It’s the April edition of LET’S LOOK!
If you don’t know what this is, once a month, Erika and I do a little link up where we “look” at different aspects of our lives (and then if you blog, you share and link up too!). It’s often a random little assortment of topics.
And today, we’re looking at our FRIDGE & PANTRY!
Whose dumb idea what it to look inside my fridge and pantry?
Oh that’s right…it was mine.
Bahahaha! What was I thinking???
Okay, after 14 years of being “an influencer”, I know the drill…fill your refrigerator with colorful and bright fruits and veggies, lots of pretty glass bottles and remove all of the other “crap” (for lack of a better word). I contemplated this for about ten seconds until I realized that I’ll never be that kind of influencer (see all of my other subpar pics as proof) and just opened up the dang fridge and took pictures. Andrew happened to be in there at the time, and he was a bit like “you’re going to just take pics of it like that?”. Yes. Yes, I am.
Please note: I am sitting here at my desk upstairs, and I just uploaded all of my pics and realized that while I took pictures of my fridge, I totally forgot about my freezer. Sigh. Again. I could walk down there and do that for you, but instead, I’ll just describe it: it’s a very cold place filled with a lot of frozen Trader Joe’s things. There. That saved me the trip downstairs. 😉 .
Hi, my name is Shay and I like condiments. I love to add a sauce (especially spicy) to just about everything I eat. I also think, the more pickles the merrier.
In a nutshell, we have some bagged salads (great for lunches or the base of a side salad), lemons, apples, oranges, a lot of cheeses and meats for our charcuterie boards, Vanilla milk (all Madeley), more cheese, some cotton candy grapes, more cheese, sausages, tomatoes, more cheese, a variety of beverages, ground beef, eggs and more cheese.
A closer look. I mean…so glamourous 😉 .
I always wish my fridge looked like one of those gorgeous ones with the glass fronts, but let’s be honest, where would I store my three different bottles of Buffalo sauce?
Next up, my pantry.
A few things to note.
First, do you remember that old Julia Roberts movie called Sleeping with the Enemy? Her terrible, abusive, murderous husband makes her keep the pantry cans all lined up, and if she has one out of order, he flips his lid? Yeah, he’s a terrible person in the movie, but I so relate to his need to have cans lined up and boxes tidy.
The fact that that one gluten-free cake mix box is upside down in this picture is enough to make me want to go back down there right now and flip it around. Ha! Guys, it’s a nice big space, but I just cannot become one of those amazing “bins and baskets” people I so love and respect.
I’m kind of at a loss…this whole post makes me want to take the rest of the week off and organize my pantry. I mean…it’s organized chaos in there. If you are looking at my pics now and have all of these great ideas, products and suggestions for how I can tidy things up, by all means, please comment and share! In the meantime, I’m just going to turn the light off, shut the door and walk away. It just seems less complicated.
Tell me about YOUR FRIDGE AND PANTRY? Is it amazing? So organized? We clearly buy several things in bulk (a.k.a. condiments, I am clearly so darn afraid the world will have a mustard/pickles/spicy sauce shortage). Andrew and I had a real sit down after this about his almond butter hoarding too. Seven jars, Andrew? Seven? Have you ever known the store not to have almond butter? No. Why do we have seven jars???
I’ve got to go now. I am going to read your comments and get inspired to tackle my fridge and pantry! Next month, we’re looking at OUTDOOR ORGANIZATION, friends, Andrew is in charge of that, so it’s all nice and tidy! 😉
I can’t wait to read your comments!!! Have the best day! xx
