too!
I love the baskets but I noticed that too many of them could be awkward. So I only used a few. The containers are a huge plus, they make it easy to be super organized and they keep everything fresh.
I used the cork squares to add a message board to the inside of the pantry doors. Looking at Pinterest, I wanted to use black board paint...but I decided to try this for now.
I really love how our pantry turned out. I've seen some fabulous ideas on Pinterest that were really inspiring and even intimidating. I even saw my dream pantry...but that's a job for another day and a different budget.
