Hello lovelies! Those of you who have been following my posts lately know that I love organizing small spaces. I’ve come to enjoy organizing small spaces because I recently downsized to a temporary home. My goal has been to demonstrate that small spaces can be and stay beautifully organized.
Small spaces are usually underrated and challenging to organize, but I just love a good challenge, so when the makers of Ball® home canning products contacted me to be part of their Ambassador Program I just couldn’t say no. It came at the right time and it just felt like my new beginning of spring season. I’ve been a fan of their products for ages and it just tied up perfectly ’cause I had scheduled a new tiny pantry project.
This project wasn’t just about organizing a tiny pantry but was also about creating one that never existed in this small home by repurposing a tiny living room cabinet to that effect. No decluttering was necessary since the cabinet had been unused for some time. With the list of dried goods in hand, their respective quantities, the space measurements, and a variety of Ball® jars, the fun began. It’s like playing a puzzle but with smaller pieces. Small quantities in small jars, large quantities in larger jars, a simple tiered arrangement, in approximately 30 minutes we had envisioned the perfect design for this tiny pantry.
For this project we used Ball® jars of different sizes with the objective of making it beautiful to the eye but above all functional, taking into consideration the routines and dynamics of the family. The top shelf consists mainly of dried goods used more frequently and the bottom one mostly baking products among others. It all came together with the choice of these jars: the smooth sided wide mouth quart jars, the wide mouth pint and half jars, the mini jars, the regular mouth 16oz smooth jars and my favourite the super wide mouth one gallon decorative jar.
The jars on their own are gorgeous. Yes, the beauty is in their simplicity, all products look yummy when poured in and the ensemble makes the project appealing, extra special and unique to the family using it. You could skip the labelling since the jars are clear…well, if only one person were to use them. How about we label everything to make it easier in case we need to ask another family member to grab something? Specially ’cause this pantry has some unique products stored. To label them, we used a chalk pen, easy to erase in case we need to substitute the content on the jars.
Let’s not forget the expiration dates. You can easily write it on Ball® lids but for this particular project we used a small sticker on the bottom of the jars as a personal preference.
Hooray! The project is complete. A tiny pantry with a beautiful array of colors. Now let’s ask “what’s cooking tonight?”.
