It’s week 2 of Project Simplify and the focus is on kitchens and pantries. After reading many of the week one posts on Simple Mom, I’m excited to tackle the next challenge.   My big project is creating a pantry.  Not a small project and it’s one that I started a couple of weeks ago.  There was a lot of dead space in my storage areas so I went to work on maximizing my space.

These are before pictures of what we call our “recycling closet.”  It’s near the kitchen and dining room so it’s easy to access, which was so important in setting up a recycling zone.  My favorite thing in there are our recycling bins, which are stacked 3 high to accommodate plastic/glass/tin, paper and $.05/cans.  All changes needed to work around keeping this area accessible.
The challenging part of the closet is the lack of shelves in the mid-section of the closet.  We added in a shallow bookshelf for the bottom half that works fine.  It’s just a tad cluttered at the moment.

Here’s a sneak peek into what you can expect from the final reveal on Friday.

What’s the biggest storage struggle for you in the kitchen?

    Can't wait to see the after pictures! Our "pantry" is actually in our entry way, and isn't walled in, so it becomes a catchall for everything and anything. I didn't get a chance to work on that this week, instead focusing on my fridge…which was equally disastrous 🙂
