Other People's Pantries #10

From Jason (Jason Cooks), in Portland, Oregon:

To be honest I opened up my pantry and gasped, oh my god, how did it get so messy? Did a tornado come through here and do this? No, it's just that I have too much stuff and not enough shelf space in my tiny kitchen.

I have now decided that I need to install more storage somewhere in my kitchen so I can get more organized. When I clean out the pantry I usually have everything separated by grouping, all canned goods together, baking stuff together, spices together, etc…now it's all jumbled, so enjoy the look into my secret cupboard of goodies!

Now that's some honesty!

I experienced a similar, "Did a tornado do this?" syndrome in my very first (and very small) kitchen. I remember the realtor called it "galley-style," and I was too naive at the time to know she meant galley of a child's toy sailboat. But it was mine and I was thrilled to be buying my first home. There's something to be said for youthful enthusiasm.

At any rate, thanks for sharing - and those salt and pepper shakers in the middle of the bottom row - I have those! My mother bought them for me years ago, and they're still sitting on my counter today!


Looks pretty tidy to me!

Tornadoes are a daily occurrence at my house.

Tornadoes, yes they are the ones that sometimes make the contents of the cupboard try to escape =) I get them too!

Tornadoes do the same thing in big kitchens and big pantries - there is no escape!
