Other People's Pantries #185
From Rachel, in Brisbane, Australia:
I've enjoyed looking through all the others, and the first thing I noticed is how much some other people have in their pantries! There are only two people living in my house, and in a few weeks it will be just one -- the lady I live with is getting married -- woot for her!
I shop once a fortnight, but mainly for fresh produce... my fridge is a very different story to my pantry!!
Here is my spice rack, attached to the inside of the pantry door. And yes they are in alphabetical order, can anyone say OCD?? These racks weren't in the pantry when I bought the house, but they were at the very top of the 'needed' shopping list.
On the top shelf is where we keep our huge collection of tea and the liquor... interesting combination, but the collection never seems to get any smaller.
We also keep the instruction folder for the complex we live in, because any good pantry needs the community title laws in it!
On the next shelf down we keep all of our baking supplies. The flour, sugar, rice, cocoa etc. all live here. I'm a bit of a Decor container tragic, but they keep everything so tidy and organised.
Here we see the second top shelf again, along with the third shelf. This is probably the most frequently used shelf in the whole pantry. Here we keep the tinned food, sandwich spreads, and sauces. We like to keep the space on the front right side free, not sure why it has to be that spot, but it just does.
The fourth shelf is home to the foils and wraps, along with our yoghurt making supplies, cereal, and the zip lock bag collection, that I swear seems to multiple in the dark. We also keep the coffee pods for the Nespresso machines somewhere on that shelf.
The bottom shelf of the pantry is home to the bulk supplies we buy. There's a 10kg bag of rice, a box of wine, long life milk, mineral water, tomato sauce, sugar and flour. We also keep some of our bigger appliances down there as well. I don't like keeping appliances on the bench. Those appliances will move out with the housemate.
I hope you enjoyed the look in an Australian pantry.
After four years of peeking into Other People's Pantries, it's time to close the door, with thanks to the 185 people whose wonderful photos of their pantries inspired many of us, including me, to reorganize and redecorate.
