Our pantry is what was suppose to be the "laundry closet" according to the builder but we put our full size washer/dryer in the basement and decided to use it as our pantry. It's located across from the kitchen but when you open the door the contents can be seen from anywhere in the house - love those open concept house designs - there's no hiding anything!
|What lies behind this door ...|
Everything is crammed, stacked and hidden. We also keep some household supplies and Poppy's food supplies in here.
|Argh! I'm so embarrassed!|
So everything came out and got sorted, expiry dates checked and put back in some semblance of order!
I like using glass bottles to store dry goods in. You can see what is in them, how much you have and sometimes just seeing a food item can spark excitement to cook with it!
I saw this idea on a blog but can't remember which one. If I come across it again I will give credit to the ingenious blogger! If you have any other ideas for me I'd love to hear them!
Here's a close up!
Poppy is always close by. I'm not sure if this was taken before and she just can't stand looking at the mess or after and she's really tired from all the hard work and confusion!?!
Now, what's for dinner?
