Late Night Organizing

I've had a busy, tiring day. I guess just kind of busy but for some reason I've had a hard time getting doing anything. I didn't do anything of note today except laser hair removal, Primary Presidency meeting, BIG LOTS, and organized my pantry. And spent time with my wonderful family - that was the best/most important/most enjoyable part of my day.  

I love Big Lots. A lot. I've never really been in there except a quick stop to pick up some Christmas cookie cutters Lori tipped me off about. It's a magical place filled with lots of cheap things. Okay, maybe not magical but it's awesome. 

I got LOTS of great organizational bins, tupperware, and even some paper towels for $5. Score! 

Today's challenge from A Bowl Full of Lemons was to organize my pantry. I didn't have the energy to do it all day so I've been putting it off but I knew if I didn't do it today, I probably wouldn't do it so here I am at 9:00PM on a Saturday just finishing my pantry and blogging about it. Does that make me lame? Yes. I can live with it. My pantry is soo small and it was a mess before. I'm pretty proud of the after picture if I may say so. 

Here's the before & after


You can see the floor, people! I haven't seen it in months! 

Happy organizing!

  1. Wow! It looks so great. And if you're lame for organizing a pantry on Saturday night...I'm definitely lame for finishing the school room remodel...well...almost finishing. :)

  2. Is that the same closet at the bottom?

  3. Way to go!

    I understand the late evening thing-I do my best organizing/thinking late at night. If it wasn't for my kids (who for some crazy reason are morning people) I would stay up all night doing projects like this!

    I just posted my newly reorganized pantry post HERE if you'd like to take a peek.

  4. I laughed when I read 'late-night' because I started mine last night at about midnight - too big of a power nap earlier in the day I guess :) looks good
