It’s time for another Tackle It Tuesday hosted by the fabulously talented women at 5 Minutes For Mom.
My tackle this week was my pantry. The state of my pantry was truly petrifying, it had me
crawling up walls and clawing at my own eyes thoroughly frustrated and unable to find things.
The Petrifying Pantry
chunked carefully placed all of the food items on the floor well above my toddler’s level and proceeded to scrub the heck out of the floors and shelves.
I then pulled my ever growing collection of cookbooks out of hiding and put them on the shelf at eye level: But Rachel, Why? Ah, good question dear reader. Because this way they are stored with the food and I’m constantly reminded that variety and garlic is the spice of life. I crack open a cookbook, get some inspiration and get to cooking tonguegasmically tantalizing and healthy(ish) meals for my family!
Then, I organized everything by ‘family’ and put my ‘tools’ on the top shelf out of monkey’s ever growing reach and placed kid approved snacks and cereal on the bottom shelf. The floor is reserved for large griddles, woks and cake carriers.
The Pretty Pantry
This whole project only took me about 3 hours, and that’s with Monkey’s really enthusiastic help.
My next project on the pantry is to add a knob to the other side of the door and then use a sliding lock to keep the
heathens Monkey and Princess out of the goodies.
