Like many of you, I have some projects I have on my to do list.

One of them I was dreading was the pantry. I'm glad I have a pantry. It's not huge, but helpful to have. It's a reach in, not a walk in, but I tend to get lazy and things get really unorganized. So, this time I took everything out. I got rid of some things. I moved a few things around.

I have been looking on Pinterest for organization ideas. I really didn't want to spend any more money on baskets and such. I had purchased a couple of wire racks a number of years ago and I still use them. But, I really wanted to figure out to use what I already had.

I am going to admit I love baskets. I don't buy the expensive ones, but I buy them at thrift stores. Anyway, I thought instead of going to the Dollar store and buying plastic bins and baskets, why not use what I already had. I won't say it is photographic perfect, but my little pantry sure looks a lot better and other than some elbow grease and moving stuff around, it sure looks better.

Plus, I recycled some things I no longer use and gave them to a thrift store. So, maybe it was a win-win for the thrift store and my home. Hopefully organization will help me save money by seeing what I already have.

    I have a reach in pantry too.Not sure why they call it a pantry..i think it's called that mostly by realtors who want to make an ordinary cabinet seem like something special. But anyway, my pantry is totally disorganized too. I've had s lazy susan in mind with spices but it takes up too much room

    I've looked at tons of pictures of different pantries ... they all look so good ... but I have no idea how to incorporate them into what I actually have. I'm not lacking on storage space - just ideas on how to make it more useful. Smile

    I agree...I won't be posting photos of mine, but mine will never look like the pantry pics on Pinterest.

    Having just moved - I am at a little bit of an organizing loss. So I am not working to make it beautiful but I don't mind some pretty things in there. I have blue plastic storage bins from the dollar store. A friend recommended spray painting them silver so they look galvanized. She has done it with other items and been successful, so I might give it a shot!

    That's a good idea, Househopeful.
