Organized the pantry today
I saw something on either Houzz or Apartment Therapy that talked about organizing the pantry and even though I had a million other things to do today ... I just felt compelled to do this.
I tossed some stuff, like the rice noodles I bought 3 times, and never liked (though I love noodles at the Thai restaurant). And I took the old dried fruit and diced it up for when I make suet in the winter. Squirrels and woodpeckers won't care that the dried figs were out of date when it's 10 degrees outside (Fahrenheit).
I only wish I had taken a before picture! We went from 4 shelves that spanned 2/3 of the space (honest, PO lacked sense in many ways) to 4 full width shelves and 3 half width shelves. DH cut them for me from some leftover melamine shelves that were 45" wide. The pantry is 29" wide, so it worked out well.
I tried to put healthier stuff closer to eye level and the tasty unhealthy stuff (like my baking supplies) toward the bottom.
I think I've opened it at least 4 times just to marvel at how pretty is it :)
