Pantry Makeover!

Like many of us when we start a new year, we get the itch to de-clutter, and re-organize our house. So a few weeks ago, I did just that. I tackled the kitchen by re-organizing each cupboard. It not only feels so good to have it all organized, but I can’t believe how much better the kitchen functions now. 

I don’t know about your kitchen, but our pantry is the most used cupboard in our kitchen. It’s where we keep all the kids snacks, baking products, and non-perishable foods. So with this cupboard, and all the others, I pulled everything out, washed them down, and only put back what we USE! I also went to Kitchen Stuff Plus, and bought clear plastic containers, and bins to organize everything! 

 

Here is the before:

Here is the after!

It’s amazing what a difference containers, and bins can make for organization!! Crazy! Let me walk you through how I organized everything, and which containers I used. 

For all of my pasta, flour and sugar, I used the KSP Easy Lock 3.6L Acrylic Canisters with Locking Lids which fit perfectly with the height of my shelves in the pantry. Then for my brown sugar, icing sugar, and marshmallows, I went with the OXO Good Grips Pop Rectangular 1.4 L Containers. These containers are amazing! I love them so much! They are so easy to open, and they also lock in the freshness very well with their airtight seals. On the next shelf, I added extra drinks. We used to keep them all in the basement, but now since adding them in the pantry we have found it at a lot easier to refill the fridge since the extras are so close by.

For the second half of the pantry, I went with a variety of containers, and bins.

For large food items, I got the same OXO containers that I used for my baking items above. For the smaller snack items like Goldfish and Teddy Grams, I got the OXO Good Grips Pop Cereal 1.1L Storage Dispensers. These containers have a tapered front for easy pouring which makes it very easy for the kids to pour a snack into a bowl.

For the rest of the kids snacks, I got 2 of the InterDesign Linus Fridge Binz Split Bins. Having the split down the center helps keeps the snacks clearly organized, and stops things from moving around. These bins are great quality- very heavy duty plastic. I also love that they have a handle on the front of them, so it makes it easy for the kids to go in the pantry and grab a snack from one of the bins.

Finally for things like the boxed food, peanut butter, coffee, hot chocolate etc. I used a bunch of the large InterDesign Linus Fridge Binz Deep Bins. These also have handles as well which makes it very easy to pull out of the pantry and grab what you need. I also love how deep they are too!

I am so happy with how our pantry turned out!  Now onto the next kitchen cupboard, lol

I hope this post inspires you to organize your own pantry! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Creating a elegant table for Thanksgiving Dinner

I am so excited for Thanksgiving this weekend! Not just because of the turkey dinner, and pumpkin pie, but because I will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in our home. Usually my mom hosts all the holidays for our family, but this year I offered to do it. I thought it would be nice to give her a break from all the prepping, cooking, and cleanup for once, so she can relax and enjoy the company more.

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, I wanted to create the perfect table for my family to admire. So, I headed to Kitchen Stuff Plus to pick out everything!

Walking into Kitchen Stuff Plus, and seeing all the variety they had to choose from, I knew I wasn’t going to have any trouble picking up what I needed for my table.

To dress up my table, I got this beautiful table runner in the colour linen. I also found matching napkins that I picked up as well. To add a little glitz, I found these pretty gold beaded round placemats, and matching napkin rings for the napkins. I love how the gold makes the white plates pop! The placemats, and napkin rings also come in a silver, and pewter colour.

The very first thing that caught my eye when I walked in the store was this Tuscana Fluted Bakeware. I am going to get so much use out of these! They can go straight from the oven to the table. Perfect for lasagna, chicken and potatoes, or apple pie. The list goes on, there are so many things you can bake with them.  They are also microwave, and dishwasher safe as well.

I picked up 2 sizes for my table. The large white rectangle, and the large white square one. They have other sizes and colours you can choose from if you prefer smaller ones, or in another colour.

These A La Carte white diamond plates are hands down my favourite thing I purchased for my table. They are so gorgeous! I used 2 sizes- the dinner plate, and the side plate. I am actually going to go back and buy a few more, so I have 8 of each. I love that they are very simple, yet stylish, and perfect for everyday use. I have been looking for the perfect white plate for a while now, because the set I have is very dated. I am so glad I found these!

To go with the plates that have the Diamond cut design around the edges, I found these pretty glasses that have a triangle design on them. The triangles are back to back, which create a diamond pattern which match the plates nicely.  These glasses come in a set of 6, and would make any table look elegant.

Finally to complete my table setting,  I wanted to add some decor to the table. I found these glass stem candleholders, which made the perfect centerpiece.  They come as a set of three, but I only used two. They give the table some height, and will add great ambiance in the evening, once the candles are lit.
