How’s that for an attention-grabbing title? I couldn’t think of how to make organizing a pantry exciting, so I just went with the truth :)
It don’t know about you, but organization makes me pretty happy. If you knew me, you may not think so, as I’m not what you call as a “neat-freak” by any means (my husband will be the first to tell you). But since I am not the neatest person, when I put things in place that help me organize and be the neater person I would like to be with less effort, I get nerdy excited about it. So when I saw the pantry organizer that Young House Love installed, I ran to Target (for the second time that week, #typical) to buy one for my own pantry.
Our pantry is pretty small, just a small closet in our kitchen, and it was jammed with food that started organized but notsomuch anymore.
First it had to get worse before it got better.
In the process I saw we had eight types of chips/snacks open.
An entire nap time later and everything was back. And organized. And it was glorious. And we even have plenty of space left!
Here’s a breakdown on how it’s mainly organized.
Obviously we shop at Costco. (Hello two gallons each of popcorn kernels and pretzels and 1,000 feet of aluminum foil).
The photos don’t do the organization justice. Just know that every time I open the pantry door angels sing. Ok, it’s not that drastic, that jaw-dropping amazing, but I’m happy. Sometimes it’s the little things in life. Now to replace the wire shelves with wood…
