Dollar Tree Organization | Pantry

My husband and I have lived in our first home for a little over a year and a half.  In that time, we have learned many of the ins-and-outs of our home that we couldn’t have known before we purchased it.  We have learned little things about our home that make us smile, and some things that make us want to pull our hair out!  Our kitchen pantry (or lack there of) causes the latter.

We don’t have a designated pantry area in our kitchen at this point.  We are using the two cabinets on either side of the stove as a pantry.  As you can see from the picture above, prior to the organization, the pantry was not in a good state.  Everything was just tossed into the pantry with ZERO organization in place.  I had no clue how much of anything I had!  I was constantly buying duplicates and triplicates of everything because I could easily access what I had!

When I saw these soda can organizers at the Dollar Tree, I knew that they would be the perfect solution for our pantry!  These easily fit multiple cans and are the perfect width and depth for our cabinets!  Organizing our space was going to be the EASIEST project!

To start, I needed to clean out my pantry!  I took EVERYTHING out of both cabinets and organized it!  Would you believe that I had not duplicates, but TRIPLICATES of several products?!?  I couldn’t see exactly what I had with my previous system of organization!  Embarrassingly enough, I found a few cans that had expired a several years ago…We have moved since they expired…We were moving expired food…How embarrassing…

Once I organized all the product I was keeping and disposed of what was no longer wanted, I needed to label the organizers.  Luckily, the Dollar Tree had the perfect product for this project!  These Adhesive Label Holders work PERFECTLY to label each container!

These were such a great invention!  Simply write the name on the provided yardstick and slip it into the adhesive sleeve!  Then, you can just stick it onto the organizer!

There you have it!  A simple, easy, DIY, inexpensive way to organize your pantry!  Total investment for this project for me was $16!  Now, I love to go to my kitchen, open my pantry, and admire how organized the space is!

Cleaning with…A Magic Eraser!!!

Cleaning with...

Shawn and I have been working so hard on sooo many projects for our home!  One thing we couldn’t stand were our stained and old linoleum floors!

We don’t mind the pattern or design that much.  It is not our favorite, but we felt that we could wait to change them until we had a full renovation planned for our home.  We wanted to find something that could restore our floors!  Suddenly, I remember Magic Erasers!

My mom LOVES to clean with Magic Erasers!  I think this was my first time purchasing them and using them in our home!  I bought a pack and tried a little spot!  To my surprise!  It took out all of the stains immediately!

I didn’t realize how nice our floors actually were!  It was hard to see the beauty through all of the staining and scuffs!  Several hours later, I completed our whole floor!

Before and After

The proof is in the picture!  The Magic Eraser did wonders for our home!  I would highly recommend these for anyone struggling with a difficult stain!  I will definitely be using these in other projects!

Check out my latest YouTube video for a closer look at the process!!!
