Other People's Pantries #31

From Laura, in Oakland, California:

My pantry has evolved over the eight years I have lived here. I put the most frequently used items on the low shelves since I am not very tall. I buy small quantities of spices, dried herbs, dried beans, etc. in bulk and store them in recycled jars with post-it labels on the outside. I try to keep the dried herbs and spices in alpha order.


I store my colorful linens and some of my copper pieces above the pantry items because I like looking at them every time I open the cupboard.


On Saturdays, we peek into Other People's Pantries.

Come on -- show us your pantry.

Here's how.

Perfect that a pantry should have beauty you enjoy.

I can see why she loves to look at her copper pots, etc. Very nice pantry! We just moved into our house less than a year ago and I have been looking at all the pantries trying to decide the best way to organize mine.

Thanks for posting these each Saturday!

Nice pantry. I just did a big remake on my, which are surprisingly still organized three weeks later. A miracle.

Very nice! and NEAT! ;-)


wow, can she come to my house and fix up my pantry? I love how neat and organized she is - reminds me a good deal of my dear friend and food mentor Pat. Pat would also buy things in bulk and is meticulous about labeling her jars.

This Saturday feature of yours makes me feel like a voyeur. I love seeing your newest post come up, I run right over to see the beauty of the pantry!

If only my pantry were so neat!

What a lovely pantry, I wish mine looked so tidy and organised.

Just ONCE, I would like to see someone's haphazard pantry. You know the organized pantry is the exception, not the rule. Don't you think we could glean something from the disorganization? The unsecured, open bags of split peas and cornmeal?

Haha... Nah! Far better to drool over the well-manicured ones. :)
