Want to know one of my greatest love-hate relationships? It's PANRTY ORGANIZATION. As we all know by now, I'm a bit of a food hoarder and believe strongly in shelf-cooking (keeping a good stock of food on-hand to keep meals homemade, and inexpensive). Keeping a good stock of food at home can be a major benefit to your wallet – B-U-T…if that food is disorganized, messy, and cluttered, it can definitely feel more like a burden than a benefit!
Two years ago when we moved into our house I finally figured out a pantry organization system that works really well for my family. It took 8 years of marriage to get there (sad, but true!) but now that we have found our system, I'm passionate about helping you find yours! Thus, for today's “Back to Productivity” challenge this month, I'm going to share exactly how I do my own pantry organization as well as loads of other ideas and tips I found to hopefully spark some organization inspiration for you! Now, I'm well aware that my pantry is GIANT – trust me, it was a huge selling point for the house we bought. But the last 2 houses we lived in had ITTY BITTY BITTY pantries that didn't offer much storage. So the tips I'm going to give today can be adapted to fit into almost any food storage/pantry space; large or small.
Let's get to it, shall we??
First, let me give you a tour of my own pantry to kick things off…
