Mason Jar Storage for the Kitchen

The pantry in our new house is very small.  I'm not complaining... it's actually easier to find things in a smaller pantry, but I really have to stay on top of keeping it organized.  Small bags of nuts, rice and things like baking soda would still get lost regularly.  So I decided to bring some of those items out into the light of day!


I used the Silhouette and some Armour Etch to put the labels on each of the jars


I used a white painted 2 x 4 for the "shelf" that the back row is sitting on (actually, it's this sign until I replace it with another piece of wood)


You can see it peeking out behind the pecans in the picture above.


I love the way they look!  But my favorite part of this project:  all the space that is now freed up in the pantry.

What do you think?  Do you have any tips for organizing your food?  Let me know in the comments.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Blessings,
Jamie
