As it’s almost time for the kids to go back to school that means it’s time to get organized. My boys
have the annoying habit of finishing a box of cookies or cereal and leaving the empty container in
the cupboard. No worries, I have a solution: buy clear plastic containers and chalkboard labels and
create an organized oasis for your perishables! Now everything has a place and the food stays
organized and fresh, no matter what the kids try to do to my pantry!
What you’ll need:
clear plastic containers
chalk or erasable chalk pen
Let’s get started:
Step 1: Buy clear containers of different sizes to store all your food and stickers.
Step 2: Label each container with a chalkboard sticker and chalk pen.
Empty the pantry and wash it down. Put the food in individual containers and
place back in the cupboard so everything is easy to find.
Easy! Done! Enjoy!
