To maximize storage in our pantry, I've always used the door. I have always wanted a "real" door organizer, but I could never find one that was reasonably priced with good reviews, so I settled for this temporary solution of a clear shoe organizer. Economical, and it worked fine for years. But eventually the wear and tear of two kids (ahem, Livvie) led to a few torn compartments.
I was ready for the real thing. So I searched online and saw that this one had good reviews and was only $36. I ordered it online and had it shipped to Target for next day, in store pickup.
Of course, no project is easy around here. I'd never really paid attention, but this door is narrower than a standard door. Which means that when hanging the rack, in order to avoid running into the door handle, you have to slide the rack over. But of course, it is a 6 panel door, so by sliding the rack over, the screws can only attach in a few spots on the one side. Sigh. We worked around it (thanks Mike!) and it seems sturdy so far.
We have so much room in our pantry now that I'm thinking I can add our baking supplies and/or our canned goods and things. Especially since right now it looks like we're running a 7-11 out of our house. We are big snackers, but this is particularly bad, and as we use up these snacks most will not be replaced. We had to bring snack for Ben's team, and so I bought some snacks at Costco for the team, but we went through very little.
Look at all the packaging I was able to get rid of. That door rack holds a TON!
While Mike and I were busy putting up the door rack, Ben was doing his own project--building "the Willis Tower" out of pillows.
