Organizing Life: The pantry.

July 17, 2012

This week, I organized my pantry. 

One day, I will have a real pantry with a door, shelves and light. Until then, I am making do with our kitchen cabinets. We have quite a bit of storage in our kitchen, so we keep our main food in these kitchen cabinets and extra boxes of foods like cereal and crackers in a separate cabinet that isn't so convenient. It works.
I went through each shelf and rid of any expired items and empty boxes. Our top shelf holds all of our snacks. Chris, being tall, can easily access these treats. I have a bit more of a stretch. I wanted to create a system for all of the snacks to make it easy for both of us.
I found these small plastic baskets in the Target dollar aisle - two for $2.50. I am sure you can get them even cheaper at the Dollar Store. I added some labels and sorted the snacks.


Much easier to grab and go!

  1. Looks great!! I love those little baskets - so useful!

    After traveling for the past three weeks, I am happy to be back home and ready to get organizing again! Can't wait to link up later this week.
