DH took the next step to getting the pantry shelves done. He went and got the lumber this morning at the town lumber store. I am hoping to have some pantry shelves by the end of this week! Originally we were going to do some wood shelves with these metal brackets, but dang, the brackets were pretty spendy and would have been several hundred dollars just in brackets. He decided to mount them on "rail" of wood secured to the wall, if that makes sense. Way cheaper. His lumber store total came to $118.
First he'll need to measure again, then cut his lengths. Then stain them and let dry. Then he can start installing them. He's using heavy duty black screws and I think he already has enough of those left from a previous purchase.
I want to get some airtight canisters to put a lot of the food in. I'm kind of watching for a good deal. I think that is what I will put my $50 giftcard towards. I'm thinking this large set for $90. I've also been looking at lots of recipes for making your own mixes, like taco seasoning, cream of soup, brownie mix, etc. I also want to get a few baskets to put on the shelves, so I think next time I have time to go into Ross store, I'll look there. They usually have low priced stuff like that.
I'm having a good day with MTurks. At $13.68 for far, from quick hits that are paying well and also just received an email that I got a $2.50 bonus.
That's about all that's going on today, other than still super busy with work.
