Organize Simplify Create Design
It is perpetual, living life and keeping it simple. Peace of mind comes from having a place for things. As I watched "Horton Hears a Who", with my grandchildren I thought about no matter how "tiny" the thing, it deserves a home. So I live by the old adage, a place for everything and everything in its respective place...

Other ideas for using floor space under bottom shelf pantry
I found some white wire racks that are stand alone shelves, along with some that clip to the shelf above. I utilized each style in my pantry. The hanging ones come in handy for things I buy occasionally and don't get a container yet. (they have to earn one, lol) I also keep the different types of trash bags on these, one style for each size trash can I use. By the way, have you ever used Grippers? I love those things! You know when you throw something in the trash and the top slips off the lip of the can and slides into the trash can? I hate when that happens. Especially in the kitchen. Well, the makers at Hefty must have known about that annoying problem, because the Gripper is like a rubber band that hugs the top of the can until you are ready to empty it! So I reserve these bags for the kitchen trash, perfect for 13 gallon cans! Love that!
So after that little bonus blurb, back to pantry staging.
The stand alone shelving I found at WalMart. I use them to stack canned goods or bottles that will not fit in the Candensor. I love baskets, they are so versatile and add a decorator touch wherever they stay. Sometimes they just sit there and look cute! It is especially helpful if they are used to store things too! The little baskets hold some wood chips for my Cameron Cooker, and snacks I keep on hand, mostly for grandkids. The 100 calorie packs go here in case I need a snack! :)
If you have trays, oven racks, large cutting boards or in my case this large lazy susan, the wall on the side of shelves is a good place to keep them stacked, and since you are using the floor space they don't topple over ever time you walk in.
I think I have a bad case of "Blog Doubt"...
I hope somebody is out there? Please leave your comments so I know somebody is there. I'm not sure if anyone is interested in my grocery shopping list that works in any market?
I love your ideas too! Thanks!
