This is the second in the series of three on a pantry. By the way—pantry doesn’t mean only food is stored here. A pantry can be used as overflow for things that are used in the kitchen but there isn’t room in the cupboards.
This very long room was cluttered to the point that it was barely useable. It was easy to get rid of clutter and organize once we had a goal in mind. As you know that is the second thing to do when organizing—establish some goals.
There were canning supplies everywhere and we enlisted her husband to put all canning supplies in short term storage which was on the very top shelf. Since these items are only used once a year the top shelf is the ideal storage space.
Getting rid of clutter also meant putting things in other places in their home that didn’t belong here. Boxes of good things went to a thrift store as they hadn’t used them in years or they had duplicates and didn’t need them.
Getting rid of clutter became easier and easier as progress was made and the energy shifted in the room. The energy at first was stifled and low. As we shifted things around and put likes together the energy was lighter and happier.
Space was made for items used on a regular basis and the shelves will be labeled so when something is used up the space will be “saved” for new things that belong there.
How big is your pantry? Do you need to get rid of clutter in yours? How long has it been since you revisited this space after it was organized—or has it never been organized like you like it?
