Simplify Life Challenge: The Pantry

Sunday, January 9, 2011. I actually took these pictures a week or so ago. My first challenge in simplifying and organizing was my pantry. The hard part? I don't have one! I had to "create" a pantry out of two cabinets in my kitchen. Thanks to the Container Store, my label maker and red Rubbermaid I'm good to go. I actually LOVE this system. It's easy to find everything and I can tell at a glance what I need to pick up at the grocery store.

Happy New Year!

January 1, 2011. It's (finally) a new year. I've settled on a theme, or set of themes, for the blog and I'm writing again. For the next several months I'll be writing about 3 broad categories:

My Bucket List-Not things I want to do before I die, but things I want to do before 2011 is over.

Life Simplified-Things that fall into the broad categories of living a simpler, greener, more organized,less expensive lifestyle. I've collected a series of "challenges" from other writers and I'll be working through them.

Favorite Things-Sharing some of the things I've found that make my life easier, more comfortable or just plain happier.

Not to worry, there will still be occasional posts from Leroy Earl written under the title, Deep Thoughts from a Shallow Well.

I'm not promising to past daily or even weekly but I will get into a rhythm as I figure out this new format. I've sure missed my little blog!
