~~~It snowed and I ORGANIZED the Pantry!!!~~~

Well, since last night we have gotten about 14 inches of NEW snow. We are having a lull right now but more is coming tonight. UGH. But at least we have our power and I am praying we don't lose it. I feel terrible for our friends in the south who are NOT prepared for ths crazy weather!!! So, I took the opportunity this morning to clean out both pantries and my laundry room. The plastic box on the door holds menus from take out places. All that is soon to be replaced with wire shelves that we ordered and should be here soon. The pantries are very small so I need all the storage help I can get.
 The top shelf
 has things I don't use alot
 The next shelf...right side and
 left side. (Note) I found this old trophy cup and plan to use it in a new vignette)
 next shelf: crackers, cookies, cereal
 I keep the toaster in a plastic bag
 next shelf: I love using the wire things that double your storage area! I think you can see that when we moved in, we bought the opaque plastic shelf liner so things wouldn't fall through the slits in the wire shelves. Someday we may replace these with wooden shelves. ANOTHER thing on the "honey do list":):)

 On the floor I have some placemats and platters sitting on the box of Duraflame logs that we use outside in the warmer months. The empty box holds my crock pot. It is being used right now; beef stew cooking for dinner tonight! I keep it in the box caue it fits really well and is great for transporting.
 AND, I have some empty space! Believe me, it was full of accumulated crap when I started. I forgot to take before pics, sorry!!!! BAD blogger:)  The other pantry is still a work in progress so I will show you that later. It too is getting wire shelving on the door so will be redone soon anyway.
 This is what we woke up to, about 14 inches of NEW snow!
 That is a ROBIN!!!!
 My poor guy that is by the pond is up to his waist in snow:(
 The front bushes are almost covered.

I hope where ever you are, you are safe and warm and have power!!! XO, Pinky

  1. Wow, Pinky! You are really getting hit hard! Hope you're staying warm and making the best of it. Ironically, I organized my pantry yesterday; and threw out 4 big garbage bags of junk! LOL!! Like you, I also keep our Duraflame logs in there, for use outside. It was quite the chore; but, I feel so accomplished today!

  2. The pantry looks amazing, I love how organized it is.

    Wow, that is really a ton of snow, hope you stay in and stay warm. Hugs, Marty

  3. Oh it makes me wish for a snow day here in AZ. Your pantry looks great!

    Have a lovely Valentine's Day!

  4. Hi Pinky! Oh, you did a beautiful job organizing your pantry. It looks great! Now that's a lot of snow you have! Have a great Valentine's Day!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. Yikes Pinky that is a lot of snow!!!!
    Pantry looks great..I re-arranged furniture while it was snowing!!! Happy Valentine's Day!! and have a great weekend!

  6. I can't wait to see your door to see your door shelving. We need that on our pantry. I wish we had the door done in a double rather than single. The back is sort of hard to reach.

    We had snow again this morning but not much. Snow that was on the ground melted a little yesterday, but there is still plenty...not as much as you though.

    Happy Valentine's Day...we are happily waiting for the chairs.:-)

  7. Pinky,
    Amazing organization, dear friend!!!
    Several years ago, during a long Winter storm, I painted our kitchen cabinets!!!
    I LOVED seeing the Robin!
    A sign from above that Spring is on its way!!!
    Hang in there!!!

  8. The snow is so pretty! I need to organize my pantry.


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
