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.
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. Cookbooks and kitchen appliances below.
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.
