Ummm, yea. You can see the problem. I've been trying to figure out the best solution, a cost effective solution. I have a great big basket that fits perfectly to help corral the stuff and it also allows me to pull the basket out like a drawer.
Now to reorganize my supplies to fit better. Up until now I have not been sold on the idea of taking food out of its original packaging to put into matching containers. But as I surveyed my baking supplies, I realized a big part of the problem is that the bags of stuff and different shaped boxes and containers just don't stack well, resulting in an avalanche of supplies!
I found these containers at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for only $2 for a set of 4!
I used my most favorite thing ever - chalkboard spray paint, to transform the lids. I used a chalk ink marker on the lids.
Since the shelf is on the bottom I need to be able to see what's inside each container from the top of it.
Now I can easily maneuver through the shelf to find what I need.
For the items that had instructions or recipes on the packaging that I wanted to keep, I just cut out the information and taped it to the inside of the lid.
As I run out of items or replace them I can erase the writing from the lid and reuse them as needed.
What a difference! The new system paired with a baking shelf inventory will help me always know what I have on hand.
Blessings to you,
