Home Inspirations {3}

But I have been able to cope with it and get it organized.

Here it is:

BUILDERS FAIL: It is SO small!

I have to double layer everything.
The front layer is all in containers that are easy to move out of the way.
Things like fruit snacks, granola bars, oatmeal packets, gravy mixes, etc.
All those items get taken out of their boxes and placed in cute tins that the kiddos can reach.
I hate pulling out a large box to find one sad little packet in the bottom.
The containers make it easy to see what is running low as well.

We buy bagged cereals (cheap!) but my kids are terrible at resealing them, enter in Rubbermaid containers!
Here are the kiddo snacks.
High enough that the twins can't reach, but the older kids can help themselves.
Behind are the "refill" boxes.

I can't wait for my gourmet kitchen and large pantry....
4 months to go!

Some inspiring pantries:
Isn't this fabulous?
Narrow shelves so you see everything!
Crates for produce (will be doing that).
Labelled containers that are attractive...
Love it.
She has a tutorial on how she done it even!

I love how this pantry utilizes the "wasted" space on the walls.
My cute little tubs might need to go up like this.

Now, mine won't be in a spot I could do this in, but I LOVE all the light!

This is more like it!
Open space, narrow shelves, pullouts, and shelves all the way up!

I can't wait to do my own pantry......
