Then one day, she had an epiphany. "I'll organize my pantry!" she thought. "But how?"
She jumped on the internet and came across many lovely organizational ideas, but all required a larger budget than she had available.
The she had another epiphany. "I can just affix a laminated tag to my wire shelves under where each item should go," she said.
But then she realized that printing, laminating, and cutting all those tiny tags would be quite time consuming and could be a bit costly. "If only I already had some little plastic tags that I could just insert a label into and attach to my wire shelves," she said.
And then she had a third epiphany. "I have oodles of extra labels from the hanging file folders that I use in my filing cabinet. Maybe those will work." And they did!
She went to her computer and typed up the names of the foods she had. Then she cut them out and slid them into the plastic holders. But what she did next was the real ingenious thing.
She slid the labels in between the wires on her shelf and they stayed--no tape or ties or anything!
Now her pantry is neat and tidy. And she can always find what she needs for her recipe and can always see when its time to pick an item up at the grocery store.
And she and her pantry lived happily ever after.
