I’m excited to share my kitchen pantry today because honestly for one, I don’t have a HUGE pantry you see in most houses and I knew that going in. But just because I do not have a walk-in the pantry does not mean I couldn’t organize it the way I want to. When we picked this model for our home I knew the pantry wouldn’t be too big. Is that good or bad? Honestly, not sure. ha! The reason why I say that is I’m not the type of person who NEEDS to have a packed pantry for the “just in case”. I’ve learned to shop for only the items I need. Including Indian spices and lentils. I’m also not the type of person who COOKS up a storm like every day. I like to keep meals simple and easy to make. And that shows in my pantry. So if you’re like me don’t feel bad. I think sometimes when you see so much food on social media or big pantries you feel the need to cook up a storm or have the same. I’m here to tell you, you don’t.
I also want to mention organizing can get overwhelming so don’t think you need to do ALL of it all at once. To be quite honest it took me almost a year to finally organize it properly. Sure, I had containers etc but I still was testing out what I use and what I don’t and how I wanted to organize the space. We all know organizing can get expensive but again doesn’t have to be. You can buy as you go and see what you like and return what you don’t. But over time you will see how much more you save by just knowing everything you have is being used. Organizing is a long term thing so TAKE YOUR TIME!
