Alright…NOW I’m back! Apparently, my blog host just got too small for me, and I crashed three times in a couple of days. RAR! Thankfully, I have a genius on my team (and by team, I mean me and him). Let there be no doubt that Tony from Evenpar Solutions is my lifeline. Thanks to him, I’m on a “big league” server, and there will be no more crashes! Let’s move on, shall we?
My absolute least favorite part about grocery shopping? Putting them away. Perhaps it’s because I feel the need to organize my cabinets and clean out my fridge with each trip to the store. What better time, right?
JaG’s kids seem to think it is an essential part of life to finish off a box of something and leave the box in the cabinet. Can I get an Amen?? Of course, this is in addition to finishing off the juice or milk and leaving the carton in the fridge. Can a get a what what?
Can I show ya what I did to help with the craziness of cartons? Here’s a hint—
I went to Ikea and bought a ton of containers (not really, they’re light) to give the cabinets a more unified, stream-lined look. They work brilliantly.
It’s much easier to see where we’re running low, and it keeps crumpled up boxes of crackers from disappearing into the back of the cabinets. It also keeps The Nemesis from grabbing a box while no one’s looking and obliterating it all over the living room floor.
I’m sure some cute labels would be great here, but I just want to throw ‘em in the dishwasher when need be. Do other people say “need be?”
A word of precaution: I picked these up because they were on sale (duh) and because I liked how tall and skinny they are. However, they can get pretty top-heavy and fall over when empty. In other words—annoying.
I think I’ll be asking Santa a.k.a mom for some different ones for Christmas. You hearin’ me, Mama? Any suggestions? Love how narrow they are, but…
