I thought I would share with you all some of the projects I have been doing lately, I have been a busy bee!!! Seeing a lot of pins on Pinterest of bloggers insanely organized pantries…….inspired me! Here is my before…….

 Here is the crazy “during”……And there were 2 more counters like this and a kitchen table that was covered! It’s amazing how much 1 pantry can hold!

 I got all the bins, jars and baskets at Walmart…Pretty cheap but even things that are cheap add up!

 Here is the finished project, it’s not perfect but it is so much better!!!! And this took me about 3 hours, not too bad! Later that night Matt opened the door and goes “Woah, what happened” haha! Men.

 Next up, I have decided not to deck the whole house out in my Fall and Halloween just yet because my family hasn’t seen my house on a normal day….ya know? But I couldn’t resist adding a few touches.

 I got outdoor paint and this great circle sponge at Hobby Lobby…………..Both were really cheap and then the decorator pumpkins were 1/2 off this week!

 Polka Dot pumpkins!!! This one is now living in the front with some mums….

 And this guy is now on my deck………… this was SO easy and they are super cute!

 I also spruced up the patio with some fall touches to welcome my family when they come!

 OK…..lastly I changed up my closet a little bit (a big closet organization is next on the list)….I found this idea on Pinterest (where else)….that empty shelf use to house a huge pile of purses…

 Bella helping me out…….such a helper. Actually she was just mad I moved her snuggly window chair to the closet to stand on!

 I hung a shower rod and then used the shower curtain rings to hang my purses on!!!! Love it! Now I can see them all and they are not getting smashed! This easy closet update only took 10 minutes…you should try it!

Whew! Ok, I am off to clean my family comes tomorrow night…………
