I Have Grocery Aisles in My Pantry

A month or so ago I decided it was time to organize and clean up my pantry. I am happy that I have such a huge pantry and figured I might as well take good care of it.

It is annoying though because not everyone in the family returns things to the proper "aisle". The first time I opened the pantry after my organization party the bread was in the breakfast food section which was to the right and down 2 shelves from where it should have been. So I ask everyone, "Who put the bread in the breakfast food aisle", they all started laughing at me. Still to this day I get asked where something is and I tell them the _______ aisle. I mean come on I figured it would be easy to find things based on which "aisles" they are located in at the grocery store, but apparently since I do all the shopping everyone is having to learn these "aisles"!

BEFORE:


AFTER:


The "aisles" I designated are:
(Left Side)
Breads
Boxed Sides/Meals
Justin's formula and baby food
Foils, Wraps, Bags, Etc.
(Right Side)
Snacks/Drinks
Canned Goods
Breakfast
Baking Supplies
Medicines, Etc.

It really does make you feel good to have your pantry organized, so if your pantry is a mess, get to work and feel good!

I have been hunting baskets to try and fix/organize my pantry. I didn't make it to the Dollar General last night so I am going to stp over there this afternoon and check it out for baskets. Once I get some more I plan on doing my pantry then...now then that will be the chore of keeping it the way I want it to look with hubby and Lexi.

Yours looks great!

OUR OTHER HOUSE THAT WE'VE JUST MOVED FROM HAD A PANTRY VERY SIMILAR TO YOURS. I PURPOSELY HAD NO CUPBOARDS, ONLY THE OPEN PANTRY SHELVING TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR THE PEEPS TO HELP ON GROCERY DAY, AND IT FORCED ME TO KEEP IT CLEAN AND ORGANIZED. I ALSO HAD NO PROBLEM MAKING A GROCERY LIST EACH WEEK. EVERYTHING WAS IN CLEAR VIEW. MUCH EASIER TO KEEP CLEAN TOO. IT REALLY, REALLY,MADE MY LIFE EASIER.
