Organize it Wednesday: Pantry before and after

 

Before I began organizing my pantry, everything was kind of shoved into every nook and cranny where it would fit.  I had to unload a whole shelf to find one item.  The depth of the shelves contributes to this disorganization dilemma, however, I can still do a better job of keeping stuff I use a lot within easy access.

I started out by pulling out almost everything and wiping down the shelves.  Then, I regrouped things, like all the canned goods, all the flours, all the breads, etc.  Stuff I use only occasionally was moved to the back of the shelves or near the top of the pantry, depending on what it was.  Things I need to use quickly or use often were put at eye level and in the front.  Admittedly, eye level for me is quite a bit lower than for most people.  But, I’m the one doing most of the cooking, so it’s my way or the highway.
 
I only found a few things that needed to be chunked, and I was able to find some things with which I can use in meals.  We are in the planning stages to move, so I need to use up as much of our surplus as I can to avoid moving it.  Call me lazy, but I beg to differ.  Our next temporary abode is likely to have less storage space than I have here, so the more we use now the less I have to find a place for in a few weeks.
 
Do you have a place you need to organize?  What is your plan of attack?
