I have finally been able to organize our pantry!
I cannot tell you how much I love this pantry! It is so much more convenient that my previous pantry…not to mention prettier!
Do you remember my old pantry? Yep. That’s Cy in there tearing it down while my kids eat dinner.
Our previous pantry was small, dark, and deep. Food got lost in there!
Now my pantry is big, light, and shallow!
I can find my food easily and quickly.
I admit that I do not keep my pantry as stocked as some people do. I keep the basics in the pantry. When cooking dinner, I usually go to the store that day to get the supplies I need.
My favorite part of the pantry is my little tin buckets. I got those at Goodwill and put some chalkboard labels on them.
I had them in my previous pantry on the side wall.
I made some more chalkboard labels for my baskets.
Those labels are not only decorative, but functional. It really does help the boys and Cy find things more easily in the pantry.
I put my cookbooks on the top shelf along with two baskets that hold my cloth napkins.
(Eventually I will be moving my cookbooks to a new area once Cy builds it for me.) I hope to show you that soon.
I love my organized pantry because it is about the only space in our home that is organized right now! Ha!
My shallow, organized pantry also makes it easy for me to tell when I am running low on items.
For instance, notice how my cereal containers are mostly empty?
Guess what I’m gonna be buying today?
So, does your pantry need organizing?
