YEA! I actually got my pantry organized, wiped down, and labeled. I wasn’t positive it would happen this week, but once I got it started it was really only about an hour…. It took me longer to figure out how to make a stupid simple sheet of labels on the Mac more than anything else – put together!
So, once I got the labels done – I printed it on a sheet of labels I had and used about 18″ of contact paper, also something I have on hand…so, essentially free :-D, my kind of project!
I simply put the label on my containers, then so I could wipe them off and re-name if wanted, I covered them with a piece of contact paper.
I didn’t know some of my flours need to be refrigerated, so I did a little rearranging there too. I believe with the labels my Gluten Free stuff is less likely to get contaminated. My family just doesn’t get it, not to be mean, but just not thinking about it. I’m hoping with the red containers and ‘GF’ written on containers that are needing to stay Gluten Free it helps them stop and think before using. For twelve years mom’s pantry has been my go-to if I ran out, and my pantry has been her go-to…that is a hard habit to break. I’m not even trying to break it, just re-train. I’m hoping with the shelves labeled my kids will be better about helping keep the pantry clean.
