Pantry Storage in a Small Space
I have had several people ask me where I store our "pantry" stock up items. For those of you that know me in real life, you know we live in an aparmtent. Now apartments are not known for having alot of storage space so it can be a challenge. In our apartment we have a hall closet with sliding doors. It had shelves in it when we moved in. I am assuming this would be a linen closet but well, we do not need a linen closet so that is my pantry. I also have a small chest freezer that sits between my kitchen and dining room area.
I try to keep the shelves of my pantry organized. I do have one small shelf system for holding can storage that I picked up at Costco but for me, it wasn't worth the $. I have 2 large drawers (individual drawers) on the floor that hold small or lose things such as packets of instant oatmeal, bags of dried beans etc. I also keep a box on the floor in the pantry that holds any cleaning items that I have extra of. I do not keep alot of food in my kitchen cupboards due to lack of space.
