When we bought this house there were several things about it that I loved. BUT, there was one thing that made it THE HOUSE for us. The pantry!
The pantry in this house is quite spacious which is better than we could have known at the time it would be. Soon after moving into this house we found out I had celiac disease. And our house went half gluten free. Then we found out that both of our girls inherited celiac and our house is now 3/4+ gluten free.
Gluten free takes a lot of space if done from scratch and our pantry allows lots of space for that!
I try to take everything off the shelves and clean them about once every 6 months. This last time I did it, I posted pictures on Instagram and was asked a few times for a tour. So, here is a tour of our AWESOME pantry (and the extra shelf that my husband built for me in the coat closet across the "hall" from it.
Some things we use to organize our pantry:
- Anchor Hocking Glass Jars
- Half Gallon Ball Jars
- Wide Mouth Canning Jar Lids
- Food Grade 5 Gallon Buckets
- Gamma Seal Lids
Where we grocery shop:
Hopefully this was encouraging for other homemakers! We love this space and the way it allows us to prevent cross-contamination of gluten with gluten free foods.
