Just off of our kitchen, at the top landing of the basement stairs, is our pantry. It's a tall, open shelf system with no door - though there is a door to the basement stairs, which is closed 99% of the time, so the pantry is hidden also. Based on the shape/size of it (perfect width but crazy deep), I have no idea what the space was intended for when the house was built in the 1930's, perhaps a broom closet? At some point a previous owner installed some wooden shelves & began using it as a pantry. We've done the same and haven't messed with the shelving at all, but it's been a challenge to find ways to practically store a decent amount of food in such a deep pantry, while actually being able to access all of it!
Earlier this spring, as part of SimpleMom's Project: Simplify, I decided to tackle our pantry storage problem. Here's what I came up with:
So there you have it - a tour of my newly reorganized, super deep pantry! Have you faced any challenges in organizing your pantry? Or if you don't have a pantry, how do you organize your food storage?
