Does going on vacation make you want to clean out your entire house?! I feel like I need/want to re-organize and deep clean everything so that when I come home it’s all nice and neat like the hotel rooms lol!

Kitchen Pantry Before

I’m hoping to tackle some bigger projects around here before our first trip in the works (to Carlsbad, CA) in a few weeks and maintain them until our big trip in May to Orlando. I thought maybe if I make a list here it will hold me accountable. So here it is:

  • Organize the pantry
  • Re-style Bookcase
  • Deep clean/organize Master bath
  • Install in-cabinet trash can in the kitchen
  • Organize C’s closet (again and the one I’m looking forward to the least)
  • Clean the blinds
  • Have the A/C cleaned and checked
  • Organize the linen closet

I’m most excited about the pantry. It’s seriously a disaster and having fairly deep shelves doesn’t help so I know I’ll need some sort of baskets or bins.

Kitchen Pantry Before

I think the problem with looking on Pinterest for ideas is what works for some families won’t work for others. I love this tip from Alejandra on using the narrow cabinet (we have one of those!) since right now it’s making people in my family angry with a ton of baking sheets and cutting boards.

Here are some other inspiring spaces:


from Keep it Simple Keep it Fresh


from I Heart Organizing


from Delightful Order


from The Social Home


from The House of Smiths

Have you done anything with your pantry organization that you wish you would have done a long time ago? I’d love to hear some tips!
