Kitchen Cupboard Make-Over: After

One of the original uncluttering space optimization systems from when our Mom's had the same problems we have now! Tupperware.


Our kitchen cupboard after converting it to a dry pantry. Called in the help of a tupperware lady to help us "re-zone" the kitchen. We now have a recession- and cooking process friendly dry pantry. Everything visible, uncluttered, sealed against pests, stored in larger (cheaper) quantities, sealed for freshness, within reach, etc. The bottles and cans were moved to another shelf under our staircase.


The key was to move the shelving heights to maximize better match container heights.

    Great before and after shots! The containers really do make all the much better than rolled up bags and other stuff.

    How much did you spend to get all this done? My wife's got the tupperware bug, but it is a recession, and money is tight after all.
  • Pieter Pieterse 6y

    Around $800AUD and it included other pantry containers not pictured here. Guess you can plan it and then buy your planned stuff over time. (-;

    i topped up your bread-crumb box whilst house-sitting, i was making chicken shnitzels. So you might notice two different 'grains' of crumbs in there.

    Best kitchen to work out of though, so bloody organised, maybe a little too organised.
  • Pieter Pieterse 6y

    Mate, I would not have noticed the different breadcrumb textures! LOL!

    Beautiful. You should send this pic to Tupperware (along with the before one). Maybe, then you can get a free gift!!! In a picture perfect world, that would be MY cupboard :-P
