Step one of spring cleaning was to tackle our pantry (it was more of an overhaul). It’s amazing how a tiny pantry can hide so much! I discovered some ingredients that I had no idea existed in there, which meant they needed to be tossed.
I’m a little embarrassed to show you what my pantry used to look like, but I hope it inspires you to tidy up your pantry. And, make sure to enter the Progressive Keepers Giveaway below (you don’t have to be a mom to enter) Did I mention there are two winners? And the Winners are…
Now for the before pictures (eeek, eeek, eeek!! Somebody close the door!):

Here’s a closer look at disaster:
Bags of flour (cringe) :-/
I despised that little yellow garbage can turned onion holder lined with plastic bags.
We started by gutting the whole thing. My son enjoyed this part.
I’m breathing easier now:
I think my pantry is a happier place. Thanks Progressive! My husband stood back and just stared in adoration at our pantry after it was clean. It was his dream come true (he’s Mr. Tidy pants).
Here’s what is included in the giveaway and each winner will win the full set of keepers (minus the labels that I printed off at home and the food inside of the keepers ;)).
1. Flour Keeper. Did you notice this is (1) Big and (2) it has a scraper for exact measurements? Progressive makes the ideal flour keeper.
2. Brown Sugar Keeper: You soak this special terracotta disk for 15 min in room temp water, pat it dry and put it into your brown sugar to keep it from drying out up to 3 months!
3. Progressive Powdered Sugar Keeper: This has very handy sifter and scraper features!
4. Progressive’s Mini Keeper is great for herbs, spices or in my case; baking soda. I got tired of reaching into that little cardboard box and having to keep the box covered with a ziploc bag. I love how it has a way to scrape the spoon and get an exact measurement
5. The Bread Keeper by Progressive is pretty cool. It holds two Costco-sized loaves and keeps bread, croissants, bagels or any baked goods fresh. This keeper has a convenient little slicing bread board in there and adjustable air vents.
A huge THANK YOU to Progressive for donating the items for this giveaway and inspiring me to clean the pantry. Check out all of Progressive’s Innovative products by visiting their website. Also make sure to show them some Like on Progressive’s facebook page. 🙂
