When someone goes to open your pantry do you think “please don’t let that can fall on their head”, or do you have to give the person a detailed explanation of where something is like “on the third shelf behind that bottle of sauce you will see the packet of sugar”? I know my husband gets frustrated with me as I know where everything was but for him I would practically have to draw him a map to find something. I myself was also unhappy with my pantry, the time I waste trying to find something and the double up buying of especially canned items made for one frustrated Mumma.

Remove all items check for use by dates etc. wipe and dry the shelves.
BOTTOM SHELF: I really love my pantry now, it feels brighter and less cluttered. The large wire baskets at the bottom are a perfect fit for my space and means no more can stacking.
|2 x Large Pantry Shelves at the very back|
I also will be adding the extra wire spice rack on the door and moving one of the original spice racks up and to the right for more continuity.
I also replaced the laminate edging on the shelves as it was discoloured and chipped. The iron on laminate was $10 for 10 metres at Bunnings and it really made the pantry look fresh.

Extra goodies I purchased:
|Large hand towels – 2 for $5|
|Collapsable Silicone Strainer – this replaced my metal strainers which took up half of my draw space. $7|
