Money Saving Mom's 4 Weeks to a More Organized Home Day 17: Clean Pantry and Cabinets

Well today I definitely didn't expect Money Saving Mom to post another really intense cleaning assignment. Yesterday I spent a good 2 hours working on my vents! Yet today another 2 hours of work!

My Kitchen was not in dire need of a cleaning but I figured we have been here for 6 months now and it couldn't hurt to get everything back to perfection!

We pulled everything out, wiped all crumbs out, and scrubbed spots on the cabinet liners.

With everything out of the pantry I got to wipe out all the cubby holes and dump all the baskets out over the trash to clean them.

I don't know what that is considering I only store dry box food on this shelf....

The after of the pantry, I really need to get stock piling but Mom's Best cereal has not been on her Best price lately...lol.

The pantry baskets after: I even have 2 empty baskets =)

I lined all my cabinets and pantry shelves when we bought our house. Some of the liners had gotten a little out of place though.

This looks sloppy because Rachel likes to come play with the pots and pans while I clean or cook =)

All of my Pyrex!

Cups plates and bowls in every size and shape.

I can't believe that the minimalist in me has 2 sets of measuring spoons and cups!

One of my favorite kitchen appliances!

I even wiped out everything under the sink =)

I just basically needed to do some light rearranging in all of my cabinets. It would take forever to show you each cabinet! So I made a video of the after results. It is a silent video in just 30 seconds because I sound really dumb on video and I couldn't email myself a file bigger than 30 sec from my phone..lol

I have been failing miserably at the finding things to get rid of task lately so I was pretty excited that today I actually came up with a nice pile =)

I really like your blog - great title! And I LOVE your pantry basket organizer so pretty for a pantry!

I only did my food cupboards today - I'm not sure how I managed to miss the rest of them but I'll try to play catch up tomorrow and get back on track.

Thank you so much =). I bet your food cupboards were the most of the work and the rest shouldn't take long today =)

I love your pantry basket organizer too. I will have to see if I could get one of those. :D

Logan Family said...

Carlye, If you can fit one of these in your pantry def get one =) I got it at Target for $39 and the baskets were $12 each =) I am wanting to get some cute labels on them soon =)

I have two sets of measuring cups too. I love it because I give my daughter one set to play with while I cook with the other. It's her way of helping me cook since she is only one. :)

My pastors wife has 3 or 5 sets of measuring cups and spoons because she has 2 older daughters that help cook =) I can't wait for my little girl to get into "mommy" things too =)
