I Must Confess…welcome to my pantry!

This week I thought it could be fun to share what we have in each others’ pantries. Last year we had a similar prompt to share the contents of our fridges (which was unexpectedly fun) so it’s probably high time to come clean with our pantries too.

I must confess...the contents of my pantry

For something a little different, I have recorded a vlog so I can show you through my pantry. Probably not the most exciting video you will ever see but it does contain the following:

– proof that I have a “shelf of shame” in my pantry where junk food lives and appliances go to die

– evidence that we still have lots of processed food despite our aim to eat healthier and less processed food

– my very nasal voice but no glimpse of me – it was too hard to work out how to change the viewer once I hit record!

– a cameo from one of the puppies 🙂

So have a watch and feel free to share what’s in your pantry right now. Or you could confess to something far more interesting…

Link up, share the comment love and support the other confessors. That’s what I Must Confess is all about!

The Rules…

I Must Confess

– I Must Confess is a link up that runs every Monday and remains live for the whole week.

– You can link up something old or new, we’re not fussy around here.

– Feel free to go with the prompt for the week or add your own confession, whatever suits.

– Please go forth and share the comment love – it is bloggy crack after all!

– We’re always open to suggestions for the weekly prompt!

Next week’s prompt – are you in camp android or in camp iPhone (or camp I don’t give a toss?).

Spread the positivity!

  1. I will try to get my act together for next week! I’ve been such a slacker! My pantry is too big a mess to discuss, it would just make me feel guilty….

      I doubt you’ve been slack Lydia – it takes a while to get back into the groove after having some time away. Ease back into it at your leisure!!!

  2. That is such a tidy pantry, WOW. There is no way I could do that as all everyone would see is mess and lots of crap. Loved your commentary BTW x

    • Kirsty says:

      I actually filmed it a couple of times – the first few were a lot longer but I realised that you didn’t need to watch a 7 minute video of me talking about the details of my pantry!!!!

  3. Thats funny. Your pantry looks a lot like mine. I can tell by your lovely species that have gone off that you are not a chef (like me) and we get all excited about a new recipe, buy all the ingredients and never use them again.

    • Kirsty says:

      Exactly – I couldn’t even tell you when or why I bought a lot of the baking stuff. I have big dreams but no follow through when it comes to cooking/baking!

  4. Julie says:

    I think your pantry is looking pretty good. Twice the size of mine. You’ve got to have a little bit of unhealthy otherwise life gets a bit boring. Have a great Monday.

    Haha love your ‘shelf of shame’! Mine is the bottom shelf, tucked behind the wine (also on the shame shelf). Everything is very organised and neat, Kirsty. I’m rather impressed. x

    • Kirsty says:

      It’s unfortunately the only place in the house that is so organised! It needs to be due to our coeliac diagnosis – best to separate food where we can to limit chance of cross-contamination.

  6. That is an awesome size pantry!! I wish mine was a roomy. About 9 months ago we added pull our shelves to our pantry and it is deadset the best thing we’ve done. It make it soooo much easier to be able to pull the party drawers out to see what’s at the back.

    • Kirsty says:

      I would love pull shelves in mine – but more so in the tupperware cupboard. There is a reason I didn’t show that one!!!! V messy….

  7. Looks very neat – go on confess – did you clean it out first?! Love the video-bombing pup too 🙂

    • Kirsty says:

      I actually didn’t – except for that bottom shelf with the old cloves, bay leaves and sesame seeds! I am naturally neat so the pantry is one of the last and only bastions of neatness in my house – everywhere else has been decimated by kids or dogs!

  8. Firstly I’m super jealous you have a corner pantry, I’ve wanted one forever. Ironically on Friday night when I was getting bubs dinner ready I discovered her dinosaur pasta I’d only bought the week before was infested with weevils! On closer inspection I discovered the little buggers had got into almost all pasta, flour and nuts we had in the cupboard! So on the weekend I threw everything out and bought new screw top jars and cleaned the pantry out completely, vinegar and all. I’m still in the process of re stocking the pantry so it wasn’t completely ready for this week, but at least its all completely clean and new now. If I ever get weevils again I may lose my mind.

    • Kirsty says:

      Oh yuk. We found a cockcroach in a bag of nuts that wasn’t fully sealed. That was pretty horrible so I feel your pain with the weevils. Man they get into everything, don’t they?

  9. I will definitely be on prompt next week, I’ve been road testing the Sony Xperia and trying to decide if I love the camera on it enough to give up the iPhone.

    This week, rather than share my pantry, I’m sharing the chaos of the rest of the house after school holidays and confessing…

    I would love to have a pantry that big! Although I suspect it would be a case of more space equals more stuff for me lol! Your voice doesn’t sound nasal at all by the way!

  11. Do you know what? Our pantry layout is so crappy, I wouldn’t have a clue what half of the things are at the back! I know that I do have a thing for buying different types of tea but not really using it. Sort of like when people buy clothes but still have them hanging in their wardrobe with the tag attached a year later!

      I do like an exotic tea – feel free to invite me around some time to sample some of yours so I can help you clean out your pantry!

  12. My pantry has more appliances, tea and spices than actual food. Still, it is an absolute mess as no one understands my organisational strategies and we encourage the kids to help themselves.

    • Kirsty says:

      Good on you – I need to encourage the kids to help themselves more but I’d hate for my pantry to bear the brunt of them!

  13. Cate says:

    Love the little vid, my claim to shame is a jar of vegemite containing a bare scraping which I have been unable to part with as I live in Germany and there’s no Vegemite here, must order some from the internet!
