Contrary to what you see most of the time here at the Bugle, our lives are not completely filled with travel, history and fun. In fact, most of our time is spent working and maintaining our domestic world here in Luxembourg.
For those who haven’t been counting, we have lived in Luxembourg for just over a year and a half. In the last 20 months, we’ve created a home that we love and enjoy.
Except for the pantry.
Our pantry had, over the last several months, morphed into a nightmare. Returning from our US holiday, I knew that I could not just throw the new food in there — the whole thing needed to be cleaned and reorganized. Hello Ikea!
Unfortunately, I didn’t get a shot of the pantry before some items were removed. This is with about 30% pulled out already.
Of course, we had to buy new stuff — from Ikea!
And we had to sort through every piece that was in there. Which was an excellent exercise, even it if did make us both want to cry.
We had an “Us Against the Pantry” attitude, so there was much less bickering than you’d expect.
In the end, we have an organized, clean and pretty pantry. It took nearly two days, but it was worth it.
Can’t get enough pantry pics? There’s a little Flickr set for you!
