Pantry Gets a New Look

I promised I would share my Pantry organization mission with you, so here is the before picture again in case you forgot how horrible it was.

Big sigh here! I come down stairs now and get excited to open my pantry.  Silly I know, but it is the small things in life ladies!

I even have room to spare.  I decided to go with a basket system.  Each basket has a specific need.

Smaller Baskets:
1. Pasta items
2. All box items i.e. mac n cheese, rice mixes ect.
3. Every day items. Our oats, nuts, raisins, coffee
4. Snacks. Chips, bars, Graham crackers ect. If the basket is full we can't buy any extra snacks. This will be good for our waist line.

Big Baskets:
1. Paper products. Foil, parchment, napkins, plastic cups, paper plates and straws
2. Tupperware
3. Baking supplies and ingredients

Now everything has a home and I am happy!!

Be Well,


  1. Looks GREAT! I love the clear containers :) I have some of those at home and they make everything looks crisp and clean. This is inspiring me to clean our pantry!

  2. I am super impressed! LOVE love love what you've done with the baskets and clear jars up top. Beautiful.

  3. Wow, Heather!! I bet you just love to open your pantry now. Love the baskets you chose. You are lucky duck to have a pantry -- especially one that is so pretty.


  4. So true! It is the small, everyday things that brighten our days. Your pantry looks great and I'm sure you are enjoying it.

    Thanks for joining the party!

  5. Looks great, and it inspires me to figure out a basket solution for my lazy susan cabinet, where everything falls off and ends up in the back of the cabinet out of reach!

  6. Wow! looks great. What a great idea. I may have to do that!

  7. Love it! Looks so great! Now I need to work on my own!

  8. This is wonderful and it looks great! I love the basket idea and that there is room to grow ..an amazing feeling when everything is organized and everyone knows where to find what they are looking for.
