A modern pantry has to be more than just a closet where you store dry food for your family. There are now many more options for food than there used to be, and there are technologies that can make your storage space more useful than it has ever been before. Neglecting these things would keep you from experiencing all that modern society has to offer. Below are a few things that you need to make sure that you have in your pantry if you want it to be updated and useful.
If your food gets wet, it can mold, rot, and decay. Things like bread and other grain-based products are especially susceptible to this type of deterioration. However, many people do not realize that the same thing can happen if your pantry is wet and damp, even if there is not a direct leak. A dehumidifier can keep the air as dry as possible. This can help your food to last longer. It can improve health conditions and ensure that people do not get food poisoning. This one simple step will preserve your stored food, saving you money in the long run because you will not have to replace items until they are consumed.
It is important to note that a dehumidifier should especially be used if your pantry is in the basement. Below-ground spaces tend to hold a lot more moisture than above-ground spaces. Since basements are convenient for storage, a dehumidifier is the perfect way to make your basement incredibly useful.
Even if your pantry has some built-in shelves, you should not assume that it is as effective as it can be. You may be able to get shelving units with shelves that are closer together than the built-in ones, for instance, allowing you to fit more food in the same amount of space. You could also look for shelves that are deeper than the ones you have currently, making effective use of the whole pantry.
Create Space for Small Appliances
Finally, you may want to think about using your pantry to store some of your smaller appliances that you do not use very often. This is the perfect place for blenders, electric mixers, and the like. When setting up your new shelving units, adjust them so that the lowest shelves are taller than the upper ones. You can then use those low shelves to organize the many small appliances that fill modern kitchens, reducing clutter.
Updating Your Pantry Today
Your old pantry is a good start, but it needs some help to be transformed into a modern space. Use the tips listed above to make easy renovations and changes in your home. You can alter the storage space that you have so that it best fulfills your needs.

Appliances can consume large amounts of energy, the costs of which are rising steeply. Saving energy with home appliances can help you cut your energy costs and reduce pollution. Most appliances, including kitchen appliances, use power even when they are turned off, creating a so-called phantom load. One of the easiest ways to save energy with home appliances is by plugging them into a power strip that can be turned off or by simply unplugging appliances when they are not in use. Even newer appliances can be energy vampires. Refrigerators, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers account for a large percentage of your home’s energy use. Energy-efficient appliances are an alternative that can help you save dramatically on your energy costs.
Energy-efficient appliances are one of the most important investments a home owner can make. Compared to a refrigerator built in 1970, today’s energy efficient refrigerators use about 75 percent less energy even though the size and capability of the appliance have increased substantially. Any appliance older than 12 years may be using at least twice the energy of today’s energy efficient appliances. When shopping for energy-efficient appliances, homeowners should compare the power usage, capabilities and features of various appliances to determine which one will best meet their needs.
Americans are turning more and more to online shopping. Black Friday and Cyber Monday online sales set new records in 2012. As we turn to the internet increasingly to find great bargains, it’s important that you take some basic precautions to protect your finances.
Only use secure transaction sites.When you first go to most websites, you are on an “unsecured” connection. This means that your internet activity could be visible to anyone with access to your network (i.e. a public WiFi hotspot). As long as you’re not transmitting sensitive personal information – like credit card information – you’re okay. However, if you are going to send any personal information, make sure that the website you’re using is connected through a Secured Socket Layer (SSL) connection. You can see this in two ways:
The address bar has “https” in front of the domain name. Normally, this would be “http”. The “s” indicates a secure connection.
Your web browser displays a “padlock” symbol. This symbol varies from browser to browser, but should be located near the website address. Here are examples from Chrome and Explorer:

The Thanksgiving holiday is fast approaching, and with it the deals on “Black Friday.” The day after Thanksgiving is called “Black Friday” because so many businesses rely on sales from that day to bring their accounting ledgers to profitable numbers – also known as moving from “the red” (indicating loss) to “the black” (indicating profit).

Food storage is a problem for many people with a small kitchen. It becomes a problem to find space for pots, pans, cutlery, dishes and food. When cookbooks and extra kitchen utensils are added, it leads to people looking for storage ideas. Having a rack for food storage could be the perfect option for your small kitchen.
Different Sizes for All Needs
One of the benefits of racks is that it is possible to buy different sizes. This is great for those just looking for a shelving unit for their cookbooks or those needing something small to act as a spice rack. The various sizes also make it possible to find something for small kitchen spaces, whether there is a wall area above a washing machine or a small space between kitchen work tops and cupboards.
Fit to Walls
Storage racks will also fix directly to the walls, which makes it possible to place the storage above other items. The benefits do not just lie with saving space; it makes the storage area more stable, perfect for different needs such as spices, books and dishes. The main downside with fixing shelves to a wall is that they leave holes behind. This is not always a problem when the house is owned; it could be a problem for rented properties as landlords do not like having to fill in the gaps.
Different Styles for All Tastes
The first thought when a rack for food storage is mentioned is a single shelf. However, there are many different styles and it is possible to add racks above or below each other and create a small cupboard out of it. It is possible to add walls to the sides and a door, which will help to create a cupboard for tinned food or storage tubs to be used at a later date. Of course, a simple rack makes it quicker to grab anything that is needed while cooking or preparing a meal.
Make Your Own Racks
Another benefit is that it is possible to save money on these racks. It often requires a plank of wood and some hinges. However, it is important to check the quality of the wood used and make sure it is stable for the use.
Using a rack for food storage is an excellent option for those with small kitchens. Racks take up very little space and can be added to bare walls or above the countertops. It makes it easier to utilize all the space in the room.
The design and technology of today’s household appliances is much like a collision of reality and an episode of The Jetsons. Who would have ever thought that you could Tweet on your refrigerator, scan barcodes on your microwave, or receive text messages when a laundry cycle is completed? I certainly never expected to see the day, but much to my surprise, those appliances DO exist. Before we know it, Rosey the Robot Maid will be cleaning our toilets!
Companies like Samsung and LG have designed a Wi-Fi smart fridge with a touchscreen LCD. This Wi-Fi enabled fridge has varying monitor sizes that allow you to access apps at your fingertips. Are you curious about the weather? Want to check who “liked” your Facebook status while you grab the OJ? Who needs a television and a tablet when you can have a refrigerator that does it all?
The smart refrigerator uses Radio Frequency Identification to process what is inside your refrigerator. RFID technology allows you to conjure up recipes based on the contents of your refrigerator and keep stock of products and produce. Possibly the most incredible feature of all would have to be remote access capabilities. If you are at the market and can’t remember whether or not you have butter, you can simply access this information on-the-go.
Barcode Scanning Microwave
With barcode scanning microwaves, you can eliminate the guess work of microwave cooking. This feature would have been especially helpful about 20 years ago when I thought that the appropriate cook time for a hot dog was 5 minutes! “Stove-challenged” individuals will really come to appreciate the built-in barcode scanner that recognizes the exact type of meal and its size by scanning the product package barcode. After scanning the barcode, the microwave quickly sorts through up to 4,000 barcodes in order to locate and select the correct temperature and cook time.
Internet Enabled Laundry Room Appliances
The buzz around tech conventions is the imminent production of washers and dryers that can connect to your household network. Internet connection allows these smart appliances to run diagnostics to identify optimal times to start loads of laundry. Most impressively, these appliances will be capable of sending instant messages, text messages, or even send a notification through your television to announce the completion of a laundry cycle. I for one am a big fan of this feature because nothing is worse than drying off with a sour smelling towel!
The future of household appliances is limitless. Developers are in the process of creating devices that learn about user’s habits and adjust to their needs accordingly. Energy efficiency has become the motivating factor behind the creation of new and improved technology. Many companies are steering towards home energy management systems that connect appliances and identify where wastes and potential money saving areas exist.
