Okay this is not a breath taking reveal. This is most likely not a Pinterest worthy pantry, like my prior post Pantry Inspiration. But this is a very family friendly, frequently used through out the day pantry that I thought most of you can relate to. I’ll show you how I contain and group the items in my pantry.
*The lowest shelf contains all the individually packaged snacks for lunches, and it also holds the drinks.
*The next one holds all the bagged or boxed snacks, nuts, raisins, etc.
*Above that are the sauces and boxed or bagged mixes.
*Above that hidden behind the Pellegrino are the canned items.
*On the top shelf are framed produce and fruit labels we’ve had since our first year of marriage.
*On the ground extra supplies in case of emergency.
*Lowest shelf, more lunch individually packaged items such as chips, and juice boxes.
*Above that vitamins and supplements.
*Above that cereals, and pancake mix.
*Above that more cereal, I separated into penny jars the oatmeal packets by flavor.
*Lowest shelf drink mixes, such as hot cocoa, tea, lemonade, etc.
*Above that baking supplies.
*Above that cooking oils and a S’more section (we make those fairly often-does that mean I have a problem?!?!?)
*All the baskets were purchased at Michaels on sale. It took going to 5 Michaels to find all the right sizes. Anyone else go on scavenger hunts to find just the right items for their home?
And I wanted to show you our Kitchen Command Center on the back of the pantry door….
It is in it’s “natural state” so you can see how it’s working. I absolutely love it because all of those items were usually on the kitchen table or counter top. So it’s definitely doing it’s job and corralling the paper clutter that accompanies a busy family.
There you have it our real life, hard working pantry!
