I've been busy

crafting, organizing and decorating...I just haven't blogged about any of it. My husband has been gone for 23 out of the past 28 days. (Boo hoo for me...I don't know how military or single mom's do it) So I've been keeping myself busy with projects. I have a bunch of posts coming up. Today I am posting about my pantry.

Now let me start off by saying that I love to organize and I have organized this pantry about 10 times since we moved in 6 years ago. I got red bins for all the little things and got the door organizer for baggies, etc, a while ago, but still wanted more storage.

The amount of wasted space under the bottom shelf and above the top shelf drove me nuts.

So I measured the shelf length and went to Home Depot and had more wire shelves cut. I think it was around $10 for both. I could be wrong though. I'm not going to lie and say the shelves were easy to install. I may have cussed a little and thrown a little tantrum when I messed up and was frustrated . But I kept telling myself it would be worth it when it was done.

It was totally worth it! I put one above all the other shelves, where I store paper products.

And I added that bottom wire shelf for lunch stuff.

Isn't it so lovely! I even have some empty space for now. Yay! So if your short on storage, look up and down in your closets and see if there is room to add more shelves.
