Well I conquered my kitchen! Sort of… My two goals for this project were to organize my refrigerator and to convert my hall closet into a pantry. Let’s start with the fridge.
Fruits and vegetables going bad before anyone had a chance to eat them, was a big pet peeve. The storage bins at the bottom of the fridge just don’t work. We forget anything is even in them! I also wanted a centralized place for snacks so I didn’t have to hunt through everything just to find some yogurt.
So I had an epiphany. I’ll create a “snack bin”! A place for all of our snacks including cut-up fruits and veggies that’s easy to find! Genius, right?
So I picked up this little bin in the dollar section of Target. I like the bright apple green color!
I added a decorative label to some cardboard, cut it out, and attached it to my bin.
I put some yummy snacks like applesauce, carrots, cucumber, and humus in the new snack bin. It’s easy to get to and now I am not wasting any money on fruits and vegetables that never get eaten.
My new cleaned out refrigerator:
Organization makes me happy!
As for the whole hall closet into a pantry conversion… That didn’t work out too well. There is no light in that hall closet, and short of installing flood lights to brighten the area, I am at a loss on how to illuminate the space. I am for the moment, stumped. So the pantry situation will have to be an ongoing project.
Week Three’s project is coming up! More organizing to be done!
