This is one of those projects that has been evolving over time.
A few years ago, we did a Pantry Makeover at Two Price Points $0 and $22 and the system had worked pretty well. But this summer things started getting out of control.
I even did the scary infomercial black and white photo to show you just how bad it was (also in color which is even more scary to me).
These square shaped containers also got the ball rolling. I found a set of them at Costco (they are the OXO Good Grips Pop Top line) and ended up buying two more sets by the time I was done with the makeover. You can find them at other stores too but they can get pricey that way. The cheapest ones I found were at TJ Maxx but they don't carry all of the sizes. The sets from Costco were a really good deal (8 pieces for $39).
For the rest of the pantry, I repurposed bins that we already had. The larger white bin holds opened snacks and it's now easy to pull it out to see what's in there.
I found this shelf liner at the Dollar Store but I also found a larger roll at Walmart. Eventually I'd like to paint the back of the pantry a fun color too.
I tried to organize so the shelves at eye level hold our most used items. I love the lazy susan for open items that don't fit in bins like nut butters and agave syrup.
On the floor we've got some lidded metal bins that I was using before (from Ikea). They hold items that don't get used as frequently like cookie cutters and sushi making tools. I got the lined baskets from our hall tree in the den #shopthehouse and they are working out nicely for the potatoes and onions. The blue bin was one of the girl's and was headed for donation. It holds silicone baking cups and a few other baking/decorating items that we tend to use on a regular basis. That way we can just grab the bin for a quick baking job instead of digging through one of the metal bins.
Let's keep in touch!
