I’ve been on a bit of a labeling kick lately. I think it’s the Back-to-School-y feel in the air that makes me want to organize the heck out of everything in sight. That or I’m addicted to using my Silhouette machine and like to make up projects which require me to use it. Either way, things are whipping into shape around here!
So, I was making some cookies recently and I opened up my “baking cabinet” (I say that all fancy-like but really it’s just my lazy susan corner cabinet) and I wanted to cry. Not tears of joy, mind you. Tears of “how does one live like this?” It was a dis. as. ter. Certifiable. Three or four half used bags of flour and sugar all rolled down at the top and piled on top of each other. Spilled chocolate chips every where coming from opened and half empty bags. A sprinkling of salt or sugar (hard to tell which without a taste test and no, I wasn’t going to taste it) all over one of the shelves. Gross.
I stopped right there and just started pulling everything out. I should have gotten a before picture but this was one of those projects you’re halfway into before you even realize what you’re doing. So I didn’t. Sorry.
Now, because I don’t keep my canisters on my counter, I didn’t feel the need to spend a small fortune on nice glass ones with the cute silver tops. BUT I did want them to be cute. Because cute makes me happy and happy is the goal.
I went to WalCrap and picked up two sets of these for about $6 each.
