"And such a pantry! Laura was so delighted with the pantry that she stood in the doorway for several minutes, admiring it."
~ Laura Ingalls Wilder, The First Four Years
As our family is purchasing more in bulk to save money, broaden our food storage supply and avoid weekly grocery store runs (thus saving money on gas), this means a reorganization of our pantry space (and this new series). Here are some posts to encourage you to be purposeful and create a well stocked pantry. To begin, we are sharing our favorite 10 Reasons to Prepare a Pantry and Some Food "Storage" for Thought!
And finally, if you are interested in how to turn your pantry into a homemaking hobby, visit here. We also share suggestions on how to create a pantry space when you haven't one. Other links of interest may be our Prepare Your Own Pantry/Products ~ An A - Z Index and Making Your Own Medicine with Pantry Provisions. And if you would like some recipes for building up your pantry, visit here!

I will definitely be checking it out - we are rebuilding our pantry in early May in order to fit bulk items and store all of our jarred goods in it. I'm picturing oodles of pretty lined baskets and neatly labelled containers...ReplyDelete

Wonderful :) Nice to "meet" you Sue!Delete
I happened upon your post last time from Frugally Sustainable! I love your post. I was perusing around your site! This is so informative!ReplyDelete
Thank you Jill, you are welcome here anytime :)Delete
I love this site. I want to have a nice pantry, but I get stumped at the organization and the using of it. It does no good to have extra, if it goes to waste buy not rotating enough. I do not want to have too much of one thing and not enough of the other. I read things you are doing and I want to jump write in and do the same thing--but then I stop and ask myself "Would I or my family really use this" And knowing how much to have on hand, at one time and the herbs and medicnial uses, just bog my mind. I wan to do it all and know that I can't or don't need to do it all. I just do not want anything to go to waste for this is a job that is constantly ongoing. But I love thinking about all the things you do and I have tried a few things. Sorry this is so long. Thanks for being here.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing here today! It is nice to hear what others think who are reading this :) Every home is unique and different. The purpose of this blog is to inspire you to love your home and see it as a work of love. And it is very true, if you will end up wasting your extra, then there is nothing prudent about it. Just organize and fine tune what you have and keep supplied of what you need. That is really the basic idea. And don't worry, none of us can or should do it ALL! We do what is good and beneficial for our family. Happy homemaking and hope to hear from you again ~ JES :)Delete
Love your pantry labels!! Thank you for providing them! Can you share with me what font you used on them? (I have a few I need to add in the blank ones and can't seem to quite match them up!)ReplyDelete
I believe it was Arial... Hope this helps :)Delete

Super cute! It all seems so adult :) I need to get better at organizing all of my pantry items. These labels look like they'd be perfect!ReplyDelete
