Oh my goodness… I look at these before photos of our pantry and cannot believe we lived with such clutter for so long! It’s really embarrassing to look at. Literally our pantry was the space I would just throw random things into and tuck them away, along with absolutely NO organization, as you can see… And I’m a Virgo! I’m supposed to be a clean freak!! Collaborating with the Container Store has been a dream come true! Not only do I now have the most FABULOUS PANTRY EVER– I’ve honestly become obsessed with organizing and have started taking my own baby steps to decluttering and creating space in our home. Meeting Robyn Reynolds, one of the Container Store’s organizing experts from their affordable Contained Home service was the beginning of a new me! Cheesy, but so true. Robyn and I started with an in-home consultation and discussed my family’s needs and lifestyle. She then developed a custom design and organization plan for our pantry. There was a full on demo of the pantry, shelves were removed and an elfa pantry system was installed. I honestly hated the shelves that came with the house and was over the moon to know they were being removed! We now have more shelving and they’re adjustable if we want to add or subtract shelves in the future. Robyn measured distances between shelves based on what would be placed where… For instance, the dog food is on the floor and in a pretty tall container, so she started there and calculated from that. She explained to me when everything has a “home” it’s easy to put things away and stay tidy. No more throwing random stuff into the old hiding place!
The Container Store’s annual Kitchen Sale is happening March 1st – April 1st and hundreds of kitchen and pantry products are 25% off! I’m already starting to plan my next project and make sure I buy the products I need before this awesome sale is over! I have my eye on amazing options for cabinet storage as mine is pretty limited. I’ve always wanted cabinet drawers that pull out so I can actually see what I need! After seeing how fabulous my pantry transformation is, I’m realizing my cabinets need some love now, too! If you tend to be disorganized and a “wee” bit messy like I am, you should totally check out The Container Store sale. I’m telling you, not only does the house feel more clean and put together, but I feel more at ease as well. Like, I’m so excited about my pantry and I know it sounds funny to say that, but it’s totally true! I say, “Come look at my new pantry!” to any friend that comes over who hasn’t seen it yet.
