My Favorite Part of My Kitchen

This is the door to my pantry. I've always been a spice hoor and it's quite difficult to fit this many spices in a rack or on a shelf! With about $30 worth of wire shelves, we were able to use wasted space to hold all of these spices and keep them neat and organized.


















As for the pantry--it isn't ready for its closeup, Mr. DeMille...

To see what everyone else is talking about this week, go visit The Lazy Organizer's Talk About Tuesday.

It looks great! I love use and experiment with spices too. I have two drawers full plus some.

What a wonderful idea. I'll have to keep that in mind for the next place we live in.

I use an over the door shoe organizer in my pantry and have always liked it. However, I really love how neat and clean your racks look. The shoe organizer doesn't have as smooth lines :)

That's so cool! Everytime I want to use a certain spice I have to move EVERYTHING to get to it.

I'm totally jealous.

I buy those large spices from Sam's club but them keep them in the freezer to keep them fresh since it takes so long to use them up.

I am a spice hoor too! I wish I could do that with my pantry but mine has sliding doors! Very beautiful work!

THAT is awesome. The one thing I HATE about my kitchen is that it has NO PANTRY. None. Zero. Nada. Zilch. None. I ahte that!!!
I have considered using my hall closet as a pantry but who wants to run around the corner to the front room when you need something?

Ahh.. Great minds organize alike. :) I did the same thing last August to my pantry door and even posted about it today.

Holy crap ~ that's awesome Carrie! I need to make a trip to the store. My spices are a big, disorganized mess. That's fantastic!

I need to do something like that. We have the accordion type doors but my in laws had someone do something to theirs, like brace the doors, where it now just opens like yours and they did all the shelving on there too.
