Pantry Organization #Poptober

Pin It
When we remodeled our kitchen last year I decided that when the time came to put the kitchen back together I would only unpack items that we used on a regular basis or things that I really loved.
What was left would be sold at our neighborhood yard sale or donated.

My counter tops were clear and my cabinets were neat and organized.
I loved the look of our new, clutter-free kitchen!

Well it's been one year now and the kitchen has stayed pretty neat and tidy.

The pantry is another matter!!

I want to go into fall and the holiday baking season, with an organized, well-stocked
pantry.  OXO and The Container Store gave me just the tools that I needed!
OXO Good Grips Pop Containers.

OXO Good Grips Pop Containers have flat lids that are easy for stacking and the square
and rectangular shapes make Pop containers space efficient.  The pop open lids make the
containers so easy to use, you can even open them with one hand!

I started my pantry overhaul by removing everything.  As I did this, I came to the realization that I am a canned diced tomato and pasta hoarder.  I have spaghetti, penne, quinoa penne, small shells, large shells, ditalini, rigatoni, wagon wheels, macaroni, bow ties, rotini and lasagna (no-bake and regular).
What the heck?
Well I guess if we are ever snowed in for weeks, we can survive on pasta :)
Anyway, back to my pantry organization.

I love these OXO Cereal Dispensers.  They're available in several sizes and they
keep cereal and snacks fresh, while making it easy to pour too.

I used a label maker to identify the contents of the Pop Containers and when that ran
out, I used washi tape.  I have a lot of baking supplies and ran out of Pop Containers.
I see a trip to The Container Store in my near future!!

I've already started a Pinterest wish list for more OXO goodies.
Check it out.

Follow Lynda @Me and My Pink Mixer's board The Container Store OXO Storage & Organization Wish List #Poptober on Pinterest.

The Container Store has everything you need for organizing your pantry and kitchen.
Pop Containers are available at The Container Store locations nationwide.

Well here's the after photo.
Much better don't you think.

All of my baking supplies, except my sprinkles (and that's a whole other post),
are conveniently located on one shelf.  My fifty packages of pasta are with the canned goods and spices.  Now I know exactly what is in my pantry.  It feels great to open the doors and be able to quickly grab what I need without searching all over the place.
The clear OXO Pop Containers make it easy to find what I am looking for.

Bring on the holiday baking!  I'm ready now!
