Saturday

I had planned on crafting yesterday....but instead I spent at least 4 hours completely emptying out, cleaning and organizing my pantry, thanks to the army of sugar ants that decided to move in. The last straw was when we poured cereal for breakfast and ants came out of the cereal boxes. YUCK!!!! So out came EVERY single thing in the pantry. I wiped everything down, threw away almost 2 garbage bags of crap, and filled all sorts of empty Tupperware with stuff. I LOVE the Tupperware pantry organizer storage bins. You can tell from these pics that I have collected quite a few of them over the years. Every once in a while I can find them at the thrift stores but not very often.

So this is what my kitchen looked like pretty much all of yesterday.

My nice clean, empty pantry.

I'll try to remember to post a photo of it all filled up.

Instead of the long list of crafts I wanted to work on, this is the only crafting I got done. We were getting rid of these really nice clipboards at work. I brought three home and spelled "homework" in letter stickers on one for Miss S. Now her weekly homework packet has a nice place to reside, she has a hard surface to work on when she's sitting at the couch, and she'll always have a spot for her pencils. I think it will work out quite nicely. Does anyone have any grand ideas for the other two I have left?

I have those same pantry organisers in the same green. I've found my last ones on ebay.

Get them evicted! How awful! Well I suppose the upside of it all is that your cupboards will look better than Martha Stewart's :o) Look forward to seeing the after shots.
