So we are living with small islands of order in a vast sea of chaos.
Exhibit A: Order...the pantry.
As pantries go, it is pretty small. But since I haven't had a real pantry since I moved out of my childhood home, I'm very happy with it. The plan is to keep most of the staples in glass jars. (I have a lot more glass jars...somewhere...I haven't found them yet.) Boxed rice mixes, seasoning pouches, etc. are in the basket on the left...teas and hot chocolate are in the middle basket...and cloth napkins are in the basket on the right. The white containers on the floor are for recycling.
Exhibit B: Chaos...the office.
What can I possibly say? We went to IKEA last week, and bought shelves. I started putting them together today.
It could take awhile.
