I know you probably come here for projects to work on with your kids, and I have loads of ideas for you, but I got a burst of energy from a “pantry organization” search on Pinterest (see, poking around online is not a waste of your time!), and got busy sorting my pantry.
The “before” pictures are incredibly
embarrassing blury, and I’m sure I’ll share them one day, but for today I thought you might like to see some of the labels and baskets that corale our food stuff.
“Play Food” is where I store our bags of Cloud Dough, Gluten-free Cloud Dough, Beans, Gum Drops, Gummy Bears, and other art-related food things. Click on any of those links to connect with related projects! It’s so helpful to have it all in one go-to spot.
My crafty Fiskateer friend, Angela, sent me a sweet Fiskars corner lever punch that I’ve been using to embellish almost everything, and I added a little bit o’ Tinkerlab font to make these feel extra personal to me.
The best part of this project may be tossing all the outdated food and things we never eat, and making space for the foods we love. I’m already planning our next meal (buttermilk pancakes), which I rarely do at the end of the night.
Halleluja for organizing! Too bad it took me so long to jump on this wagon.
