First, a little background ...
We offered to buy this current house when we thought we had a solid offer on the previous house. We closed 6 months later ... to the same couple who made the first offer. We left enough in the first house for us to live in when we had to return to Nashville. That included kitchen items and cleaning products. So when we were able to finally consolidate our belongings, we had a lot of duplicate items, especially in the home maintenance arena. And we inherited a lot of the same supplies with this house as it had been cleaned weekly while it was on the market.
There was little logic to where I had put things and the chaos was starting to get to me, so I used this period of hibernation to do a little organizing. You have already heard about the studio organization. Now it was time to attack other parts of the house.
Last week I started with the pantry.
Let me just say that this pantry was a huge selling feature of this house! Yesterday I cleaned out the utility closet.
DH now has strict instructions not to add anything to our shopping list without checking our current supplies!
