Pantry Makeover

Hello there. It’s been forever and a day since I’ve done a post. I won’t get into detail but I’ve got some family stuff going on with my parents so it’s been a difficult time for me to concentrate on blogging. They’re fine. Nothing life threatening. Just getting older and I worry so much about them.

Ever since I’ve been seeing a new acupuncturist I’ve been feeling a lot better and have had a lot more energy to do things around my house. One thing that was in desperate need of cleaning was my pantry. It was a complete disaster zone. It got to the point where I didn’t work on purging it because I would just look at it and feel like it was too big of a task to take on. I think I was hoping somehow it would magically fix itself. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just wiggle our nose like in Bewitched and things would just be solved? That would be amazing!

Unfortunately I don’t have magical powers so I had to suck it up and get it done. It took four hours and a lot of sweat and purging but I’m so happy with how it looks now.

It was absolutely embarrassing how bad the before was. I like to keep it real with y’all so I actually filmed the before and after on my new YouTube vlog channel. Please don’t judge :). I’m embarrassed by how bad it was but my hope is that I can inspire just one person to tackle their pantry or other messy space in their house and make it more functional.

I did this makeover on the cheap using my existing containers and new ones that I bought at the Dollar Tree. It’s not one of those Pinterest worthy pantry makeovers but it works for me. I’m not looking to be Martha Stewart. I like my home to look lived in but it’s my goal to minimize what we have and stop wasting money.

Hope you enjoyed this post. It’s a little different for me to put myself out there like this but had fun doing it. Be sure to subscribe to my vlog channel here. I plan on filming behind the scenes of stuff I’m working on, hauls, tips and other randomness. I’m a bit camera shy so I’ll have to work my way up to showing my face but I sure do enjoy making videos.

Have a great week! Let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see on my vlog channel or main channel. My main YouTube channel is going to be for more professional and edited videos. The vlog will be for less finished videos.
