OK, so it’s not one of the gorgeous creations that I was daydreaming about in a previous post, but it is a LOT better than it was a week ago. I am so thrilled. With a bit of sorting, scrubbing, culling, and screwing, I have gone from this:

to this:


Ok, so it still looks similar…..and the Dyson wasn’t back in it’s space at the time(next to the bucket) but it is such an improvement. Here is what I have done.

Up top, we have basics such as flour, pasta, sugar, and my assorted baking items. On the left, I have used a stackable pantry shelf from BigW to create some extra space, and allow easy access to my baking box. This has open packets of choc chips, m&ms, nuts etc that I generally use together in biscuits.

To the right I have all my Tupperware Modular Mates. The very last container to the right hold packet bread mix and bread improver.

Blow this we have sauces and vinegars:

Next shelf down is breakfast items. So cereal, spreads, and bread. I deliberately placed these on a shelf that the girls can reach, so when they get up in the morning they can help themselves to breakfast (excuse the dodgy photo):

Under this we have tinned items, pastas sauces, rice packets, crackers, and spaghetti canister (it is too tall to go up the top with the other pastas):

and down the very bottom we have the things I don’t use evry day or so. on the left are our grocery bags. I have folded them, and used a stackable shelf on it’s side to hold them neatly in their place. On the right I have Peanut oils, long life milks, and cordial at the front. Behind these I have a tall square container filled with plastic cups, paper plates, serviettes and candles etc

the inside right door has spices, curry powder, yeast, and small bottles of Asian sauces etc (you may also notice our freehand growth chart lol):

The insed left door now houses more baking goods such as food colouring, cocoa tins etc; and the central wall is sporting a new Iron holder:


I’m a happy lady 🙂



  1. This kind of organisation makes me very happy inside! I have pantry envy 1. because it’s so tidy and 2. because I don’t have a pantry!

    • It was a long time coming! I truly hope the family help keep it looking like this. This is the 3rd house in a row we have rented that didn’t have a pantry (..what’s with that?), hence the Melamine cupboard! I don’t know what I’d do without it really. How do you manage?
