Tackle it Tuesday













OK I was honestly so happy to finally get this job done! My pantries have been an absolute mess. I know that I am lucky to have 2 nice big areas but they were a mess. I couldn't find anything! We had 2 families move away recently (we are military) and so they brought us all the food that was still in their house. So we have had an insane amount of food. At least it looked like it because everything was such a mess. So I started out by taking everything out. I found things that had gone stale, empty pkgs. etc so I got rid of all first. Then I started putting like items together. We had a ton of drink packets ( like kool-aid singles, crystal light...) so I put all of those in one container, all the packets of oatmeal in a basket etc. These are my before and after pictures. And the last one is of the huge pile of trash that I had after I was done! Thanks for looking at my tackle!

Great tackle! I did my pantry a few months ago & I'm proud to say that it's stayed nice & clean. Makes me feel good when I go in there now & can find stuff!

Great tackle! I've been blessed several times by people moving, too, as we are also military. :D
