An Organized Pantry

The pantry in my new house is HUGE! Look at all that space!

I’m determined to have an organized pantry in my new house. I don’t want it to turn into this:
My Current Pantry
(excuse the photos…I took them this morning before the sun came up)
The horror!
I have an excuse (maybe not a good one). This is the only storage space in my apartment besides my bedroom closet, so everything just gets thrown in here.
I recycle all my plastic grocery bags…that’s the plastic mess on the floor. I need to buy/make something to hold them besides a Cheesecake Factory bag from 2 years ago.

Yes, I keep the boxes that all my appliances come in…in case I need to return them. It’s a good idea, but I need to clean them out more than every couple of years. The Bluray player and Wii are presents from Christmas 2009.
I swear I’m going to be organized this time!

This is how I’d like my pantry to look:
It’s beautiful! Visit House of Smiths for more pictures and deets!
My plan:
Sunday I bought 12 of these chalkboard labels from Groopdealz. 4 labels for $4, I bought 3 sets.
Now I need jars. And storage bins, so my chips and snacks don’t end up looking like this again:

I think most of my problems will be solved by having all that extra space. I’ll be able to spread everything out and actually be able to see what I have. I don’t even want to know how many duplicates I’ve got hiding in there. At least if there’s a disaster I’ll be all stocked up…

I’m promising an organized pantry this time! I’m hoping y’all will hold me to that promise!
