I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was pretty busy and got an early start on Friday. My husband, children, and I had to go back home for a couple of days to see our family. It was so nice to see everyone. We came home Saturday night, and I spent Sunday afternoon cleaning out my pantry. While I know that this is not the most gorgeous topic to blog about, it is still something that I hope you will find useful in your own kitchens. Kitchen organization is so important in running an efficient work area.
I want to first apologize for my photography. My walk in pantry is a very tight space making it difficult to take very good pictures. However, I think that you will get the general idea.
I purchased several black container baskets to catagorize my pantry items.
After sorting alike items, I labeled each basket. This makes it so much easier to find things, and it saves so much time when you are making your grocery list.
I used several small baskets for containing smaller items like tea bags, jello boxes, pudding boxes, and ribbons for packaging baked goods to give to loved ones and neighbors.
I purchased this storage rack to maximize space. It is specifically designed to hold foil, plastic wrap, wax paper, parchment paper, and freezer bag boxes.
On the top shelf of the pantry, I places a small wine rack.
The bottom shelf houses my cast iron collection. I love cooking with cast iron, but they are very heavy. Therefore, having a sturdy shelf to store them is perfect.
I placed several large baskets on the floor to hold potatoes, onions, and large boxes.
On the opposite side, Mr. Bleu placed a large piece of peg board with movable hooks to house my cutting boards, pastry mat, skillets, and aprons.
At the back of the pantry there is a recessed area that has extra shelves to store appliances that are rarely used. There is also a spot for my baking cart.
I hope that I have shared some useful tips to help you to get your kitchen and pantry organized for the upcoming Fall season. I’m so happy that you stopped by today, and I hope that you have a very blessed and happy Monday!!!
