In the Pantry

I need to borrow a wide angle lens so you can take in all the Easter goodness at once.
I cleaned out my pantry.  While I was in there, I bleached down the baseboards, threw out 3 bottles of salad dressing, and made room for some of the baskets I picked up atTarget on clearance last month.  
 I’m not going to brag about the deal I got on these baskets and rub the price in anyone’s face…but let’s just say it started “35” and ended with “cents.”
Boomshakalaka.
Now, on one hand, I found a great alternative to all the pricey crap they sell at the Container Store. On the other hand, it looks like the Easter Bunny exploded all over my pantry.
This is the sacrifice of a bargain hunter.

    I’ve got to say, I wasn’t convinced when you first talked about using those baskets for storage, but looking at these pictures, I’m a believer. And on clearance? Boomshakalaka, indeed.

    I am going to gather up the number of Easter Baskets I have collected over the years and put them to good use. Beautiful, organized pantry.

    Amazing idea.. i always see random baskets at yardsales & wondered what i could do with them! do you think they would work if you painted them white? or whatever color.. i’m thinking that could make them a little bit less easterbunny and jlittle more of a subtle touch of color! just a thought- if i end up doing it- i’ll post pics :)

    i just got back into blogging but i’m following you on facebook, LOVE your blog!

    I love it. It is so you, Peaches. I would do the same thing if I had a walk in pantry. Mine is enclosed.

    Off topic, but I would like another Friday flowers that was a necklace. I love jewelry. Or more jewelry in general.

    I thought I had cracked the Target code. I thought something ending in 4 was the final sale. Ending in 8 is the next to last price. Now tell me what you are doing with an institutional size can of Hershey’s syrup? This pantry reminds me of the time when I was 5 or 6. I picked up the can of Hershey’s syrup and dropped it into the basket of newly laundered white things waiting to be ironed. I never said anything about it. I love pantries with windows. In New York City, something that size would be a baby’s bedroom.

    I had not thought about painting baskets — that is a GREAT idea. I see them all the time…would be easy to amass a decent collection for less than $20…then spray paint them all a fabulous color…what a great idea. I may try that in my project room. I have a can of lime green that has *wicker written all over it.

    I know, right?! Having a walk-in pantry is such a luxury. I had an apartment a few years ago with a galley kitchen of the same size. I don’t know what I’ll do if I ever move again…this pantry has spoiled me rotten.

    The Hershey’s syrup was a gift a couple years ago… I still have not opened. Fingers crossed it’s still good. I also have a couple of gifted bucket-size jars of Potbelly’s brown mustard. Do you have Potbelly’s out East? They might be a mid-western chain.

    I second the love for jewelry and/or flowers. You could always feature it on your blog after the recipient gets it. That way you get to make jewelry and give it away to loved ones. They enjoy it without seeing it on your blog first. We get to live vicariously though you and your fantastic creativity and MAYBE even learn something. And if it includes a great story that makes it all the more awesome.

    I love pantries!! And miss mine – have had a pantry in the last two houses but now I’m in a condo with basically a galley kitchen. I have all sorts of things now that I can’t reach b/c they’re on a top shelf and pans that I seldom use but no place to store them…hmmm perhaps THEY should be on the top shelves!! Good idea!! Thanks!
