3) Hanging wire shelves and drawers - ClosetMaid at Home Depot
We cut the top rail to fit inside our wardrobe turned pantry space. I like using the drawers which are wider than the opening to keep the stuff in place and prevent it from coming out during travel.

4) Battery operated stick-on LED push lights for pantry

5) IKEA Hanging storage with 7 compartments - fits perfectly in our wardrobe closets on each side of the bed. The link isn't exactly what we bought, but the only difference is the pattern/color.

Ikea is a great place to fine the things for small spaces!

Changed my 'pantry' to the peg board setup instead off wire hanging shelves

It turns out I don't much like my hanging wire shelves for my wardrobe turned pantry. It didn't maximize the space and didn't travel so well. So I decided to use the peg board shelving idea, I still need to find the clips for setting the shelves on, but until I can get some I'm using dowels instead. Let's see how much I end up liking this setup

Did you glue the peg boards to the sides? I really like this idea? We have several tall cabinets I want to put shelves in. Thanks for sharing. I was considering the baskets or wire shelving and this made my mind up for me.

No, I didn't use any glue. By cutting the width of the pegboard to fit the depth of the space that should keep it from moving front to back and then making sure the width of the shelves are cut so when they're put in place they push the pegboard flat against the side walls, this should result in a secure fit. If I remember correctly there are a few threads for this idea. Here's the one that I first found it at, near the bottom of this page:

I'll let you know how well these travel when we head back home next week

Isn't there a lot of movement of items in there while traveling? Or do you have something to hold them in place?

I definitely have concerns about how well it'll travel. The wire shelving did not travel as well as I had hoped. Although it was good for making sure things didn't come out during travel, the 'hooks' ending up bending so that the shelves would droop down

For the pegboard shelving, the way I have them cut there is no front to back or side to side movement. However, I am concerned about them bouncing out of place during travel so I'm going to try putting pegs just above the shelves to try and prevent them from bouncing around too much. So three pegs above and three pegs below on each side for a total of twelve pegs per shelf. Right now all I have are the wooden dowels but I'm going to buy me some of those 1/4" nickel shelf pins and see how well I like them. If anyone knows of a better solution to prevent the shelves from bouncing, please share.

I will also use baskets to put my items into during travel (wide enough so they do not come flying out the door and I'll wrap any glass bottles up to pad them and prevent them from crashing and breaking. Won't know how well this works until I try I'll let you know how it goes
