Organizing a Kitchen Pantry

• 30 December 2009




















Forget it...I can't wait until the new year to start organizing! My messy pantry is too far gone to ignore for another few days. I'm sure most people only need to spend maybe an hour or two max, but oh no, it took me 4 hours to get my pantry in ship-shape. That being said, I can't tell you though how good it feels to have this completed. Cooking and baking will be even more fun now that I can actually access what I need!

This is what I did to organize my pantry:

* took everything out and then wiped down the walls and shelves
* threw expired food in the trash (as well as any other junk/papers/etc.)
* cleaned out bins and re-sorted contents
* assembled can racks, helper shelves, and under-the-shelf organizers before placing in pantry
* filled in the empty spaces with everything else
* rewarded myself with a box of San Pellegrino because the bottles are not only pretty all lined up, but nice to sip during a nice dinner :)

Now on to my junk drawer for the second time since returning from France. Clearly I need a new system :)
