Well, we're unpacked and moved in. But not entirely neatly:-) I've been working on organizing over the past few days, and made some happy headway...
The shirts that made the cut
Brian's closet - he just had too many clothes and was in desperate need of "thinning out". All the old stuff, all the stained stuff...there was a HUGE pile to throw away. I weighed the big trash bag full of reject clothes - it was 25 *pounds* yikes. Like I said. He had too many clothes.
Now it's sooo much neater and a much more manageable amount of clothing. All his clothes fit in here. I get the dresser for my stuff, he gets baskets in the closet:-)
I wish I had a before pic of the closet, it was such a disaster!

Pantry area in garage - the kitchen is not huge, and doesn't have a ton of storage but, this pantry makes it all work out! My kitchen cupboards are no where near crowded, thanks to having this space.

When we first unpacked, I just put things where-ever they fit. No rhyme or reason. Now we have a little order established. Feels good to have a specific place/area for everything!

I have a box full of recipes...
things I clipped from magazines, print outs from the many recipes! I was struck with a moment of brilliance (I think?!). I've had it on my to do list forever to input these on my recipe site. But it's kinda boring. Idea - post PICS of them. So much faster and easier. Check out a bunch I did today here: So soon those recipes will be in the trash and online, yay!

  1. What an amazing pantry. Love, love, love it. You should add some cool contact paper or stencil like wallpaper to the walls. Something like this.
