Good morning, savvy savers! For this weeks organizational post, I wanted to share with you one of the ways I organize my home! In my kitchen, on the wall on my pantry door, I have affixed two, and soon to be more, half-circle wire plant holders to the exterior pantry side board, and these baskets allow me to store produce, snack cakes, miscellaneous kitchen items, or whatever I have on hand, that has been purchased in bulk, that would need to be stores. As of right now, they are holding a myriad of snack cakes, which are being donated as prizes for my husbands school, as well as potatoes and apples, which are sprouting and tomorrow will be planted (upcoming tutorial will follow on my DIY potato towers); the potatoes would have been planted today, but we are currently under a severe weather watch in my area through tomorrow morning!
In any event, I found my baskets online, through Amazon.com for around $7.00 each, and I just love how little space they take up, but how utilitarian they are in design! The baskets also let me see which produce should be taken out to my compost bin, which can be prepped, cooked, and frozen as well. These bins keep clutter off of my counter tops, and out of my home.
Here’s to organizing!
