Kitchen Pantry Organization Tips | Burlap & Denim I have a problem, I am a compulsive organizer. My kitchen pantry is the subject of this weeks obsession: Pantry Organization. I like my pantry to be “merchandised” like a corner store. When I walk in or glance in at my pantry I want to be drawn in to a neat, clean, well stocked space.

An extension cord taped down taut keeps the ever useful toaster oven hidden out of sight in the pantry as well. I like to keep chip bags, bottles and other not uniformed packaging in larger bins or baskets. The popcorn machine is neither rarely used or light, BUT when we had it with in easy reach, we ate 3X as much popcorn. I love these bushel baskets I picked up at a yard sale.

Now, they are adorable and I keep one in the bathroom to hold my bobby pins which has made my life so much easier when doing my hair! Obviously the other thing I glittered was my iPhone case. *A note on the tea light holders, you can still use tea lights in them even with the glitter, just get the battery operated ones. I filled it with my lipglosses and lip liners. There are so many things you can do with Mod Podge and glitter.
