Pantry Organization

Ever since we have lived in this house, I have been so frustrated with the lack of storage.  I don’t even have a drawer in my kitchen to put my dish towels and dish cloths in.  It really drove me crazy.  One day when I was browsing some blogs, I saw that someone had used a three drawer Sterlite system for add storage in their pantry.  I thought that was a great idea, so I went out and bought one.

Here is a glimpse of my pantry before and changes.

When we moved in (almost four years ago), I bought the door rack to provide extra storage.  It was okay for a while, but ended up getting really annoying because things would fall out of it.  I decided to try a different storage idea for the door…a shoe organizer!  I have used a shoe organizer for years in our computer room closet.  I use it to hold cords, wires, spare computer parts, etc.  I am really LOVING all the extra storage provided by it and the three-drawer organizer.




While the shoe organizer isn’t the prettiest accessory, it sure is nice to have the extra storage space!


Day 4 – The Linen Closet aka bathroom towel closet

I am participating in a 21 Day organizing challenge.  I have been working on it for a while, but just decided to actually create a blog and post my progress.

I took a picture of my closet as it was when I started.  I’m SO embarrassed!!



Here are all the towels on the living room floor.


There are only THREE people in our house.  Why do we need this many towels?!?


I forgot to take a picture of the rest of the stuff that I pulled out of the closet.  I sorted through all the towels and put some in a different closet to use as cleaning rags.  I separated our wash clothes from my little boy’s.  I also separated beach towels and put those up on the top shelf since we really aren’t going to need those for a while….unfortunately!!

Here is the after picture.
