I have a confession to make.
I am a hoarder.
Not this kind of hoarder…..
Or this kind:
More like this kind:
Ok, so maybe I don’t have quite that much food, but with 5 kids and a husband to feed, there’s more than our cupboards can hold.
Here are the 4 who will be seen with me in public.
Also, I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I see the fully stocked fridge, freezer and cupboards after I grocery shop. I know. I’m sick.
Fortunately for me, our house has a cold cellar which we currently don’t use. Why don’t we use it, you ask?
Because it looks like this:
The time has come to fix up this mildewy spider hang-out. So I’ve been scouring the internet for inspiring pantries.
Just look at all of those perfectly lined-up canisters!
I’m dreaming about what I’d fill those drawers up with…..
Baskets and canisters? Is this heaven?
I wish we had a room this big to hold food!
Ideally, if I actually owned this house, I’d be ripping the shelving out and replacing it. But there are other things that need to be done around here more urgently, like painting the carport and black-topping the driveway. So the shelves are staying, and I’m going to spruce them up. A lot. So now you know how I’ll be spending my day; painting.
And in preparation for having a new food storage area, today I went out……
And joined Costco!
Look for me soon on an episode of Hoarders.
And come back to my blog to see the finished project!
