and if this is a mess, it's hard for me to do anything in my kitchen that resembles cooking. I put away the groceries and cleaned the fridge and freezer. I try to do that every month. It should be every week, but that's just not possible. Then I turned on the pantry. Everything out, then everything back in. I filled up a garbage can full of boxes, crushed napkins, etc... and got a few things to put aside for the garage sale. Mostly though, I just put everything where it needed to be after obviously slacking on this for a while.
I made a school lunch area-
a breakfast area- (triscuits are a lunch thing- but didn't fit)
canned good drawer...
I can walk in now!
and before I forget- here are the cookbooks that I keep in the pantry- I have more but there are in my office because they don't get used as often as these do.
