Kitchen/Pantry Organization

Hi All!!  So one of the struggles we all go through is organization.  If you don't - God Bless You & please give me your secret :)  I for one am a mess!  It gets to a point where nothing fits, I don't have room for anything and I get frustrated trying to find a place for all my stuff.  So, that's when I finally decide to take a day and take everything out - throw away what I don't need or use and figure out where everything needs to be.  Then, decide if I need to buy anything to help with the organization-which I try to avoid in an effort to not spend money. 

This month, part of my coach's Beachbody Challenge Group is tidying up.  She recommended we read or listen to Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind & Soul.  So I am listening on Audible and it has inspired me to organize.   I decided to start with my kitchen being that this has been my biggest struggle.  I have a small kitchen, not many cabinets and I want to keep things off the counter so everything looks nice & neat. 

Let's start with the closet that I want to use a pantry.  Absolutely no organization in here what so ever


Now to empty out the cabinets




Someone keeps getting in my way :/  He's no help


After emptying out the closet and cabinets, I realized that we needed some kind of shelving for the closet to convert it into a pantry.  We took a ride to Sams Club, Target, Walmart and Home Depot where we finally found something.  After several hours of work, I finally finished.
Our closet now looks like this:


It still needs work, its not how I want it to look but for now it will do.  I want to get some bins and group things better, but being that I do lack this organizational skill, I will have to really think about this and look at other people's blogs & videos on You Tube.

My kitchen is also looking better:



These carts used to have all the cookie and cereal boxes, now it looks much better! Don't ya think?


This is my command center/cookbook shelf.  This stayed the same, didn't really change anything here.


And my favorite part of my kitchen - my coffee bar!  I've been trying to keep up with decorating it for every season & I'm loving every minute of it.


So my kitchen is set up the way I like it and I'm happy with it for now!  

Next project is my bedroom & closets!

How do you organize?
Any ideas & tips to share?
