The Pantry Door

I have been seeing a lot of ideas lately on Pinterest and on several of the organizing blogs that I follow about organizing your pantry.  These ideas jump out at me because my pantry needs some TLC.  One thing that I do have organized–for the most part–is all those little things that end up getting shoved to the back of the shelves or fall off because there is no way it will stay propped up in front of the balsamic vinegar bottle, especially since the shelf is only 4″ deep.  Really.  I found this idea in a catalog that I received in the mail.  They had this great idea of hanging an organizer on the back of your pantry door to put all those “little ones” in.  That was a great idea, but the price for that puppy was not so great.  My take on this organizer was to head out to Walmart and buy a clear over-the-door shoe organizer for at least half the price.  When I finally get around to organizing the rest of the pantry (you are probably thinking it doesn’t need it.  I know.  But visually it is very cluttered to me.  I want a more streamlined look.  It’s just too busy), shown here…

…I am going to label my door organizer so that  others in our house will return things to the right place.  Yeah, said no homemaker EVER!  By the way, I have another organizer in my linen closet for all those items like sunscreen, cotton swabs, hotel soap/shampoo/conditioner, bedroom door “keys”, extra toothbrushes, etc.  You get the idea.  It is wonderful there as well.

    Jennie I really like the cansolidater because I can rotate the cans. I think I probably do store just as much and I just really like order wherever I can get it.

    I love the can holders! I've thought of that but wasn't sure it would be worth it. Have you been able to get more in than just stacking them in there?
