Finished Pantry!!! Well, almost....

Worked on the pantry this morning putting everything back in and this is what I have so far.


This is a shoe rack organizier . Got from my friend Linda for free. Im using it until I can get one of those fancy dancy costco can organiziers :)






I went through and purged about 1/2 my cookbooks I never use. I got the magazine holder that is holding food mazagines that I use all the time from Target in their clearance section. It was all scratched up so I painted it. Im going to need one more of these for some more magazines that I need to go through and see if I want to keep. That metal box is a Martha Stewart recipe box from my mom :)



Since Im using what I have I decided to go ahead and paint some cardboard boxes and label them. Im on the look out for some good deals on basket or bins to replace them. Im also still looking for some plastic or glass containers to replace all the plastic you see in this picture. Then all the brown sugar, cereal etc will all have matching organized containers :) Cant wait.




The basket on top is holding pasta and the basket on the bottom is holding all those side dishes packets that are really slippery and slide all over the place.









I cant believe how much duplicate spices I had. Because I was so unorganized I just kept buying them. grrrrr I tossed out the bad and consolidated all the new :)



Edit: I forgot to add this picture. I hung my aprons on a removable hook for easy access :)





I have one of those motion detector lights in the pantry. Its really nice. Saves electricity. You should have seen me painting. I would paint alittle and have to wave my arms to get it to come back on. Then I realized it has a perm. on button, off button and auto button. DUH! At least my arms got a work out LOL :)

Thanks for stopping by with a comment at Paint-n-thread. I love the shoe organizer/shelf. Good idea and I adore your pantry. I really miss my large pantry from our old house :( Your cookbook purging reminded me of another organization idea I use in my kitchen. Keep up the good job!

Wow - great job! I just started couponing a couple of months ago and I really need to re-think my storage in the kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration! Thanks also for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment!

To funny about your light. I had a motion light on my back patio and was doing something in the back at night and kept having to stop to jump up and down. (it was not very sensitive to movement) Love your pantry, I envy your space. All my stuff is in my laundry room :(. Maybe in my new house.

If you're going to grad school to be a computer programmer, you're going to get out and get a job as a computer programmer. If you're going to grad school in the humanities, you're more likely going to end up as "a telephone operator" or an adjunct (which pays less), or maybe you'll just be unemployed. It maynot seemUK Escortsswinger novellerlike it's about the money when you start out, because you're passionate about your subject and delusional about your future prospects, but it damn sure is about the money when you get to the end and can't find work after all those years you slaved away pursuing the "life of the mind."
