Christina's Corner // A Grab & Go Station is What Your Pantry Needs

Odd Cravings Lead to Odd Kitchen Behavior

Do you ever just walk into your kitchen, open the refrigerator door, and just stare at it until what you’re craving pops out at you? When that doesn’t work, you open up the freezer and nothing easily accessible can be found. Then, in a last-ditch effort, you shuffle over to the pantry and repeat the ritual. I have never met a person who doesn’t do this on some level. We have cravings at the oddest times that have to be met right then and there. We get bored and stumble into the kitchen to satisfy our need to do something, anything. 

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures 

Sometimes we give up then and there and try to move on to something else, but if we are hungry and don’t want to fight with actually cooking something, we are more likely to open that DoorDash or Dominoes app in the hopes that someone else will provide the food that we need. But we don’t always have to function like this. There are ways to stay organized and keep snack foods in easy reach so we don’t end up ordering unnecessarily or going for the junk to satisfy boredom. 

Pull Out Drawers in Your Pantry Are the Solution

Modular Closets has a system of pull-out drawers that they can add to any pantry system that makes for an excellent tool to keep you organized and save you time and money. All you have to do is fill these drawers with snacks that you know you will eat and create a grab-and-go station for everyone in your house to enjoy. 

Make sure that you have snacks that you know are beneficial for your lifestyle so that you aren’t tempted to just eat the first accessible thing in your pantry.  You can also put your children’s’ snacks on a lower shelf to allow easy access for them so that they can have a little bit of independence when it comes to snack time. 

These Aren’t Just For Snacks

You don’t have to utilize these shelves for your snacks, you can use them for utensils, small kitchen tools, Ziploc bags, or tinfoil. However you need to make it work in your space, those drawers are an excellent way to keep you loving your space. Plus, who wouldn’t want drawers in their pantry?

Happy Organizing!
