There is a drawback to bargain shopping...clutter! It seems that each time I find a good deal on food or paper goods I always end up having trouble finding a place to store it as well as keeping it all organized. Nothing is a bargain if you forget to use it up before your item expires.
Our water heater is located in a very small closet like room. There is plenty of extra space in this room which works well as a second pantry....but I needed to find a better way to use this space without it looking cluttered.
My solution was to invest in a small shelf unit. It's nothing fancy, and it's made of plastic, but the large spacious shelves are perfect for keeping my pantry items separated and organized.
It always amazes me how an organized home has such a calming effect on everyone, especially me :O)
