Why is it that the sight of neat little rows make me smile? How is it that I find something as simple as a clear glass storage container beautiful?

I’ve been needing to find a better way of organizing my pantry, especially since I’ve ditched the habit of shopping weekly in favor of shopping for two weeks at a time AND buying some extra things. I didn’t just run out and buy *whatever* though. I’ve been watching for the right kind of thing, that would really help, that I could afford, when I could afford it.

So when I found these beautiful glass storage containers for $2.50 each and these free-standing wire shelves for $1.00 each at our local Dollar General, I smiled. For $14.00 + tax I was able to get my pantry going in the right direction.

I still want to go back and get some more glass containers. I’d like to have several different kinds of rice, several different kinds of beans, and several different kinds of pastas. Storing them in these containers will keep out mice, bugs, and moisture. It will also make them easy to organize, find and use.

I also need to organize the above cabinet where I stick the extra stuff so that I can keep track of what I have, what I need and find what I need when I need it.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
