Pantry Tune Up

The pantry pictured here was organized live in the home of a Danville Mother's Group member atone of their monthly meetings. The topic: Where and how you store your food matters. Say it's time to start dinner. At a glance, you don't find anything that could make a complete meal. How about trying to shelf food items together by ingredients for a certain meal (for example, the pasta, sauce, croutons, olives and other related fixings). Baskets are also a great way to store pantry items. For example take prepackaged snacks out of the box and put in a bin or basket labeled "snacks". The kids will know where to go and you'll be able to keep inventory. Don't forget the adult snack basket too!
