So clean and organized and easy to see what you have and where, right?
And it seems like every other pin features chalkboard paint or chalkboard labels, like this:
I contemplated buying some pre-cut chalkboard labels from Etsy sellers, but then I discovered the wonder that is chalkboard contact paper. Paired with these fabulous chalk pens, which are easy to handle and simple to wipe away with a damp cloth, and organizing our pantry was a snap.
I wish I had a "before" pic to share, but you'll just have to take my word that the "after" is much-improved.
Some of our pantry shelves are too tall for our needs, so I found these wire shelves from Target that fit perfectly on our shelves and double our space. That gave me more for room baskets to corral types of foods.
Once I had organized the pantry, I cut labels out of the roll of chalkboard contact paper, and then edged them with some craft scissors.
That last row of baskets is another pin-inspired idea, although I can't find the actual pin at the moment. It suggested gathering snacks for your kiddo so they know where to go themselves when they want something. It's a blessing and a curse, actually, because Em will work her way through the baskets daily. "Mommy! I want fruit snacks! I want applesauce! I want a bar! I want snack bunnies! I WANT SOMETHING ELSE IN THE CLOOOOSSSSEEET!" Lest you think all she eats is processed stuff, know that she gets plenty of the fresh stuff, too.
I ran with the chalkboard labels idea and combined it with this pin for organizing bathrooms.
Here's my version:
The day I organized these, Brent asked where our Tums were. Before I could answer, he opened the cabinet and said, "OH! I suppose they're here in the 'tummy' box!"
