My passions are cooking, traveling, reading, teaching….. organizing space and maintaining order are not strengths I have ever had! Though I have periodically attempted over the past ten years in my home to make sense of the many pantry items I use and acquire, my pantry had repeatedly gotten out of control, leading me to either have to dismantle it shelf by shelf to find what I needed or abandon my food preparation intentions altogether. In one afternoon, with Maureen helping me sort, organize, categorize, and plan, I now have a completely attractive and usable space in the pantry. It is a thrill to see it each time I open it. Even after weeks of removing things for use and adding things back after shopping, the system Maureen set up remains in place. I feel like I will be able to sustain this organization this time, for the first time since moving in a decade ago. What a relief this is for a busy mom like me!
