Week 3: The Pantry
Here is the step by step process that we took to get our pantry organized!
Step 1. Empty out completely and scrub the shelves and floor. I had some syrup and honey drips so things were a little sticky, yuck! As I was taking things out I categorized them on the island so I could see how much I had of what. i.e. baking stuff, kids snacks, pasta/rice ect.
Step 2. I installed Fridge Coasters to 4 out 5 of my wire racks. This will prevent my canned goods from tipping over AND will absorb those honey and syrup drips so I won't have to scrub next time. Our wire shelves are 12" deep so I broke off the 1" perforation line on the large bin coaster for a perfect fit.
Step 3. re-load the pantry and categorize each shelf.
Instead of storing chip clips in a kitchen drawer, clip them to the rack for easy access. I started doing this a couple of weeks ago and it's just so much more convenient. Even the dog treats have a spot now.
Step 4. Utilize the inside of the pantry door. We used Command hooks to hang a family calendar and Becketts lunch box.
