Pantry & Frig~ Before & After

Project Simplify: Hot Spot # 4~ Yay, I am actually posting this one on time!! Maybe I will have a chance at this weeks giveaway~ ebooks from Simple Mom that I would love to read!! Above is the frig. before~ a much needed trip to the grocery store! Here is the frig. after! Not too hard to clean. I do this pretty often. It's always a good idea to try to do this before your next shopping trip.
Pantry before. Like with the frig., not too many out-dated items, but the shelves needed a good washing.
And the pantry after. Much more organized and clean. The mason jars were pretty dusty. Hopefully I will get better at making time to can some jams and what not this year. Those got relocated to the top shelf, then there are baking goods, canned foods & rice & pastas, and snacks on the bottom shelf. The aprons are hung on the left. Everyone in the family has at least one! The boys love to help in the kitchen!
I love how this shelf turned out. I do love to label things!!
The week before this hot spot was revealed, I had cleaned above the frig.~ Boy, what a mess it was. I forgot to take a before pic., but this is after. All that is up there are bread & bagels.
This is how I have been storing my kitchen utensils for the last few years~ in a flower pot!
And we keep most of our fruit (and some pistachios) in a tray on the counter, just like Tsh from Simple Mom! It is a great way for the kids to just grab a snack, except in my house they all want their apples cut.


  1. I need to clean out my fridge! We also keep most of our fruit out for easy reach, though your dish is much prettier than ours is.

  2. I did my pantry today!!!! I should have taken before and after pictures!!!
