This is extremely hard to take a photo of because of the angle, but today I organized my pantry. It is in the kitchen, but it is actually in the space under the landing of the stairs so it is only 5'3" high. In the back taking up all the room is the hot water tank. We had some pototoes on the floor that I forgot about. Do you know what happens to pototoes that are forgotten? Have you smelled pototoes that rot? They had a liquid mess under the bag that was just gross so I had to pull out all the stuff on the floor and really get it all clean. So, I went on to organize all the food into neat little rows. The shelves weren't really that bad. This is not where we keep all the food. I have a LOT of kitchen cabinets. I have one of the lower cabinets under the island that has all my can green beans, corn, and carrots. I have one cabinet next to the stove that has a container with sugar, flour, rice, elbow macaroni, spaghetti noodles, grits (Kiss my grits, Honey child!),cornmeal, etc. I have a lower cabinet with nothing but cereal. I use the shelf over the coat closet near the garage door for extra stuff - right now it has goldfish, cheeze its, all the free CVS Boost drinks and glucerna drinks, and other stuff. I was using it to hide things to keep the kids greedy hands off of them, but they found me out. I have 18 unopened boxes of cereal! I have 4 cereal keepers and 4 opened boxes of cereal. Would you like to come have breakfast at my house?- I have a full assortment for you to choose from. I have 10 cake mixes, 14 Hamburger/chicken helpers, about 10 bags of rice mixes and 10 noodle mixes, I have 8 jars of spaghetti sauce, tons of soup and chili. I also have 50 lbs of flour that I am keeping in our refrigerator in the garage. I bought it when rumors began about the price of flour rising. And it is going up.
