Things I love about this house? A walk in pantry. Things I don't? The state of said walk in pantry. Which currently is really, really hard to walk in to.
That overhaul would take a good long day. A day that I don't have in me right now. Someday. Maybe even I will have a pantry like this pretty one. But not today. Probably not tomorrow either.
But I did have five minutes. With that goal in mind I finally broke down and bought this tiered organizer thing that I have wanted, since I don't know, like forever.
Suddenly the spices aren't all jumbled and impossible, and 1% of the pantry is organized.
Why did I not do this thirteen years ago? Why is often the most simple tasks, with the biggest payouts, the ones that never ever get done? Such is the way it goes. Now I can see and find everything I need to make this yummy soup for tonight's dinner. Tonight's dinner that will involve 3/3 of my children crying. But I won't. I will smile and gladly keep their portions for my lunch tomorrow. Mwahahahahahaha.
While at Target buying the shelf stacker thing I totally had a Teerget Lady moment. It was as if she had never seen one in all of her life. At that very moment it took everything in her to not run off and grab one of her very own. I even was interrogated as to which specific row I found it in. Spice organization is life changing business, apparently.
Who doesn't love a little JT with their Teerget Lady?
