I purchased containers, printed labels and got to work.
I started by taking out EVERYTHING out of the pantry. Confession: we ate on the floor for one night because this was taking up our dining table.
Once I had everything in sight, I was able to throw stuff out, combine duplicates and pour things into these cute little jars.
Believe it or not, I ordered a case (of 24) of these sweet little jars from the Dollar Tree! They are glass and hold about 2 cups. They are perfect for baking ingredients like baking soda, baking powder, salt, cocoa and lots more! You can find the containers here.
The labels can be printed here. I printed them on sticker paper and cut them out.
I tried to keep things together.
|Rice & beans, canned goods, etc.|
|I put condiments on little lazy susans, purchased at Target.|
|Baking ingredients all together|
Glass jars were purchased from Target. You can find them here.
All the canned goods are nicely stacked on this adjustable shelf, found at The Container Store.
I put all the teas and beverages in the corner and in a basket. Pastas and sauces/tomatoes all together too.
Snacky things all on one shelf. Towels and pot holders in a basket.

Ahhh, much better. The spices will be next. For now, they are hanging out on the top shelf and in a box on the floor. But they will have a new home very soon.
