I thought with all my renovations that I had shared this part of my life with you all but maybe I have no?
It has taken 3 months but every time I go shopping I buy another Sistema container. Slowly but surely my pantry is filling with a “system”. Some kind of organisation, this has never been my pantry. But since 1st January when I decided to start cooking I am now using more of the things also that my pantry has never had ie flour, sugar, coconut, icing sugar.. These all need to be in something.
So with my HUGE pantry it was time to try and keep some kind of order.
On my Sistema containers I have also written on the sides of them in whiteboard marker. Especially when first putting things in containers I was swapping and changing them, too big, too small, not tall enough, not deep enough. So I found if I wrote on them in white board marker then I could very easily change the names.
This is work in progress but very slowly my pantry is getting sorted.
Myherbs are in a tray that can be lifted out. I also have written the names of them on the lids so that I dont have to lift everyone up to see if its the rigt one.
My baking things are in containers. Biscuits I use, cooking chocolate, sprinkles, colourings, all in different containers.
Infact cleaning out the pantry is aways refreshing and puts things back in order.
I have a section with the things off the bench, pens, calculator, just things with my shopping list double sided to the wall above it.
And our calendar is on a pin board that I put on the back of pantry door.
What are your tidy pantry hints or tips you could share with me?
