Why, in only a few months, an antique schoolhouse light could be shining down on homemade pickles and preserves! Neat shelves of glass jars would hold bulk grains, while vintage aprons showcase beauty and utility.

I'd clean and organize, then fall back into disorder. Since John's birth, the pantry has been my lost cause. Forget cute--I needed functional solutions.
I'm opening the door on my pantry failure because it's ultimately a question of stewardship.
- Am I making the most of the space I have been given?
- How much money has this chaos cost my family?
- Have I let a disheartening area define the way I work?
I asked my organizing friend Tanna Clark for a virtual consult. (Read her personal suggestions here.)
Tomorrow I will share how I'm tackling the problem.
