Home Tour Part 7-The Pantry

Is the pantry considered a room?  Maybe not, but I’m always a fan of seeing pantry organization on Pinterest, or on my favorite organization blogs, so I thought I’d include it on my home tour.  If you missed the beginning of the “Home Tour” last month, you can see it here: Our Home Tour

So I must start off by saying that this is a “before” photo of what our pantry WILL be… I have so many plans for this pantry, and it involves bins and baskets GALORE!

I get so tired of seeing snacks scattered everywhere in boxes, so when I am putting groceries up, I’ll just empty them out in to the jars, and throw all of those boxes in the TRASH (or recycle bin)!  Yes… what a great feeling. 🙂

Buy 1-gallon glass jars here!

You know that white film that flour/baking soda/sugar leaves all over your shelves if you leave them in the store-bought bags?  Ugh… it almost never fails that one of those bags will bust a little seem and you all of a sudden have a huge mess to clean up.  Solution: remove the goods from the bag{s} and put them in clear jars.  Make sure you put labels on them so you don’t get the flour mixed up with the baking soda!

Ok yeah… I’m totally guilty at falling for the “convenience” packages of fruits and veggies at the grocery store.  With a toddler, they’re just the right size, and we can just “grab & go” if I need to pack a lunch for an outing.  They’re stacked pretty at the moment, but I plan to get a container for those little guys very soon!

Oh my gosh.  Does your toddler love these little snack pouches?  Mine sure does, and when I go to the store, I stock UP!  So once again… they come in either annoying boxes, or they come lose, and I corral them in a bin.  (Tip: I keep them on a low shelf so if I’m tied up with feeding the baby or changing a diaper, and my toddler tells me he’s hungry… he can go grab one himself.)

Ok ok… no… the cans are not a finished product.  I’m still working on thinking of a plan for the canned goods.  Any ideas?

Yep, same goes for all of my extra condiments.  I always keep one of each in the refrigerator, and a spare in the pantry.  (I hate running out of a condiment, so always having an extra makes life a little sweeter.)

Oh baby I love these metal baskets.  I wish I would have bought about 15 of them when I saw them at Home Goods a while back.  They can be used for storing just about anything.  This one… my bread supply!

Baking supplies: marshmallows, baking chocolate, chocolate chips… anything that fits the baking category that’s typically in bags/packages.

I have a major flaw.  Every time I go to the grocery store, I think to myself, “Do I have that shape of pasta?  Probably not… better get some.”  Then I get home and I already have about 3 boxes of each pasta shape.  Do you ever do this?! Please tell me I’m not alone.  So never fear… I’ll always have pasta near.

I adore the cereal containers.  I don’t even remember where I picked these up at, but I wish I would have purchased a few more.  I ALWAYS have more than 3 kinds of cereal.  What was I thinking?

There it is!  There’s my pantry organization.  It’s pretty… but about to get prettier.  I cannot WAIT to get it “too pretty” to mess up.

    First of all….I love your blog! I appreciate your tips and tricks and life hacks! Secondly what about putting your canned goods in a soda dispenser that usually goes in the frig? Or maybe put them on an oversized lazy susan? Thanks for sharing! Take care!

      Well Amy, you are too sweet. Thank you! I’m loving the term “life hacks” by the way! 😉
      That’s an excellent idea for the canned goods! I knew someone would come up with a great idea! Thanks for following, it means a lot! XOXO!

    Love your place altogether! I have no panty suggestions…..cause it is my daily struggle!

      It’s so tough! When you think about it, the pantry is the thing in the home that changes so often. Food goes in/out, on a steady basis, which leaves a lot of room for disorganization! Thank you so much for coming by!

    Hello, I am new to your blog. I think you have pretty hair with no frizz, what products do you use? I also have long hair.

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi Kilynn! Thank you! I LOVE using R+Co Blow out balm here: http://rstyle.me/n/b9cmrzbne5f, and the CHI Pliable Polish here: http://rstyle.me/n/b9cmtnbne5f . Those two combined really help tame the frizz!! I use other hair products too, if you ever need help with that too! 🙂 Thanks for coming by!!
