Do you love a well organized space to work in the kitchen? Life is often hectic enough and the last thing I need to face when cooking a meal is searching through all the cabinets and bags looking for what I need. I recently shared our new kitchen pantry here and thought I would answer some of the most common questions I get about this space.
The best part of our pantry is all the jars. I purchased my jars and then began placing all our dry ingredients in each one and then labeled the jars. I purchase most of our dry goods from a local health food store and I just purchase the amount that I need to fill my jars. This cuts down on the amount of boxes and bags that I have to find a place to store and this also means that we have fresh dry ingredients. So check around to see if you have a local store that sells from bulk that allows you to purchase only the amount that you need. If your local to Springfield, MO then I highly recommend Mama Jeans. They carry everything!
My jars have seals and that helps to keep all the ingredients fresh. It can seem like a pricy investment to purchase them at once but if you slowly collect them over time then your investing in an item that not only functions well but looks beautiful. I love going into the kitchen to cook and knowing that everything I need is easily available to reach and I won't spend time digging through the pantry looking for what I need.
There are still several things that I would love to add to our pantry shelves. One of them being wire baskets. I always have sweet potatoes or onions that could easily be stored in baskets and be within easy reach. This also means having cleared off counters and I love a clean space to work in. As for the labels I purchased them from Hobby Lobby in the scrapbook section. They are plain brown labels that I hand wrote the dry good product on. Etsy is also a great place to look if you want some that are premade.
So I have decided to link up some products that help in organizing a beautiful pantry. If you purchase through these links I do make a small commission. Happy Shopping!
