Say goodbye to my old pantry, because it is outta here!
Here’s the problem: I see the first couple of cans, then it’s a huge jumbled mess. Behind that big jar of Jif right there are 4 more because they got caught behind things, and I didn’t know I had them and bought more.
The bottom baking area was also a huge repository hidden away. When I stock up on extra brown sugar, etc during sales, I couldn’t see them after I stowed them away.
Here’s where you can see how really deep these shelves were, which was great for storage, but not for retrievable storage…
Then ShelfGenie entered my life.
Joe came and talked me through the process, then the installer came to measure my cabinets. Then all was quiet for about 2 weeks while my custom glide-out shelves were handcrafted.
Then this little miracle occurred….
See those 2 boxes there? I just couldn’t wait to get everything organized and I took these before I remembered that you’d like to see the shelves without all of our consumables on them.
This is the middle shelf pulled all the way out. I could sit a 75 pound kid on there just fine.
I wouldn’t do it, but I could.
But if I did, it wouldn’t break.
(And that’s probably the information you’re after.)
And here we are all loaded up: all 4 jars of pasta sauce, 5 bags of flour (!), 3 brown sugars, 5 jars of Jif, and 9 different random boxes of pasta I didn’t know I even had.
Obviously, I’m so much happier to open this now organized pantry. It’s uber user-friendly. I also hope it makes me a much wiser shopper.
Here are some other ideas from ShelfGenie:
Words aren’t necessary for this…
These folks may already have been neat.
I store our games, puzzles, etc in a similar hutch and this would be pretty incredible…
Can you imagine the change from the old pantry? We don’t even need to see the before.
This one was actually the most dramatic change for me. There’s even an extra empty shelf!!
Do you have glide-out shelves in your kitchen/pantry/laundry/bathroom? How have they helped you? If you want them, where would you use them first?
