Other People's Pantries #155
From Tiffany (Sew Scrappy), in Oceanside, California:
As you can see, I tend to use my pantry not only to house the large amounts of food that my family of 6 goes through, but also a catch-all for many other things (candles, paper goods, Wilton cake pans, etc).
Just out of sight on the left wall (behind the bins), I hang brooms, mops, dog leashes, and things of this nature.
My favorite thing about my pantry, other than the space, are my labeled pasta and cooking goods. For this, I used some of the many candle jars that I have burned through.
After cleaning and sanitizing them, I filled them and then used an old-fashioned dymo labeler to make the tags. I love how easier they are to remove when I need to do so, and ADORE the white on black look.
Finally, I keep my spices in the cabinet just to the left of the oven and in a rotating rack on the counter next to the oven, for easy access.
I’d love to hear some feedback for ways that I can make my pantry better! (I know…change that shelf liner! *shiver* I put that in 10 years ago when we moved in and have hated for the last 9-½.)
On Saturdays, for more than three years, we've been peeking into Other People's Pantries all around the world.
*There are three more pantries to share. If you'd like this feature to continue -- if you've been meaning to send your photos but haven't gotten around to it -- please send in your pantry photos. Here's how.
And, please put your camera to work on Market to Pantry, alternating on Saturdays with Other People's Pantries.
*There is one more market to share. Show us your favorite supermarket, farmers' market, ethnic market, big box store or roadside stand. We'd love to see where you shop for food. Here's how.
