Last weekend I spent time organizing our kitchen pantry. It was way overdue and needed some serious help! See?!
I started out by collecting rectangular baskets from Goodwill along with glass containers and air tight jars. I didn’t pay more than $1-2 per piece. This is my most important money saving tip! Canisters and containers can be very pricey. I found some pretty contact paper from TJ Maxx and a roll of chalkboard adhesive vinyl ($5 w/coupon) from Hobby Lobby. I cut my own labels.
These supplies along with canisters I already had helped me achieve some great results!
I also invested in some lazy susans from Bed Bath & Beyond. Using coupons I think I paid around $20 for both. (I stalked my GW for some with no luck, I’m sure the’ll be there next time now that I bought new ones though!) Ha.
All my kid snacks are together in baskets.
The bottom shelves have all the paper plates, silverware, & cups together and a basket neatly holds all my reusable bags. It’s amazing how much space you can save by taking food out of the boxes…
I used some left over contact paper and chalkboard vinyl to line the inside of the door and create a cute message center. If you look close you can see where we’ve measured the kids in pencil 🙂 I couldn’t erase that!
I think that paper might be a little busy but oh well if I get sick of it it’s easy to change. 🙂 Plus we are renting so painting isn’t an option. I see all these great painted pantries and love that look.
Thanks for visiting my pantry! So what do you think? Can we keep it this way? My husband is impressed but still asks when we are doing our closet…ugh..Just doesn’t sound as fun!
