Happy Hump Day friends! It feels like it should be Friday to me already and it’s been a 2-cup kind of day every day this week! Daylight savings time is rocking our world but I won’t be complaining long because I love the sunshine
In light of my current kitchen and dining room reno I decided to go ahead and cross off a very big ‘to do’ item off of my list: The Pantry. My pantry was in dire need of a good cleaning and reorganizing and if I had any energy left I would have painted it too! Oops, better add that to the list :)
When Fiskars, the company known for the bright, Orange-Handled Scissors, reached out to me to try their Tag Maker I knew exactly how I would use it in my pantry refresh. I had no idea but Fiskars has been in business since 1649 and is celebrating their 365 anniversary! Talk about a good business plan!
I already had these small, white bins I found at the dollar section in Target as well as my favorite clear plastic bins from Ikea. I knew the tags would fit perfectly tied onto the white bins and for the plastic ones I just used some double sided tape. Neither solution is permanent so I can switch the tags if I realize the categories are not working for us.
The Tag Maker is so easy to use and it comes in several different shapes. I chose the scallop tag and paired it with these striped index cards we had on hand. It also has an eyelet setter so you can easily thread a string through it to tie to your basket or bin. Anytime I’m in need for string I grab one of my 10 rolls of twine I have lying around.
To use the Tag Maker you just slide your card or paper into the large slot and push the handle down to cut out your tag.
Then slide one side of your tag into the smaller slot, push the handle, then repeat on the other side. When you have your holes punched, place the tag (where the hole is) on the eyelet setter, place the eyelet on top of the hole then push and you’re ready to go!
Our pantry is one of the few storage areas downstairs so I will admit we store some random things in here. How many pairs of sunglasses and reading glasses can one gal need? And paint chips….need I say more?
I was so happy to throw out the expired food, get rid of things we didn’t need anymore and create a space for everything. It was a great way to jumpstart the spring cleaning.
I know my son is going to ask me why I had to write in cursive because he can’t read it yet so I have a feeling I’ll be making some more tags.
Now I want to tag and label everything! I going to tag my storage bins in my office, teacher gifts, little man’s toy storage, hostess gifts…you name it and I’m tagging it!!!
Oh and so can you because Fiskars is giving away 5 of these babies to my readers and you can choose what shape you love. Just enter through the rafflecopter widget below and hopefully you’ll have one arriving on your doorstep!
I mean, are they not the cutest???
I hope you all have a lovely day and good luck! Make sure to tag me on Instagram with your organizing pics if you win!
