Pantry Makeover with Wrapping Paper

Our pantry was slowing getting out of control...

and there was  the issue of so much stuff..

not to mention certain persons who wouldn't put things back where they belonged..

it was time to get things straightened up..on Friday I picked up a roll of
wrapping paper from Hobby Lobby and clear contact paper at Wal-Mart..


The top shelf is designated for can foods and my Campbell Soup tin
that holds gum and breath mints..

I wanted each shelf to not be so packed so I could enjoy the design of the wrapping paper..


My other main goal was to have the mixer in the pantry..
I don't use it everyday but I want to see it everyday..
makes sense, right?

The canisters are from QVC - Lock & Lock Flip Top canisters...
and there's a few Tupperware containers and some more lock & lock containers..
Lock & Lock has some of the best space saving, air-tight containers around..

The third shelf holds my cereal and some misc things...
hot chocolate and marshmallows are hiding in the back..

The pantry has two pull out drawers which everyone should have..
this is where I keep the oatmeal, pop tarts, granola bars...applesauce..
my pickle chips..... :)


The bottom shelf is to hold anything else that comes in a box...
I found that I already had a box of grahram crackers after I just bought some..I'm going to make some of these to stick in the freezer..
Otherwise - not too much was thrown out..mostly reorganizing and taking things out of boxes whenever possible....

I'm linking to these parties....
and

and I can't forget to thank my DH - he kind of did a lot of the measuring and taping..
