Other People's Pantries #157

From Toni (Toni's Kitchen Diary), in Austin, Texas:

My pantry is relatively small (3.5 ft by 3.5 ft by 8.5 ft tall). I installed Elfa shelving in place of the standard fixed shelves. What I love about the Elfa is that the shelves can be moved around to customize the space.

I was inspired to reorganize my pantry after reading a "Good Housekeeping" article about Jamie Lee Curtis' organizing tips. Sadly, the online version does not have her kitchen pictures, featuring deep drawers filled with plastic containers, each labeled on the top. Her tips about making product packaging more pleasing to the eye really intrigued me; it seemed so "doable."

Armed with my trusty label maker and some clear plastic organizers, most of which I had on hand already, my daughters and I spent a couple of hours repackaging and labeling my pantry contents.

And, please put your camera to work on Market to Pantry, alternating on Saturdays with Other People's Pantries.
