So I feel like after 3 months we should take our relationship to the next level. Well wait now, don't leave, hang around -- I just want to show you guys my pantry. It's no gem, but I thought it'd be a bit of fun. You see, a while ago I found The Perfect Pantry who does this Saturday segment on scoping out other people's pantries. Of course, since I'm such a
nosey curious person, I fell in love right away! But it's not entirely fair for me to have all the fun, so now I'm stepping up and letting you all sneak a peek at my cozy little nook in the laundry room.
To start, my top shelf is dedicated to cereal. I'm a bit of a cereal freak...no kidding, I could eat it morning noon and night and be a happy gal - if only Hubby were so open minded. And thanks to the awesome people at General Mills and MyBlogSpark I was able to stock that shelf up! Back in January they sent me some amazing VIP coupons to try out some fabulous General Mills cereals. This was the first time ever that I tried Chex (I bought the Honey Nut kind) and oh my goodness oh my goodness - I'm hooked. But enough about my favorite meal of the day, moving on.
The second shelf usually holds various boxed staples, such as barley, tea, tortillas, syrup, etc. I say usually because...well things tend to get a bit shuffled when you ignore your household organizational duties. Eh, it happens. (see how I have to hide the chocolate in the pantry, out of sight out of mind folks).
The bottom shelf is for canned goods and small stockpiles. For example, I have enough Kraft BBQ sauce to last me until next summer - no kidding. Mayo, tomato paste, flour - nothing fancy. And on the floor I keep over flow items and my re-usable grocery bags. In the back left corner I have my stash of dishwasher tabs to assure my hands stay soap free for at least another year, ahhh the simple things!
Now next to my stove I have everything that I use on a regular basis. Bottom shelf is savory spices, salt and sugar (hey, how'd those kisses get there?!). The middle shelf I keep baking spices, chocolate chips, sprinkles, cupcakes cups...you know, all the fun stuff. And the top shelf holds the pasta maker I used once, ok maybe twice and the flour and bulk spices.
Well I hoped you enjoyed your little tour of my
mess errr, pantry. Care to share yours? (remember how nosey I am!).
