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.)
