Lately I've been making an attempt to get my pantry a little more organized. One of the things that has bugged me from the start is this shelf.
It's just a little wire hanging shelf we put up when we moved in. I have always used it to keep my aluminum foil, wax paper, plastic storage bags and those kind of things. When I've needed a particular roll that is in the back I usually knock something else off in the process. Plus the roll of parchment paper is too long and I have to prop it up on one side.
I've been looking for some over-the-door hanging shelves to use inside the door but I have not been able to find one that the baskets are long enough.
Rich got this handy little plastic bag for a gift (it had six beers in it) a few years ago and I thought it might work to hang on the pantry door and hold all those rolls. It has dividers on the inside and even had a little tab to hang it with as you can see on the bottom picture.
So I put a command hook up and after waiting the required hour hung my little bag and filled it with all the rolls that were on the shelf. Almost immediately the little tab broke and everything fell to the floor!
So I hung it by the handle but it sagged too much and swung back and forth whenever the door opened or closed.
The next day I bought two more commend hooks and put them next to each other as far apart as I could stretch the handle of the bag. Once again I waited the required hour. Note: Looking at this picture I think I probably should have bought white ones so they blend in a little better.
Anyway, that worked much better and the bag stays still when the door moves. I intend it to be a temporary solution until I can find some kind of wire basket that is wide enough for that pesky parchment paper roll.
We've been going to Maxwell's T-ball practices every week and they are fun! Maxwell loves it but he's shy and I think he's one of the youngest and smallest kid on the team. He'll participate as long as his mom or dad are close.
Levi on the other hand is ready to play! Unfortunately he has to wait a few years until he's old enough!
