I recently organised my herbs and spices using some Avery labels and have been wanting to try out their other home organising products and labels around the house.
Next on the to do list was to organise the pantry and for this I used Avery's arched organisation labels and printed them using the design and print online section of the website.
Here's a sneak peak of how they turned out oh la la ...... I know pretty fancy aren't they!
I did a shelf at a time and gave all the shelves a good wipe clean and threw out anything past the used by date, thankfully there wasn't anything too scary in there as we have only been in the renovated kitchen for 2.5 years.
I made a note of the jars I needed to replace like the large glass jars, although I love them because they're recycled coffee jars, unfortunately they are just too big for the new pantry.
After months of stalking the supermarket shelves until the plastic containers were on special, I finally got them at half price and stocked up on a few different sizes, peeled the labels off, washed and dried them, and they were ready to use.

I entered in the product code for the arched labels and all the templates came up, I picked the design I liked and then uploaded the spreadsheet file which did a mail merge of all the labels. It took mere seconds which saved heaps of time compared to having to individually type them all in!
Once the labels are ready to print, it will convert to a PDF to print out which is another chance to check everything is spelt properly and fits on the labels. I did a test run by printing on some blank paper before putting the labels in the colour printer for the final print out.
It only took about 20 minutes to design and print off these 30 labels which was pretty impressive.
Next I removed all the old mix matched labels from my jars and containers and replaced them with the new personalised labels.
I love how the labels look and it's so much easier to see what's there.
I even got ohhhs and ahhhs from my parents when I opened the pantry the other day, I bet they wish I was blogging when I lived at home so I could test out these cool products in their pantry!
I'm really happy with how it looks all neat and tidy, I wish I'd organised the pantry like this a long time ago!
How do you keep your pantry organised?
