The Two Secrets to Keeping My Pantry Organized

Organized Pantry Tips

My small pantry under our staircase is one of the most organized rooms in our house!

I am so excited that my pantry makeover is featured today on one of my favorite blogs, I Heart Organizing! This little pantry by our kitchen has been one of my favorite spaces in our home ever since we completed it about a year ago!

Want to know my secrets to keeping it organized? I don’t know about you but I am much more likely to keep a room or area of my home organized and cared for if 1) I redesigned the room from top to bottom myself so I really love it and 2) if it is open to another room or used regularly.

People often fear having an open pantry or open shelves because they want to be able to close the door on any potential mess. But I’ve found that when a space is open I’m more conscious about keeping it organized!

Since my pantry meets both of my requirements of being pretty and open for viewing, I can assure you it still stays organized most of the time! VICTORY!

You can read the Q & A on my pantry and see the feature over at I Heart Organizing! Thanks Jen! :-)
