The pantry.....top, middle, and bottom. Eeewww!!
This, my dear readers, is the floor of my pantry BEFORE I tackled it. Yea, yuck.
Maybe it's not terrible, but for me, I couldn't stand it anymore. As you work your way up the shelves, you see more clutter......
I know...bags of snacks, a milkshake maker, sometimes one of my crockpots, and other various things live on the top shelf. In between these two shelves, are somewhat organized.....and random.....foods as well.
I decided to take matters into my own hands. I wanted a simple way to store and contain our foods. It had to be FUNCTIONAL, REALISTIC, and INEXPENSIVE.
Here is the end result:
containers. I also had some canvas bins and some clear food storage containers to use.
My favorite part is the bottom....
I used this fun Sterilite
storage unit to store our baggies, foils/wraps, and extra paper towels. All these things, except the paper towels, were in a kitchen drawer. That drawer was freed up for utensils
I also trimmed down the spice rack....and put all the baking spices in a plastic shoebox on the top shelf of the pantry. Beside it are my cookie cutters and decorating supplies. By putting these in the pantry, I was able to rearrange my baking cabinet and it's not so overcrowded now.
I know it's not Better Homes and Gardens or Real Simple, but it fits our family and looks so much better!
