Anyway, for Kirsten (and anyone else that might be interested), here is how the pantry is organised:
On the left hand side we put in floor to ceiling shelves. It is hard to take a photo of them without a special lens but they are big and deep. On the top shelves, which you can only access with the kitchen stool steps, I keep this sort of stuff:
I am sure you all understand why the paints et al are treated in the same manner as other dangerous good items like First Aid Kits and Chemicals.
Below the Dangerous Good items are mostly shelves full of dry goods and other miscellaneous kitchen items. The glad wrap, alfoil and plastic baggies live in an Ikea basket together.
Shelves look mostly like this (a pretty shelf):
Or like this (not so pretty shelf):
On the other side of the pantry is my favourite bit, the appliance shelf , all the appliances used regularly are stored here:
In the drawers/cupboards below are:
R's coffee supplies.
Lunchbox bits and pieces.
So there you have it, that is how the pantry is organised and please don't think it always looks this. I did a big tidy up before I took the photos! Now, someone ask me about garage or wardrobe organisation or something to motivate me to tidy up elsewhere!
