Reclaiming Our Spaces: Organizing My Double-Duty Pantry

Today I decided to work on the pantry in my kitchen.  It’s a double-duty pantry.  I use the top part for food items & the lower part for the kids’ frequently used crafts, art supplies & activities.  
My little pantry was getting pretty crazy.  I had it well organized when we first moved in, but 2 bad habits got in the way:
1)  Holding onto items that needed to find a new home
2)  Shoving items away in the cabinet instead of putting them in a specific home
So, I took everything out of the cabinet & sat down to think for a minute.  “What do I really want to be in this cabinet?  What needs to be thrown away?  Given away?  What needs to find a new home?”
Here’s what I ended up with:

So much cleaner, neater & easier to deal with.  I love that I know exactly what’s in there & where it is!

Another clutter area CONQUERED!!!!
Holly worked on her closet this week.  That is on my to-do list as well!
