Well I finally completed the organization project in the kitchen pantry. We haven’t lived here long enough for it to be a complete disaster …yet.
I wanted to try to make it as functional as possible, as soon as possible.
During one of our snow days, we pulled everything out of the pantry…(Kreed gladly helped with this part)
Next, Laelle helped by writing temporary sticky note labels until I was able to print my “nice” labels (from etsy.)
I printed these (customizable) labels from Sara Luke Creative (etsy), laminated them, hot glued them to these white silicon baskets I’ve been collecting from the Target $ spot.
During our (sometimes monthly) trip to Target there would always be some kind of white silicon basket in the glorious $ spot, so I would pick up 3 or 4. Before long, I had enough to completely stock our pantry.
Since we’ve moved into much more space, I’ve been trying to come up with a chore system where our girls were responsible for some tasks around the house . So I did what everyone else would do before tackling home projects…. PINTEREST.
I searched “chore charts” and came up with plenty of DIYs (that I didn’t really have time for) and some chore charts for purchase. Most were cute but did not fit our needs and weren’t customizable OR were super expensive.
I found these adorable chore charts from a shop called Abbie’s House and started to read up on them. Turns out they really know their stuff and let you customize the magnets to your needs, customize the layout of the chart & even customize the color of decorative ribbon.
They were SO professionally packaged and very thorough with customer service. Plus their chore charts start at $16… You can’t make one half as nice for that price . Use coupon code prov31 for 10% off any order
My girls haven’t stopped asking for me to “give them chores” ☺️ This morning was the first full day I could see how the chore charts worked out. They woke up & went straight to see their chores for the day.
They’re growing so quickly and have needed more responsibility so this makes the process fun for them.
I’m so pleased with how our kitchen is coming together and the functionality of it all.
If you are feeling frustrated with the functionality of your space … I feel your pain! I was right there with you for 8 years.
Make the best of the space, organize & re organize, pin, get inspired, get rid of the excess…
I totally live by the motto:
“An organized house is a happy house”
I want everything to have its place in our home. That usually happens when you can label as much as possible… #labelallthethings
I’m even labeling our doors… Check out my chalkboard arrows from Hobby Lobby!!
Hope you enjoyed the tour!
