OK, I’ll play

Jen at Sprite’s Keeper and Michele at It’s a Dog’s Life posted pictures of their pantries today.  Michele to prove that an organized pantry is a possibility (something I didn’t believe until I saw Michele’s pantry!).  And since I’ve been known to show the world odd photos of my house.  I seriously posted a picture of the cabinet under my sink on a message board once.  For no other reason than I was home on maternity leave and the baby was asleep and Debbie dared me to (actually if I remember correctly that day was full of picture-taking assignments…I think I posted pictures of most of my house that day!). 

Here, in all it’s glory, is my pantry:



There it is!  In all it’s disorganized glory!  Looking at these pictures I think, “Boy, we have a ton of alcohol on that top shelf!  These people are going to think either I’m an alcoholic or married to one.”  I also find myself wondering what exactly is behind those bottles.  I don’t think I’ve looked back there for years.  For all I know, there could be a colony of mice living back there in nicely constructed 3 bedroom condo.  The bins on the second to bottom shelf were part of my attempt to organize my pantry a few years ago.  I’ve since given up and have decided there is no hope for my pantry!



  1. I personally like the leaning bottle of vanilla? on the bottom. Cool!

    As a librarian I look for patterns. It’s a quirk or obsession or idiosyncrasy, whatever. We’re crazy okay! I kind of get the first two shelves and applaud you for putting your booze on the top one. Safety first! After that I’m kinda confused.

    Bravery is rewarded though. Thank you for showing us your pantry.

  2. Don’t worry, I’m confused too! I started out with the best of intentions, but you know what they say about that!

  3. I think it looks pretty orderly, compared to mine. We have shelves in our pantry that make it easier to get to stuff in the back. They have them at Lowes:
