Photo Story Friday....The Pantry Project

So as I promised here are pictures of the pantry project.  It turned into a little more than I expected.  To be honest I want to rip all the wire shelving out and start completely over but that is a DIY project for another day. 

 For now I used some baskets from Walmart and did my best with what I have. 

 I even dug out my old label maker and started labeling away until I ran out of tape. Oops!
If you think it still looks bad this is what I threw away....
I know totally embarrassing.  It is a work in progress.  I plan to inventory everything in there tomorrow because I had 4 bottles of worcestershire sauce really that may last until well past the expiration date lets just say.  I also have enough seasonings to flavor an entire third world country.  That's a lot in case you don't get my sarcasm.  Anyway I like the baskets with the handles so I can just pull them out and see what's inside.  I'm pretty short so this makes it possible for me to utilize all my pantry space.  
I will keep you posted on the DIY re-shelving project.....ahem... if it ever happens. 
I am joining up with Lolli at Better in Bulk for Photo Story Friday.

Give me your best shot at Better in BulkPhotoStory Friday

I was not compensated or provided an product for this project I just thought I would let you all know where I got the baskets.  You know incase anyone gets inspired.

How to get Urine/Sweat stains out of your Mattress

If you have kids you have pee stains I know it.  If you don't lucky you or you are a liar and in denial.  I have pee stains on more than one mattress.  I also have sweat stains on pillows because well I sweat a.lot .  It's a gift I know. I digress. Anyway I have tried many different ways to get urine/pee out of mattresses and I have been very unsuccessful so I did a google search and what do you know?  Another mom had pee stains too.  So I borrowed her recipe and it totally worked so I am sharing it with you. All you need are these few house-hold ingredients and a spray bottle.  I bought a really expensive one (NOT) I used one I had for my kids hair.  It worked great. You will need: 3 Tablespoons Baking Soda 8 ounces Hydrogen peroxide 1 drop dish soap Mix together well and use right away. My mom discovered that if it is not mixed well the baking soda will clog the sprayer.  You also can't store this apparently it doesn't last in the bottle and it is no longe

A Quick Poll

So I have been reading a LOT lately about how dark backgrounds with light text are difficult to read for many blog readers.  So I changed my blog.  I am not sure that I LOVE it but if you would leave a comment and let me know if this is a little friendlier to your eyes I would appreciate the feedback.  Thanks! Don't worry about offending me I can take corrective criticism I am asking for it here.  Post edit: So I took your advice and lightened up the grey.  I tried white background and it just wasn't as calming to me.  So hope you all like my new look.  Thanks for the input I appreciate it!
