This was one I really needed and wanted to get done. When we moved in, I just put stuff that would go in the pantry in the pantry. No rhyme or reason to it. It all just got thrown in to get it out of the box and out of the middle of the kitchen counter. I hadn't fixed it yet. I took a photo a week or so ago because I knew I was going to organize it whether SimpleMom suggested it or not. I'm glad I did.
This is what I did to get this mess cleaned up: I found a wonderful man. I married him. Years later, he saw that our pantry needed cleaning up so he organized it while I was at work. No kidding! I've said it before: I'm a lucky, lucky lady.
