I asked which area of my house you wanted to see the most and the majority wanted to see my pantry area. Truth is that I actually have a few different areas that I consider my food pantries. It tends to happen when you buy bulk foods and have small closets!
The picture above is my canned goods storage. It’s a very tiny closet that I have no idea what the previous owners used for but we added in shelves and it makes a great canned foods pantry! I can fit the jars 2 deep on the shelves.
Can you tell I didn’t clean up the pantry before I took the pictures? I figured you didn’t want to see some stuffy old fancy pantry and would rather it be in it’s natural state! Top shelf is some flour that I’m trying to use up and my storage of canning rims and lids. I also have a couple homemade mixes and some brand new freezer containers that are ready for summer produce. I recently moved my new gallon glass jars up there too until I find something to fill them with! Next shelf is my homemade mixes and some bulk baking goods. (Real Salt, cocoa powder, ect.) The third shelf is where I’m currently keeping my canned goods that I plan to donate for Stamp Out Hunger Day.
Other side of the pantry…. I have a few natural cereals on the top shelf. The next shelf is organic snacks that I pick up from Amazon and with coupons. It’s my hubby “grab and go” shelf. The 3rd shelf has sauces and some natural “soup and noodle” meals that my hubby also grabs for a quick lunch if we don’t have leftovers!
And last but not least, my bulk storage. Not much to look at but this is a very handy part of my storage! In these bins I keep beans, wheat berries, flour, raw sugar, rice, and more.
