Pantry Prowess

Let’s get one thing straight: I love me some good obsessive compulsive behavior. And although I’ve been known to color-code my color-coding, I’m especially OCD when it comes to my kitchen.

During the move to Switzerland in 2009, our moving company “misplaced” two boxes which just so happened to be chalk-full of all my precious Tupperware (and my yoga mat  — talk about random pack job).  With all my beloved Tupperware not properly insured (screw you paperwork loopholes!), it left me suffering from KCD, otherwise known as Kitchen Chaos Disorder.  But no more!

Enter: IKEA.

The place I love to hate and hate to love.

I noticed an advertisement for their PRUTA food storage containers last week and well, twist my rubber arm but an hour of kid-free wandering is worth the drive (thank you IKEA Playroom!). So off we went to check it out.To my surprise, the containers were fairly decent.  This isn’t the stuff you pass down to your children’s children or anything (that would be my Tupperware that’s floating somewhere in the Pacific) but it was sturdy enough for pantry storage and is BPA-free. So I bought four sets and $16 later was organizing my kitchen with a giddy school girl skip to my step while I photo-texted all my friends to show off my new pretty cupboards. Yeah, I’m weird like that.

White labels covered with a piece of scotch tape should hold out for a few washes before needing to be replaced.

Come on — try and tell me that this cupboard doesn’t make you all sorts of happy?! Especially when you see what they looked like before!

Domestically Yours,

    Sweet lookin’ cupboards. You know professional organizers get paid big bucks around here! Oh wait, we can’t work in this Country, right, right.
    Happy Canada Day!
