More and more people are turning to couponing to find a way to make vacations and Christmas gifts happen, but if you’re like me, you don’t have a giant custom-built pantry to hold all your bargain finds. What’s a stockpiler to do? Turn to the nooks and crannies that are going to waste otherwise.
Here’s a tour of my kitchen and laundry closet and a few secret hideaways where I store everyday supplies.
Here’s the kitchen. On top of my cabinets are containers that hold extra salad dressing, crackers, etc.
They are tagged so hopefully I remember what’s in where! Dried beans, tea, and other pantry staple extra have a nice home up there until I run out in the pantry.
Here is the backspash area of the stove. This darling tin was a gift from my brother last year. I think I ate all the mints and poor husband never got any!
Now it holds all my spice packets for seasoning, leaving me more spare room in the cupboard.
A few vintage jars can bring style and function to a windowsill . . .
Or used tins! I love this one next to my stove.
On to the laundry room in my next post.
