Kitchen Organization With Pantry Storage Jars

Log Home Kitchen with White Cabinet & Black Concrete Countertops  | creativecaincabin.comYikes! I’m going in….to the pantry that is. I’ve never been able to figure out how a panty can get so unorganized and out of control so quickly, especially when I’m the only one who does the cooking. As you can see by the photo my easy fix for covering it all up is to put a cute curtain on the pantry door. Ah!! out of sight out of mind.  I don’t know why but this is one space in our house I couldn’t live without but it’s also the spot I hate to clean the most. 

Vinyl Lettered Pantry Storage Containers | CreativeCainCabin.comNo sense in complaining I may as well get on with the task. Welllllll I got a little sidetracked and decided to make my baking supply containers (1/2 gallon mason jars with white plastic storage caps) look attractive by lettering them with vinyl. I do say I love the look but after I got all my craftiness out of the way I decided to leave the pantry for another day. I’m going to dinner with a friend so maybe tonight after I get home, or maybe I’ll just let that curtain stay in place a while longer. 

Tip: If you decided to do this to your containers make sure you find the middle of your jar, place the center letter there, and letter out from that spot so the word is centered on the jar.

I purchase all my baking products in bulk, and by bulk I mean 50 pounds of flour at a time, so what I do is put the staples in 5 gallon food grade buckets and fill my pantry containers when they get low. I’m actually off to Shipshewana’s bulk food store this week with Grama Red and Aunt Sherri to stock up on supplies. I normally do this twice a year.

    1. Linda I love Shipshewana and we did get stocked up yesterday. They have all organic grass fed meat and cheeses too so I purchased many of those items.

          2. Rita, So glad you like the blog:) That’s about how often I hit Shipshee too. I love that organic store, it feels like an old time butcher when you walk in and it’s spotless, so I’m not afraid to try their samples.

  2. i don’t know why cleaning the pantry and the refrigerator are such dreaded chores for me. I find myself bringing more of the frequently used items out, especially to make it easier for the kids . have a great weekend stocking up!

    I feel your pain Dawn. As much as I try to keep my pantry organized and clutter free, it seems almost impossible. Our stockpile is quite large as we have 7 kids and 2 adults to feed. We also buy in bulk and my husband has installed lots of shelving . I look forward to your makeover for inspiration.

    1. Cheryl, I have a whole warehouse of food in our basement too, we live so far from everything that I can’t get caught off guard without supplies, especially when we get snowed in.

    Love the look of the containers. I have to ask, did you make your vinyl letters or buy. If bought, from where? I don’t have a cricket or anything…

  11. Madeleine says:

    Hello. Looks lovely. Where did you get the letters? 🙂

  12. 3 hour drive to Shipshewana for me. Used to take local bus trips there so I didn’t have to drive! Love that place! There’s a bakery a little west of town to die for! After walking all the flea market and a lot of the shops I appreciated that bus ride home! Also I have cousins around Hillsdale and Coldwater. Last time I was in Coldwater I noticed soooo many antique shops (one of my loves!) and no time to stop at any of them ?

  13. I would love to see your kitchen since you do all of these. you must have a kitchen of chefs dream.

    1. Ana when we built the house the kitchen was a place I wanted to be just perfect (for me) I knew it would be our last home and I’d have to live with the kitchen for a long time.

  14. I love Shipshe! Don’t get there often. I’m on the Ohio-PA border.

    Love your kitchen!

    1. Jeannie, I try and get to Shipsee twice a year, no matter what season it is it’s always decorated so pretty and I love all the shops.
