An Organized Pantry

Over the weekend, I tackled my pantry.  It seems to be one of the most disorganized areas of my house.  Probably because, everyone is always going in there looking for something.  I bought chrome baskets for the shelves.  I keep chips, hot chocolate, pasta, crackers, mixes, ziplocs and foodwraps, etc. sorted in each.  On the top shelf I keep cans and sauces.  Because you can see through the baskets, it makes it very easy find everything and to put the groceries away.  I have not bought plastic storage containers, for cereal and rice, yet but thats next! (I think they will go on the bottom shelf)!!

Here are the BASKETS that I use in my pantry.  I also like THESE to hold canned goods.  And HERE is a great set of storage containers!!
