As promised, here is my personal pantry. Enjoy! (Disclaimer...I'm not a professional photographer. :-)
I used scrapbook letter stickers to label my bins.
The larger labels I ordered from etsy.com, JK Designs
The white bins are great....IKEA!
Tupperware changed kitchen in the 60's, Costco has changed kitchen in the 90's and on...
Clean containers, food quality, are a great visual.
Little bins and lazy susans are great for miscellaneous items.
I don't know about you, but I have to designate a special shelf that is for school lunch supplies only.
That is the only way I can guarantee there are treats and chips left for the next days lunches. :-)
Small bins found at Container Store are nice to hold paper goods, easy to find and reach,
something kids always need and need it quick!
I like to keep my potatoes and squash in a basket so that it's dry and airy.
I also have my flour and sugar 5 gallon buckets as back up for the smaller sugar and flour bins.
I find I get better success from my children refilling the smaller bins when they don't have to go out to the garage to do so. It takes up a lot of space, but the benefits outway.
Some of my favorite things....a holder for those store plastic bags. It also helps
monitor how many you can save. I use a magazine rack from IKEA to hold my paper bags. It keeps them
up and off the floor and easy to see what sizes I have.
So that is my pantry, which us to be an area where I had a butler service (counter and shelves below and above) and a smaller pantry on the opposite of the butler service. I saw how much wasted space
there was and I had my husband close it off and make a large pantry. It's been great! It makes for a nice phone booth too when my kids are too loud and I need to talk on the phone. He, he!
