Pantry Organization Overhaul

 

 

Like most dietitians, I am extremely type A.  Everything has a place and that’s where it should be.  So when I visit Brent on the weekends, his messy pantry always drives me nuts.  Well not anymore!!  I had a blast organizing using a mixture of glass jars from Michael’s & estate sales.  I was able to purchase the containers from Michael’s during a sale & combining with my ‘20% off entire purchase’ coupon. I am in love with the finished product and the chalk labels (also found at Michael’s).

I like the mixture of red, silver, and teal.  I used a basket to house some random items like bread and seasoning packets.  On the bottom shelf I am using a bowl my grandma gave me to contain the garlic and onions.

I was able to utilize space by placing wire racks in the back, which I found for a few bucks at an estate sale Smile

 

Pantry 2

 

These jars may be my favorite, I haven’t quite decided yet.  I found each one at a different estate sale.  I paid $0.50 for one and about $5 for the other two.  I was amazed to keep seeing the same shape jar at different estate sales in San Antonio and Conroe.  I bought them thinking I would use them in the bathroom for cotton balls, Q-Tips, etc. but decided they would be better suited for the pantry.

I couldn’t forget about the tea!  Brent and I love tea; his favorite is chamomile & mine is mint. I decided to make the labels pretty non-descriptive because we do like to try new flavors often.  Plus these chalk pens erase with a damp cloth, so no commitment and no smudges like regular chalk!

Hope you enjoyed this organization post & that it inspires you to get organized in your home!!
