Project Pantry Over-Organization

recycled kombucha bottle label organization
Oh yes!  Over-organization.  
I'm hoping if I treat my pantry like a decor/art project maybe, just maybe, it will be too pretty for me to trash a la Hurricane Jenn.  Let's start at the beginning, shall we?

pantry construction
Ummm... so I guess it was kind of abused from the start.  Moving on!

Leave it to me to build a house + then do something like this to it.  Bad Jenn!  Bad!

Hookay, so here's how it went down:

I was desperate for some pretty glass storage containers to fill with pastas, grains, nuts, seeds, etc... but needed a more affordable option.  Lucky for me, I have an uber expensive indulgence that comes in a pretty glass bottle.  Suddenly the $4 a pop I spend on my "happy tea" doesn't seem quite so indulgent.

I just blatantly lied to you, they're still ridiculously expensive and indulgent in my eyes.  I haven't had a kombucha in two weeks and this weekend i'm going to close my eyes, swipe my credit card, and hope for the best.  Wait.. what were we talking about again?  

Ridiculously expensive FREE glass containers!

So typically, I either recycle these bottles or upcycle them in a paint project.  
This time I had bigger plans for them.


You can pick up these chic adhesive alphabet stickers from your local craft store, or even make your own!  These Recollections Alpha Stacks cost roughly $5 for a 450pk but often go on sale for 40% off.  Some craft stores will put out weekly coupons so when in doubt, google before you buy! <3  Of course I snagged mine with a 40%-off coupon from Michael's Craft Store -- My mom taught me never to pay full price for anything... So naturally I'm still using my discounted laptop from college and driving my first [less than gently used] car from high school.  I think I've gotten my money's worth by now ;)

I don't think I'll ever outgrow stickers! =)
I used a single letter to label each item.  Q for Quinoa, P for Panko, and so on.

The opening of the bottle is wide enough to be filled with nearly anything!
[Quinoa] [Chia Seeds] [Pasta] [Oats] [Millet] [Salt] [Sugar] [Panko] [Corn Meal] [etc...]

Tips on removing the label:
To remove the wrap-around label, run your bottle under super hot water for a few seconds.  Reduce the temp so it doesn't burn your hands, [keep it as hot as you can handle! hehe] and continue to run bottle under the hot water as you gently peel the label off.  If you're patient the entire thing will come off in one piece, but if not, continue to run under water and "roll" the remaining label off with your thumb.  Goo-Gone or polish remover will pick up any leftover bits!  A Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover will remove the date stamp from the lid, if needed.

Some of these came from bulk bins, and others were liberated from their bulky cardboard boxes.  It looks 100x better with them all in the same container, and the labels help tired chefs avoid mishaps.  Plus they're super cute and unified with their snazzy new labels.  

I decided to take everything that would eventually end up all over the pantry [spices, snacks, baking supplies, nuts, tea, etc...] and toss it into plastic boxes and drawers.  I've been holding onto these little storage carts since college and they just keep coming in handy!  You can pick them up virtually anywhere and they're uber affordable.  I can't recommend these enough!  Clutter-busters extraordinaire.


Naturally I had to label them! <3

project pantry organization storage solutions

My in-laws gave me a package of plastic storage boxes during the move and, at the time, I had no idea what to do wit them!  How perfect are these for the pantry?  Now my spices and canned goods are neat and organized.

No pantry?  Maximize those cabinets!  Glass bottled pastas, cereals, and nuts are way more space saving than bulky bags and boxes.  Streamline your storage by slimming it down into thrifted or upcycled bottles and jars.  Labels tie them all together and make it super easy to find everything!  Regardless of your food storage situation, a little organization goes a loooong way.

  5. This is a great solution for your kombucha bottles ... and it looks incredibly lovely and super organized. I too have a HUGE collection of those same bottles ... Chris keeps threatening to recycle them, but I'm KNOW I'll find a use for them yet :)

  6. I love the idea of re-using Kombucha bottles. I never thought of that. I have a plethora of empty peanut butter jars that I use, but maybe it is time to start adding some variety.

  8. This is dangerous...it gives me a reason to buy all the kombucha I want :-)

  9. Nice job! Looks super awesomely organized (and pretty taboot).
    I usually use mason jars, but the kombucha bottles are a great idea and would fit perfectly in a ridiculously shallow cupboard I have...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Eureka! I have been trying to eliminate some plastic containers I use in my house (due to the questionable Bisphenol A in them) but glass containers are so hard to come by. How have I NOT thought to use Kombucha bottles?! Genius you are!
    And bonus - I friggin' love that tea. :)

  39. Jealous doesn't even BEGIN to cover how I feel after reading this post. Your pantry is gorgeous! I'm an organization freak and I label everything- I literally have OCD.
    Using your old Kombucha bottles for storage is brilliant! Now I have an excuse to keep indulging. (:
    Everything in my apartment is pretty organized, but I'm planning to RE-organize my pantry after seeing yours!

  47. Girl, you so brilliant. Is a for alphabet soup? So stinkin' cute. Oh, and $4 for 2 servings, pshh cheaper than 1 glass of wine at a bar. There, justified.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love everything about this post...recycling the kombucha bottles, stickers even the little "Pin it" button discreetly inserted into the post. You are too clever, girl!

    I would love to try this in my pantry, but with 3 little ones would need to store the bottles in something so they wouldn't hit the tile floor and explode. Ideas? I'm also stoked to give the label maker we bought for our school room another job. I love and would def use the stickers, but the OCD part of me would have to put a complete label at least on the bottom of the bottle. ;)

    1. I have the same dilemna with glass containers / tiled pantry floor & klutzy DH. :-O
      Have a ton of diff. sized coffee creamer bottles in a craft bin in the garage, two diff. sizes. Some are clear (Bailey's), most are white (Coffeemate, etc.). But willing to give this a whirl with labels, they'd look awesome. Now if the creamers just came in SQUARE bottles, it would make it much easier to stack! ~Sunny

  49. I use glass containers but you took this to a whole new level (of course). I'm jealous but then I also though of getting the rice and cornmeal into the somewhat narrow bottles and my head hurt. Did you use a funnel? And yes, I will always ask the questions that make me sound like a moron. I use canning jars but don't have enough so I also have yucky boxes and it makes me crazy. I'm inspired. Project pantry this weekend and project kids desks and project closet....

  50. I have an idea- ill move into your pantry, and bring lots of pumpkin bread! Love the pantry, Type A'ers unite!

  51. LOVE the org ideas for the cabinets and pantry. Unfortunately I am hooked on the uber-expensive POP containers. And I reuse them in different ways. So I am wondering if labeling is a good idea. But I have TONS of stickers from my scrapbooking days.

    And I pinned your idea's!

  53. I think I am in love! This looks so great and I love the stickers you used! I need to start saving my glass pasta jars for stuff like this:)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow! Want to come organize my cabinets for me? :D I could definitely use some over-organization. Genius to use "free" glass bottles, I've got to find a drink/food I really like that also comes in a good reusable container!

    ReplyDelete
  55. What a great idea!!! Now to drink all those beverages for to get that amount of containers lol!! I am not lucky enough to have a pantry, I just have an extra cupboard but I will make it work.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I LOVE this! I don't have a pantry as big as yours, so it leads to even more messes. I dream of one day owning my own house and being able to organize it. But for now, I'll just look at yours and dream!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Very cute! I love this! I love it when functional meets pretty. ie. you.

  65. I think I'm going to do this idea, with slightly different materials. I've been trying to figure out the details since I was at your house, haha! Looks great, Jenn.

  66. That is such a clever use of the left over Kombucha bottles! They look super cute too!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Jenn, you know what?

    I love you!!

    And right now I particularly love your domestic goddessness. The pantry is GORGE. And using kombucha bottles to store staples is a fantastic idea...Those labels are so darn chic! Even though I don't have a pantry, you've inspired me to clean out my kitchen cupboards this weekend. And sip a kombucha while doing it. Because it's been way too long since I've had a fix. xoxoxo

  68. What a grrreat, great idea!! I especially love the 'spice it up' ahhh - can't wait til the hubs and I have a place to settle down into =)

  69. I love your blog--especially the graphic of peas and crayons--so creative! Thanks for the great ideas for my pantry! I love using glass jars to organize and store but never thought of recycling tea and other jars! The labels make it super cute and I'm totally inspired to revamp my cabinets now! Thanks!

  70. Fantastic use of space! Love the labels. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. That is fantastic. What a great idea to reuse the bottles! $4 AND you get the tea? They're practically free aren't they?

    Ugh, my whole house needs a makeover. We're moving next month though, so I think I'll hold off. :)

  72. Awww.....I love your organisation skills! The labels look cute! Great work sweetie! my cupboards are kinda messy right now and you've totally inspired me to sort them out!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Great, great, great idea!! My husband becomes obsessed every once in a while with storage boxes, like they're going out of production and we need to buy up as many as possible. We have roll out trays in our cabinets and pantry that we (he) easily installed on our (his) own :) They're awesome.

    p.s. when i looked at that first picture i thought the alphabet pasta was rice, so i was very confused about it being labeled with an 'a'.

  76. Hey love muffin i'm uber impressed by this organization. Could you please come over and organize my new kitchen? and closet? and bdrm? and office? and etc etc etc? LOVE the use of GT bottles, I've been using them to store popcorn...just a little bit ghetto since I'm to lazy to peel off the labels, haha. Love ya, xoxo!

  77. LOVE it. I'm semi-obsessed with organization. You did an awesome job.

    ReplyDelete
  78. You might be the smartest person on the planet! My husband drinks the kombucha teas almost daily and we've always just recycled the glass container. I'll be keeping them now! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Great idea. I've been recycling pb, pasta sauce and salsa jars for bulk item storage but I'll definitely keep the next Kombucha bottles that pass through too!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I just started reading your blog. Now a fan! :) Found you off the GT's fb page. This is a really cute idea for the bottles. I just wanted to tell you that I felt the exact same way about Gt's booch. Justifiable splurge, right? I then looked into brewing my own. I was intimidated at first and didn't know if it would be something I could do. However, I love to cook & try new recipes (http://ryansfoodadventures.blogspot.com/) and so I figured I'd give it a shot. All it takes is a bottle of Gt's original (to start the scooby) a gallon glass jar (You can buy a pickle jar and eat them/give the pickles away) some organic black tea and sugar. That's it. There are TONS of websites that give you step by step directions on how to brew. If you don't have a scooby/mother to start off with and you are "growing one from scratch" hence the Gt's original (has to be original-no flavors) it will take a little longer than normal but once you have a scooby to work with-brewing time can take 5-7 days and you will have a GALLON of delicious, fizzy, healthy kombucha of your own. I've been doing this for about 2 months now and consider myself a pro. I was soooo freaked at first but it's SO EASY. I just wanted to let you know. If you have any questions; send me a shout on my (tiny and not updated often) blog! You seem very crafty and I think it's something you could handle. I love spreading the home brewed booch love now, heheh...Well, G/l & awesome blog.

This is such a genius idea.  I love organizing, but i can never think of ideas to make organizing easier without spending a ton of money...Anyway, I LOVE kombucha and probably recycled at least 10 bottles this past week....Not anymore.  I will definitely be saving them to organize with!  Thanks for the great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Hey Sharon! I have enough bottles to pour all the contents in to them until the boxes are empty.. and then I simply recycle the boxes [though a few I have managed to reuse for other things - love doing that!]

  123. My entire house is in need of organizing! I have 2 boys and a husband who think it's a challenge to un-organize everything after I've organized it and I don't have the energy to keep re-organizing it. Our bedroom, bathroom & kitchen need organization in the worst way....

    I LOVE how you organized your pantry. So beautiful!!

    1. Michael's Craft Store has them! They've carried them for the past few years so they should still sell them -- I'll double-check next time I go! =)
