My pantry was driving me crazy. I couldn’t find anything. And the day five bags of chips fell on my head was the one I said okay.
I give up.
So I wrestled all those ingredients into bins, boxes and shelves. Now, after living with the setup for about two years, here are the best parts:
- Lazy Susans for oils and vinegars. With one spin, it’s so simple to find what I need instantly.
2. Cereal bins. It’s impossible for cereal to go stale in these. PLUS, you can see whether you need to get more at the store soon.
(Quick tip: When it comes to Cheerios, I always mix plain with whatever flavor I’ve agreed to let the kids try. Less sugar, tons of flavor. Win, win.)
3. Moving my spices. Look at the rack my husband made for me! It lives on the door so all these tiny little bottles don’t have to rattle around the pantry anymore. Swoon. (But this one does the same thing! No sanding required.)
4. Bins for baking. Who doesn’t hate trying to find all the ingredients you need when you’re trying to make something simple like chocolate chip oat cups? Now I just grab the baking bin (on the right) and trust that every form of baking chocolate, salt, and all their friends are nestled safely inside. Time saver.
p.s. Mine are just low-cost dishpans. Be careful not to overload them with weight but they’ve worked like a dream all this time.
5. Glass containers for dry goods. Hello, chia seeds! Now I can see how much of everything I actually have (like the cereal), it never goes bad and also, it’s pretty.
Now instead of giving me stress, my pantry is a hard working tool.
