Cleaning the Pantry

Before

Those that follow my blog know that my youngest son, Nick, broke his arm. For those that don't know, Nick loves to stay home. Now that he is injured and has an excuse, there is no getting him out of the house. I'm about to go crazy, we have not left the house since Wednesday when he had his surgery. Yesterday I decided to clean out my pantry. I have been wanting to clean it out for the last month. Might as well do it while I'm stuck at home.
After

Oh, this is so much better, I can see everything we have.

Last week Wal-mart had their jars on clearance, I bought every single one they had. In the above picture I put cereal, powdered sugar, bird seed, anything that was in a bag, I'm now storing them in the jars.

I have been looking at different blogs and all the cool things they have done to their jars.
Thrifty Decor Chick labeled her jars.

She even painted rulers with chalkboard paint and labeled each section in the pantry. Too CUTE!!!


Kimm at Reinvented painted her jars with chalkboard paint and then labeled them with chalk. Love this idea also!


My Sweet Savannah labeled her jars also.

I have some ideas, I'll be back later to show you what I did. :)

The jars you bought are perfect, don't you just love them?
To store things like rice, oatmeal, beans etc. I went to Target and bought some plastic pitchers with lids with a snap down pour lid. They are not clear but you can still see what is inside and they line up so well on the shelf. Here is a link to the page with one of them on it, first column, third item down.

Nice re-do on the pantry, isn't it nice to have it so organized.

Score! Awesome that you got the jars on clearance! :)

Hey, I keep meaning to ask you...do you mind if I feature your boys' bathroom on my blog? I would love to be able to show another example of the Board and Batten! Let me know! :)

Those jars look great. I am sad that I got rid of a big jar like that some time ago - what was I thinking?! Linda
