Storage places need not to be spectacular from the outside. A little creativity of designing a jar or big can may be used and whats stored inside is your 5 pounds sugar or flour. It is a matter of economy of space and the usefulness of the receptacle. Your displayed furniture can have aesthetics purpose and dual use. For your cabinets you can share putting some ceramic wares and some extra stocks like pasta or canned goods. It is all a matter of arranging them properly so that they may not look messy or jumbled. A pantry can be so simple yet functional. What you need to do is to organize and make it fit for your familys needs.
9. For all grocery and pantry items, clip coupons from your Sunday paper inserts, grocery store fliers and use them to save money when stocking your pantry. Stock up on those items that are on sale and that you use regularly. Items to keep in your pantry: 1. Spices: Spices are really expensive, so acquire as you go and need them. Of course, salt and pepper are a must; and then buy others as your recipe calls for them. You can save money if you buy in bulk, especially those spices you use often; but the initial outlay can be a bit pricey. Keep spices near your cooking range for easy access -- a "lazy susan" turntable can work well with spices. 2. Keep items in your pantry that can be used to prepare a quick meal with short notice.
In reality, a pantry varies to the familys needs, tastes and preferences. The items stored and where they are placed are constrained based on budget and financial limitations. Households with minimum budget, especially with kids, will go for a pantry where cereals, formulas, diapers and snack foods are easily seen. The products bought are mostly not that expensive, particularly for single-income earners. Living with active lifestyle, diets stored in your pantry can be pickled asparagus, cocktail crackers and small jars of caviar for pick-up appetizers and other hostess gifts. Home bakers may have flours, gluten and different kinds of powdered ingredients in their pantries. For food stuffs that need only heating may use microwave entrees and freezer pizza. Basic personal necessities may include: toilet paper, detergents, toothpastes, bath soaps, shampoos, etc.
Getting Started - Cleaning Out The Pantry Now that you have planned your pantry for function, it is now time to get started on reorganizing! Once you have established your pantry area, youll want to start by removing everything - I know, I know - dont freak - by removing everything will be able to help you get started and in order. 1. Empty your pantry completely - moving everything into boxes, tabletops and/or counter tops. Discard or recycle anything that you find is spoiled, expired, stale or otherwise unusable. 2. Before setting about to put things in order - you are going to have fun by disassembling whatever food cupboards you currently use. Look at everything as you take it out and consider the following: How long has it been since you used that item? For example, Herbs - loose a great deal of flavor after 6 months even in a dark, cool space. While youre at it check expiration date and throw away accordingly. Remember the rule: When in doubt, Throw it out!
