This is no Pinterest Post.

I decided last week that my laundry room/pantry needed a makeover, or at least needed to not look so incredibly depressing and cluttered.  So I went to my local Dollar Tree (the mecca of cheap storage containers) and got to work on it this morning.

It quickly occurred to me that all those **perfectly** organized room pics on Pinterest must be by fake "normal women" on fake blogs created by companies like the Container Store and Ikea to boost sales. 

It also occurred to me that I will never have such a picture perfect room. 

But I made some progress!  It took all of 30 minutes and 
I'm much happier when I walk in there already.  

I still have a lot more I want to do in there - but this was a simple morning project that made a huge difference (even with a terrible allergy headache!)

Before - Ack!!! 

After - Ahhhhhhh!
 Green = Food (extra canned goods)
Also got all my new gluten-free stuffs (flours, quinoa, rice, etc in airtight containers) 
Yellow = not edible (cleaning products, air fresheners, etc)
