I’m always looking for opportunities to make storage and organizing easier. Take a look at my tiny kitchen pantry for example. It is my pride and joy because no matter what’s going on in this household, it seems to stays organized. If I had to pick one thing to improve, it’s the heavy crate sitting on the floor.  It’s great for storage holding various types and sizes of drinks, but the down side is that it can be quite heavy to move when I need to clean.  Continue reading

Updating Pantry Storage

Updating pantry storage is all about using available space. The inside of the pantry door has lots of potential as well as the small area below the spice racks. My solution was adding a storage rack to the door and two small wire racks on the wall.
