From Amanda, in Ohio:
Our pantry was originally a coat closet where one was not needed. The previous owners had a makeshift pantry with wire shelving, which I hated. So my mother-in-law and I went to town!
Here is an extension of my pantry in the basement. It's my long-term storage. I've got almost anything from Amaranth to freeze-dried zucchini. It's really mostly grains and other things we don't go through quickly.
And to keep track of what's down here and where I put it (because as it comes I put it where it fits), I have an inventory. Gotta love Excel.
Thanks so much for letting me participate!
On Saturdays, for more than two years, we've been peeking into Other People's Pantries all around the world.

And, please put your camera to work on Market to Pantry, alternating on Saturdays with Other People's Pantries. There are five more markets to share.
Come on -- show us your favorite supermarket, farmer's market, ethnic market, big box store or roadside stand. We'd love to see where you shop for food! Here's how.
