Our friend Crystal from Money Saving Mom is conducting a “Clear Out The Clutter Challenge.” The timing is quite perfect and desperately needed! Thrifty Al and I were just discussing our need to get some organizing and decluttering done around here in the Thrifty House!
Our first project: The Thrifty Corner Kitchen Pantry! It is stuffed full, completely disorganized and we cannot even tell what we have in there, in fact yesterday, it is so full that I tried putting the corn syrup back on the shelf, closed the door and KABOOM!!! It feel off the shelf and broke all over the floor! And let me tell ya – corn starch is NOT a fun thing to mess with – it gets you into quite a sticky place!
It was right in the middle of me making dinner last night and I looked at it – threw my hands up and closed the pantry door wishin’ – you know the kind……that if you just ignore the mess, it will go away!
Well, Thrifty Al came home minutes later and opened the pantry and asked, “what happened here?” My response “what?” Ha – it didn’t go away, but my Thrifty Al came to the rescue and got himself in the sticky mess – thank goodness for awesome husbands because my wish did come true 😉
But…… we decided it was time to see what was cluttering those shelves and get it organized!
Please note: this is our kitchen pantry, not our Thrifty Store that is located downstairs! These are the odds and ends that migrate upstairs from the Thrifty Store – we will tackle that sometime, so stay tuned 🙂
So here is The Thrifty Corner Kitchen Pantry BEFORE!!!!
It’s ok – you can scream – we won’t be offended!
So we will keep you posted on the results…….. join us with Money Saving Mom and feel free to leave a comment about projects you are working on!
