For the Love of Cans

This is the current state of my pantry, and it is driving me crazy. I love my orchard baskets and the few jars and containers I do have, but I for-sure need more to be able to get this mess under control. A ton of my recipes us canned vegetables and or soups, and I love how easy that makes cooking for me, but there is nothing that I enjoy about sifting through can after can to find what I need.

Why can't my pantry look like this?

Well I will tell you why. I am Mormon! Mormons have way more food in their pantries then that. Heck, they have way more food under their beds than that. So I am going to need to organize my pantry to look somewhere in-between this picture and how it currently looks.

So I am now on the hunt for that perfect pantry system, which could prove hard since I have really shallow shelves, but I will not give-up until every last inch of this pantry is organized. For the love of cans I will succeed.


  1. Hello,

    Thanks for your comment on my grass terrarium. Do you have a Costco near by? Maybe you could use their milk boxes. Check out my post on milk boxes. I use them for EVERYTHING.
    Good luck!

  2. Where did you get the seeds for the grass?
