Is that awful or what? I was just tossing things in there, cramming them onto the shelves.
After dinner my girl and I set to work. It didn't take very long to get it straightened up. We started by clearing one shelf and putting like things together on it. The work was pleasant and the results were good.
I tried to take the picture so the ramen wasn't so prominent, but there it is.
It is not perfect, but it's a lot better; I can find things now. I still have a problem, though. The shelves are pretty full but I still have some things I'd like to stock up on before bad weather comes. More canned vegetables (I don't use a lot of canned veggies but I do like to keep a few things around), more dried and canned beans, and more oatmeal. (I also keep large buckets of flour but they just stand on the floor.) I'll have to keep tweaking it and maybe not buy so much ramen all at once next time. It'll be a while before we need to buy more.
I also noticed that I am out of onions but have no space for them! Better get those kids eating up that ramen!
It is hard for me to keep the food cupboard organized. It seems that every time I get them just right, with like items together, I buy something new that doesn't fit in its space and it throws everything off. How do you keep your pantry organized?
