Pantry Organization- Real Life Tips That Work

I have organized my pantry a number of times over the years.  Over and over and over again.  You could definitely say that pantry organization has been on my mind a lot.  I often wondered why I was unable to keep my carefully organized space neat and orderly.  

 

In all honesty, organizing has NEVER been my strong suit.  I have struggled with it from the moment I became a mother.  I have definitely learned a lot of the tips I am sharing through personal failures.  I can tell you so many ways that didn't work!

Easter Printables

This time of year is very significant for me.  I have always loved spring because it has been such a wonderful physical reminder of much deeper spiritual truth.  I wanted to make Easter Printables that reflected that.

 

Every year I look forward to seeing the first green plants pop out of the ground.  I anticipate the time when the trees will start to bloom and I turn my face upward as the sky warms everything up after the long, long winter.

For me, food is a great way to do that.  

 

Easter Home Tour

This year I am happy to share my first ever Easter home tour!  My goal was to keep my decorations simple.  I also decided to challenge my creative juices by reusing decorations that I already have and finding new ways to bring them to life.

 

I've talked about it before, but I'll say it again.  I think its really smart to find a few key pieces that you love and can use in different spaces throughout your home and from season to season.  I think it's fun to find new ways to use these same things.  

Easter Decor DIY

This year I wanted to refresh some of my Easter decorations.  If you have read any of my other holiday decorating posts, you know how much I love to change my decorations from year to year.  So, I created a simple Easter decor DIY project.

 

The  catch is that I don't want to spend a lot of time or money on new decorations, so I am always trying to find creative ways to use what I have and to supplement with inexpensive items for a big impact with minimal effort.
