Amazing pantry, - A necessity

When thinking of the pantry, home store, or storage room. I feel like it should look as good or better than your favorite grocery store.

In order to be functional, it should have foods you love and know how to cook with. Just because something is a good deal doesn't mean it will do your pantry any good. In fact if you don't plan to use it - don't buy it.

I have learned these things on my own... Have you ever been in a cluttered pantry? It's awful isn't it, you go to grab a can of tomatoes and when you pull it down you get a couple pounds of pasta a can of corn and tuna on the floor. Or maybe this is just my own experience.

Imagine an immaculate pantry. Filled with your necessities and voila, I am telling you, when my pantry looks good I don't feel the need to eat out as much. Because I can actually see what is on hand. Instead of having nightmares about how to get food out of there and into the kitchen.

Here is the Before and After

Intro into inner workings of Organization

It was one of those days. I was so excited to take the boys to the grocery store and then it hit, my need for organization. I saw these elegant jars on sale at the store and knew that they were a must to make my kitchen feel a bit brighter.  Maybe it's just me, but I think you'll agree one organized thing or one pristine thing especially when in student housing makes life feel fuller, a little more magical.

To get to know my inner workings or love of organization it won't be too hard. My old roommates used to laugh at me because on Friday nights when they were watching movies... Sometimes you'd find me in the kitchen doing something great, a master piece a work of art. That's right! Putting my flour, sugar, and baking necessities into beautiful containers and then into sections that fit and
make most sense to be surrounded by each other for ease when baking and cooking. And this was only into the early hours of the morning. Nothing really crazy... Or is it. That would all depend on what you love and what you spend your time doing. Don't get me wrong. I'm certain people perceive me as fairly normal, just in love with order and serenity..
