{ Kitchen Organization}

Happy { Kinda}  stormy Monday from the North! This is going to be quite a substantial post all about kitchen organization & in particular { Pantry & Spice Cabinet} organization. These two spots in our house always seem to be a mess!! I organize here & there ,but they always seem to end up a disastrous nightmare all over! Well, this Sunday after an amazing weekend with my husband we decided to go browse around..& well what do you know we stumbled upon Michael's ;)! As many of you may know Michael's has 'Sidewalk' sales & as we were walking in they had a huge bin full of {Memory Boxes} for a whopping $2.39!! I grabbed two of them, because I knew exactly what I was going to use them for!! As mentioned before in a previous post I always try & pick up things when I see them on sale ,or things I know I can use for upcoming projects & this was a prime example! Needless to say we walked out without spending more then $10! 
Fast forward to today  ..& I have the finished product of my little bargain containers. I ended up clearing out both the Spice & 1of our Pantries { We have a built-in cabinetry pantry in the kitchen & a closet pantry in the dining room} . We use the closet pantry for my husbands work essentials!  I purged 2 full grocery bags of junk !! 

I added some new  cling cabinet paper, the same cling paper that lines our fridge shelves! Dollar Tree!
Good riddance,right?!


Side Note: The Chalk labels came with the boxes & I just slid the lids under the bottoms!  The silver ' Flour,Sugar ,& Coffee canisters are for extra supply of those items! I cringe with seeing labels. It looks much more organized & clean this way,I think!  The top shelf stores all my vintage & collected cookbooks.
** The three White baskets I had & just used them to organize Snacks,Packets,& Containers!
