So here is part two. Yes, if you guessed pantry clean-out, you guessed right. (If some of you have no idea what I was just talking about, see my first post called Organization.) Anyway, I had my friend, Cheyenne, come over and help me totally empty my pantry, clean it, consolidate it and just make it more user friendly.
[The user being me.;) ] It really is amazing how much stuff can be crammed into a small place. I totally forgot to take before pictures. About 5 minutes into it I remembered the camera. So here are some of the partially empty pantry and some of what my kitchen looked like with all the stuff. And believe me, there was a lot of stuff!
|Cheyenne helping to unload the goods.|
|Another partial empty. Notice the wire pull-out rack. Uggh!|
|Trying to find room on the bar.|
|Stuff, stuff, everywhere stuff.|
|We finally spilled over to the table and floor. Don't be jealous of my mismatched table and chairs. A new set is on my wish list for next year. Hopefully, please, maybe.|
|We even put a few things on my desk.|
|Random items on the floor.|
|Putting it all back in a nice, neat, orderly manner.|
|This is that pull-out rack all nice and neat with all my jars and candy tins. Notice the Freddie's cup in the front. I couldn't throw that out. It is from our last trip to Freddie's on May 22, 2011 the day of the Joplin, MO tornado.|
|There is actually empty space on the shelves now.|
|The top shelf is reserved for stock pots, canner, electric skillet, extra coffee maker, blender and other such appliances that don't get used very often.|
Have a blessed day,
