|$1 each at the dollar store! Score!|
I have mentioned before that I have OCD and you know since I am pregnant and all nesting has definitely set in so the other day when I walked into my pantry and saw how terribly unorganized, cluttered, junky, and messy it was I decided it was time to get to work! I went to the dollar store and got a few bins to organize some of the loose items and headed in. Tyler was nice enough to entertain Everett so I was able to knock it out in one evening!
I had a few "goals" in mind:
- Items that we use frequently needed to be easily accessible
- Items that we do not use frequently need to be put up higher
- Items that were similar should be grouped together (laundry items, games, canned goods, breakfast items, etc.)
- Items in front of the shelves should be put away, relocated, or thrown away.

So... what do you think? Does it seem like I made any improvements? Have you been organizing anything around your house?
