I like my pantry because it’s big enough and it’s convenient to the cooking area in my kitchen. But I’m not in love with the wire shelves. Things tip over on them. Things like small bottles and boxes of cereal. And things spill, like molasses dripping onto boxes and cans, creating sticky puddles in the floor.
Paying for solid shelving was out of the question. I found a cheaper solution with the shelf liners at Walmart.
It’s made by Contact brand. It’s non-adhesive and easy to work with. Just cut it with scissors to fit the shelf. Although it is flexible, it is also heavy duty and creates a much more solid surface than the wire.
Even though you can see the wire through the liner, you can’t really see down to a lower shelf or up through it to a higher shelf. I didn’t realize how much being able to see through the shelves helped me find things. However, it is so much nicer to have things stand up rather than tip over. The pantry stays neater.
Each roll cost about $5. I needed a whole roll for each shelf. I don’t think I could have gotten any kind of solid shelving for $20 total.
Over a year ago I wrote a post on organizing my spices. You might want to take a look at it, especially if your pantry has a door like a closet.
For the record, Contact brand has no idea who I am. I just happened to find their product and like it.
