Pantry Envy

Friday, July 6, 2012

Hello and Happy Friday! Whew, this post could have taken on an entirely different tone if not for the strategically placed 'r' in the post title! I hope you guys are enjoying the holiday week, and you got some extra time with friends and family. We oohed and aahed over fireworks with several thousand of our closest friends, and yes, I teared up like the big sap I am.

After spending the week with my uber-organized friend, I came home determined to whip my junked up areas in to shape. Starting with....my pantry!

But first, I had to gather some Pantry Inspiration from my fellow blogger friends, and of course, Pinterest. I'm not blessed with a room or walk-in closet, but merely a tall cabinet...so these images help me figure out how to work with what I've got.

I don't know about you, but all this organized goodness has me hot 'n bothered! It's also triggered some OCD when looking at my own pantry. If you follow me on Instagram (@cassiesugarplum) or Twitter, then you know I've already hit up Target and Container Store for supplies. Ikea is my next stop, then it's time to attack! Hopefully I have a tidy new space to show you Monday. In the meantime, keep my family in your prayers as this manic episode is likely to get ugly. Are you doing any organizing this weekend? Enjoy, lovebugs!

  2. My pantry in on the to-do list, too. It's just too darn fun ripping everything out, sorting, and organizing!

  3. I am doing some organizing this weekend as well! I've spent the last couple of weeks purging my flat of the things that we don't use or need. I'm tired of the junk. The more you have the more you have to clean, and I hate cleaning.

    So, I'm almost finishing purging and now I need some different storage solutions for a few areas of my apartment. I'm on the lookout for what I need. Hopefully I'll be all done next week or so. It will be really good to make my place easier to keep clean!!

  9. This is like looking at porn, hahaha! I love an organized pantry, but of course, mine isn't. After seeing these images it's definitely going on the to-do list!

  11. We just painted our laundry room a few weeks ago and are now looking to build (or probably purchase) some cabinets and storage spaces. Now, I may have to tackle our kitchen cabinets next - your images are so inspiring. We don't have a pantry, which makes things extra difficult to stay organized, but I may have to stop by The Container Store this weekend and fix that. :-)

    Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

  12. girl you have nothing on my pantry- mine is a nightmare! and honestly I have no desire to even attempt to organize it (isnt that sad?) So if you want to pass some of that OCD my way I will gladly take it!

  14. If we lived closer - I'd come over to help- is it crazy that this kind of project makes me giddy! Can't you just see us margaritas in hand organizing your pantry - ha ;) This sounds like a fun friday night if you ask me.
    Can't wait to see it when you're done.

  15. We just moved into a new apartment with an actual pantry. It's pretty small but any improvement is a good one. I love your inspiration photos!

  16. Good luck! My pantry is a mess, but you can't really tell so it will probably stay that way ;)

  20. We are replacing wire shelves with wood shelves, painting, and organizing our pantry this weekend, too. I've coveted every one of your inspiration pictures and am excited to have an OCD/organized pantry. Can't wait to see yours too! ~Linda

Your comments are like crack, or popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. And unfortunately, because of insane amounts of spam, I've had to disable Anonymous comments for awhile. I just didn't need any more information on penis enlargements! But you can always email me! xoxo, cass
