Messy, unorganized pantry?
These food storage containers are what your kitchen has been asking for all along! Read to see how my pantry went from a total mess and food chaos to total organized (and pretty) pantry makeover goals in about an hour with these ingenious OXO containers!
Here’s what my pantry looked like a week ago:
I became totally fed up with our walk-in pantry. Even after cleaning it out and organizing food by groups, I was still totally unhappy with its appearance. It just looked like organized chaos, and I’m pretty sure these pictures speak for themselves. 😂👇
It also drove me nuts when the kids would pull something out of the pantry and wouldn’t close it properly (like their cereal) – so it ended up all over the floor if not taken back out of the pantry with care. 😐
I was on a mission to find a solution! And if I’m going to spend the money to be functional, it had better be pretty, too! LOL! I found some major inspiration from Pinterest, and it became really clear to me that OXO containers were the solution my home needed!
Here’s why I fell in love with OXO containers:
- They have an air-tight seal
- Easy push-button lid (& super kid-friendly, too)
- Clean and stylish design
- Innovative shape for great use of space
Here is what my pantry looks like now 😍 :
I was able to store all of our dry foods so easily with these containers and clear out all the boxes and junk! Most importantly, everything is extremely functional and easy to see, so the black hole where food once hid past its expiration date is no longer an issue.
Breakfast with the kids is running more smoothly, too. They can easily get their cereal from our small pantry in the morning without me hovering over them. Plus, they can easily open and close the containers, and I no longer need to deal with plastic bags and unopened boxes everywhere!
Hip Tip: These markers I found at Target are for wine glasses, but they work perfectly for OXO containers. I can write down what’s in each one and keep track of expiration dates. Plus, they wash off easily when you’re ready to change contents.
Here’s our pantry before and after for some inspiration:
Within about an hour, our pantry went from organized chaos to total pantry goals!
