Tips for Organizing a Pantry!

This weekend I decided it was time for me to actually figure out a neat plan for my pantry. When I first moved in I bought a couple baskets and jars. But, everything still just ended up looking messy. When things are messy it gets so hard to find things that you need and things get forgotten.

Brace yourself! This is the before picture and I don’t even know how it got like this!

I definitely needed to get more baskets, smaller jars and a shelf so I would be able to see everything I have without moving everything around.

I went to homegoods and Marshall’s to get most of the stuff I needed. It’s way cheaper then The Container Store and I think they have really cute stuff!

This is what I came up with!

 

 

As you can see, I dedicated the top shelf to my little furry child. I found these super cute white and black cat baskets that I used to store her extra food and treats. In the middle, I found this Rae Dunn jar that just says meow and that holds her everyday dry food! So cute!

The next shelf I did all my jars, they still don’t all match yet but we’re working on it!

I bought these from IKEA a while ago and it makes pastas and rice look a lot better in glass jars rather than boxes!

I found a white metal shelf that’s originally for plates but it works so well to be able to see all the jars at once.

Next I decided to put all my canned goods. I bought this 3 level shelf to put everything in order and it made the biggest difference!

What to you think?! Let me know in the comments below!!

How to set up a Hot Cocoa Bar

This year was the first time Chris and I hosted my family on Christmas Eve!

We cooked all the food and decorated the house and as I was planning the decor I decided to jump on the trend of cocoa bars and I’m really glad I did!

Here’s my setup and where I got all the goodies!

Most of the stuff is from HomeGoods or Marshalls.

The twinkling lights are on Amazon and they were pretty inexpensive.

The cute little coffee cups are from Stop & Shop.

The straws are from Michaels!

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetIMG_4144IMG_4742IMG_6279I really liked how it turned out and I think it’s a great idea for when you throw parties so everyone can just help themselves!

If you wanted this for all year round, I feel like you can mix and match for different holidays and seasons and it would be really cute!

Hope this inspires you in these cold winter months.

My Desk Essentials

 

I recently reorganized my desk, which I do all the time because I’m never happy with it. Or maybe I just like rearranging things, hah.

My set up is pretty simple. I like my desk to be pretty empty so I have room to do my DIYS, crafts and my planner.

What’s On My Desk:

I  have an iMac desktop that I got at Best Buy.

I like to keep my pens and markers in theses planters I got from Ikea. I love how clean they look, plus they don’t break the bank!

Some of the pencils I have in there are Ban.do Pencil set and there so cute! They each have a compliment written on them, it makes me not even want to use them haha.

The candle/ring holder and crystal were gifts.

The little plant is from Target.

The glass case the plant is in is from Amazon! Glass Terrarium

The book under that is my Q&A 5-year journal. I love things like this because I like looking back and see how much ive changed and grown as a person.

Above everything on the wall I have a Scratch Map! Overtime as I travel I get to scratch off where I’ve been and be inspired to travel more and see the world.

Last I have water. Whenever I’m on the computer I like to drink water and this brand is really cool. Boxed Water has a goal to save the planet and recycle more and I’m all about that so check out their website to learn more about them.
