There is nothing more irritating than a large pantry shelf with items all jumbled into it. Decorative metal storage bins can help take care of this problem. Primarily made of metal wire, they make it easy to group like things together, to keep cans and cartons upright and to make sense of your prepping cupboard so the zombie apocalypse won’t find your major necessities buried under an obscure mound of trivialities. Or, as one charming young woman put it, it isn’t really so much about a zombie apocalypse as about that potential job loss, or the sudden price hike at the supermarket – but where is the drama, excitement and incentive in that?
Organizing the Pantry
There is nothing better than two or three sets of metal stacking baskets to get like things stored together in your pantry. The wire baskets allow the contents to be visible, and the dropped lips of the stacking baskets make it easy to access that box of instant pudding or envelope of gravy mix. No more confusion when searching for spices, powdered drink mix, tea or coffee – it is all sorted and kept at hand.
Easy Clean Organization
The bathroom is one of the busiest rooms in the house, and one of the places where just about everyone in the household wants to store some of their stuff. Plastics tend to hold moisture, which can promote the growth of things better left unnamed. But a wire mesh basket keeps items organized without accumulating moisture. If privacy or restraint of small items is desired, add a snap together or tie on cloth lining to the baskets.
Center Pieces and Hanging Baskets
Fill them with the right items and wire mesh baskets can be ornamental as well as useful. There is nothing more attractive in a kitchen than a well-filled fruit basket, whether it is a two or three-tiered standing basket or a hanging basket that is suspended from the ceiling.
