The floor of our pantry has been a source of stress for me as far as organizing goes. Until now, I’ve just sat the larger items directly on the floor or used rolling carts, but the carts don’t always hold what I need and since the pantry is right by the back door and we have a yellow lab, dog hair, leaves and dirt/debris slide under the pantry door often. Bleh!
I wanted something to corral the larger items and keep them away from the mess, so I had Brad attach casters to some fruit crates that I had purchased at a garage sale. They fit under the lowest shelf well, and do just what I needed them to do!
I like that I can roll them out to get something or put it away, and then roll them right back! I use them to store large containers of vinegar and baking soda, extra coffee and baby formula, Brad’s protein powder, and anything else larger that doesn’t have another place to go.
At some point I may paint or decorate them, but for now this is working just fine!
The rest of the pantry is in need of a semi-annual clean-out, so maybe that will be a weekend project!
