I recently got a box full of goodies from @bobsredmill
& when I opened the box I realized I had nowhere to put anything. My pantry was like the upside down - a deep, dark & mysterious parallel dimension that was downright terrifying. Every time I’d open the doors I’d fear losing a toe to a tumbling can of beans or my life to a bloodthirsty Demogorgon.
I couldn’t live in fear any longer & finally took things into my own hands. I have a deep pantry, which is honestly just the worst. I scoured @pinterest
for inspiration but mostly came across aspirational walk-in pantries lined with wicker baskets, gleaming bottles of San Pellegrino & a built in desk space to scroll out your grocery list in fancy calligraphy while doing pilates. I don’t have that kind of space, or time.
This pantry re-org is full-on function over form. I cleared everything out & opted to sacrifice a cupboard full of tiny dessert plates & props in favor of a baking cupboard that contains my flours, sugars & mixins for all of my baked goods. It might have been the best decision I ever made & it cleared up room for an ultra organized/highly functional pantry filled with inexpensive mason jars of all sizes, clearly & cleverly storing everything from dried pasta & grains to granola. I bought 2 chrome pull out drawers on @amazon
to store cans, small jars & snacks. And the rest is kept in @ikea
bins in an orderly-ish fashion. The bottom shelf holds my back stock of baking items & all of the Topo Chicos I can fit. The upper cabinet is my overfilled liquor cabinet & storage for paper plates & party stuff (you’ve always got to be ready to throw a cocktail party, people).
While it may not be glamorous, it’s highly functional & now everybody has a special little place to call home. A huge thanks to my friends at @bobsredmill
for inspiring me to finally tackle project. Guess what, Bob’s is running a photo contest & you could win a $500 gift card to your favorite store & a shipment of your favorite Bob's Red Mill products! Click the link in my bio for deets & be sure to tag your pantry shots with #bobspantry
