Project 1: Give The Pantry An Overhaul

The pantry is one of the most used areas in your home and can quickly descend into chaos. When it comes to your pantry it pays (literally!) to be organized as you can reduce food waste and ensure the food in your pantry stays fresh and accessible.

We love this budget pantry makeover that was completed by the team at Howards Storage World. Click here to see how you too can easily action a pantry makeover this weekend.
