The Ultimate Pantry!

I am not the best when it comes to organization….ok, I don’t know what the word means!

My dear high school buddy Cheri came over last Sunday and we went to town on my pantry. And of course, I forgot to take before photos….ok, I didn’t because it was beyond messy!

But I want to show you the results…we went and picked up clear plastic bins, with hope that I could keep it better organized if things were in smaller areas... like bins….TA-DAH!!!!!!IMG_1860

I am messy and Cheri is a clean freak, so we compliment each other well….look at the exact spacing here folks…..LOL

These are front and center!!!!! Love how they look…..

See the bins????? I even have my Holiday dinnerware in them! Covered up, safe and dust free. Everything in it’s place and a place for everything.

This is the baking center side…..again, check out the spacing….

I promised Cheri that I would keep it this way and so far so good. Not only is this easier but now I know what I need and don’t need to buy….like canned corn!

This the the shelf above the pantry, and the top of the ugly bi- fold doors. Someday I am having this ripped out and a cupboard put in like Laurie’s over at Magpie Ethel’s….I already have a carpenter working on the plans…..all we need is a small thing called extra money! :) Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, I love your pantry. I wish I had the space you do but I guess I need to get over it and make the best of what I have. The containers make all the difference. Too cute!

Looks great :) I have the same problem as you but am working on getting things more organized. Much easier to find things. lol

Hi Sandy!
The uber clean pantry is FAB...I know what you mean about the challenge of keeping it that way! Your gypsy jars (as I call them) are beyond wonderful...and your banner is too TOO fabulous! Off to MagpieEthel's to see what you're up to! Hugs!

Hi Sandy! Oh you know this a post after my own heart! Neat as a pin and cute as can be! I think I need more of your jars! Elizabeth

This looks great and though I like an organized pantry, it's no where this cute. I LOVE those canisters and am so envious. Ever since my MIL has moved in we have the pantry full of meds (which I normally would not do) and childrens puzzles which are a great time passer for her.

Have a lovely evening...Tracy :)

So cute...can I borrow your friend? My pantry is much smaller and no place to store everything! Thanks for sharing!

Rose Petal Dreams said...

I love the canisters and where did you find the darling red shelf paper? Thanks for sharing. I need to get busy on mine.

Rosemary said...

I love the jars with the decals! Did you do those with old decals? I have some old decals but find they tend to tear. Any tricks to keep that from happening?
