Cleaning out the Pantry

My pantry has always been an organizational challenge. The left side of the pantry cabinet is really a broom closet—just a open cabinet with no shelving. Other than a magnetic strip on one side to hold small tools and some hooks on the other side to hold a few other things like extension cords and dog leashes, I’ve never attempted to do any organization of it. It held a carpet cleaner, and dog food and potatoes on the floor.

The right side of the cabinet has shelving, but since the cabinet is 11 inches wide and 20 inches deep, it was easy to lose things in the back.

Above the pantry is another cabinet with no shelving, used to store rags, dog towels, and unopened cereal and chips. You can see that this all was a mess!

With the help of a few stackable shelves and Basket Organizers from Amazon and some plastic drawers that I pulled out of our pop-up camper, I was able to make this space so much more useable.The pull-out baskets help me access cans from the back of the pantry and the shelf and basket units that I put in the open cabinet give me so much more storage space.  I wish I’d tackled this project long ago!
