thanks so much to Laura for linking to the blog "We are that Family" and telling about her pantry. I've been working at reorganizing the house and getting rid of TONS of stuff this weekend with the kids gone. I reorganize my pantry constantly. I truly HATE a messy cluttered pantry. I like to be able to find stuff pretty easily, but inevitably things fall over (hate wire shelving!), are thrown in or not put back in the area I think they should go. I have so many Longaberger's collecting dust around the house, so decided to put some of them to use.

So this is what I've been working on a bit today. It's no where near as nice looking as the one on "we are family" but it's at least organized (well...til the kids get home from their trip to Tennessee) which is all I was going for. Okay back to work....John Mark's room is next...AAAHHHHH....trying to put it off as long as possible!!


no screen door...we did actually look at them on a home depot run, but not so sure the wire vented shelves would look as good. Did find a pricy glass door that I would like there quite a bit....we'll see....

I think I will decdicate a post to using Longabergers! It looks great(love the bowls too!) and will look so nice when you come back this summer. Organizing all those bargains must be sooo much fun. Doing better, but still need to hone my skills. Can you believe Money Saving Mom?/?zowy- Have a great Sunday and a wonderful week!

ha ha...you so should! I used to do so much better, used to boast that I had none collecting dust that they were all used. And somewhere along the way I moved away from that and they started collecting dust....ugh!! I'm sick of trinkets and clutter and am working this week and clearing out 'stuff' so this was perfect!! Thanks girl!!
I have two more coupon classes this week can you believe it? One tomorrow night and one Tuesday night...aahhh....I think God is for sure leading this because this is nothing I would have EVER done it myself by CHOICE!! ha ha ha!! I hope you have a blessed week!!

i that strawberry jam i see? i need some more!

The Unlikely Homeschooler said...

it is (plus some pear preserves from Mother and some raw honey...yummy!!)!! I'm trying to figure out when I can make some more before it's too late...and it almost is too late so I'd better hurry. But I'm finding myself being greedy with this lot because I ran out last year....I think from now on I'll triple or quadruple the recipe so I am sure to have plenty to share and a year's supply for us. Last year one batch wasn't even close to enough, now two isn't....hmm...perhaps we eat too much jam!!
