Organizing the Kitchen Pantry is Not as Easy as it Sounds
September 5, 2016 6:08pm CST
I have finally gotten my kitchen pantry organized, well sort of organized. I started with the bottom drawer and put in all the soups and other canned goods. That worked well. The next to the bottom shelf was the baking goods. That is when I found out I had three containers off flour, two of brown sugar and at least three containers of chocolate chips. I have more baking supplies than will fit in this drawer and it is large. I continued through the other three drawers and ended up with the top drawer being a mish-mash of items that wouldn't fit in their correct drawer, sigh!! So much for organization!! I did throw out all the outdated items, none of them was very outdated but honestly, I need the space so I just chucked them which I feel is so wasteful. I am getting the cleaning urge so I suspect that I am going to be chucking a giving away a lot more over the next few weeks. How is your first full week of September going?

@BelleStarr Well, since husband and pup will travel to Florida this week to visit his mom. I make him take Molly since he does go off on short trips with his old fraternity brothers. I clean every inch of this house without interruption and have so much fun. The closets here will be neat as can be, like yours.

That sounds good, a big job/chore done. I find what works best here is keeping all unopened cans and glass jars on shelving in our basement, and only opened stuff in the cupboards. That just leaves open cereal boxes, bags of pasta, which I store in plastic containers, and my baking and cooking additives. I have a beautiful tall pantry, and surprisingly enough, its not chuck full, but full enough that you can manoveur thru it, and that's just the open bags of pasta, rice, cereal, freezer bags and so on.
