The Organized Pantry

Sunday when we got home from up north I got our refrigerator cleaned out. Today I got around to cleaning out the pantry.
It feels so good to be able to look in and find the garlic in its pot front and center with out having to dig for it.
The cook books are now back in the pantry where they are easily accessable after spending the holiday season in the office to make room for the abundant supply of food we set in for entertaining from Thanksgiving to Christmas.
This is a picture of of the floor when I started. Apparently my sprouting onions had rolled behind the broiling pan out of the basket on top of my hanging produce stand. You can see them in the picture below....nice hah....
There they are! I like this basket but if the potatoes or onions get off balance they fall out and create a bad, bad smell that I have to go searching for when it gets to bad to tolerate....yuck!
All the candy and opened bags of salty junk food is out of here.

Good by messy pantry..... see you this summer when the pool season begins......


  1. It is a thing of beauty! Don't you feel better now! I always feel so accomplished when my pantry and fridge are clean and tidy;)! I gave my pantry a face lift this fall...hmmmm...I should post mine;)...and I love how cute it is. It took a little cleaning to get back in shape after the holidays but it is looking good again. Now I need to go shopping to fill it up.

    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Ummm... can you do ours?! Honestly, it looks wonderful, what a great project!
