Pantry Organization Tips

Wasting time on trying to find the ingredient you’re looking for may be the last thing you want to have happen on a busy Monday morning. Keep your pantry clean and orderly by doing the following tips:

Disorganize to reorganize
The first step in pantry organization is to empty the shelves. (It will be worth it. We promise.) Toss anything expired, donate what you don’t need, and sort the rest by type. By pulling everything out of the pantry, you can evaluate what you have, which will determine how you configure your storage. Plus, when you eliminate items, you’ll free up more space in your pantry.

Keep things within reach
Avoid having your family members mess up your painstakingly-organized pantry by making the most-used items easy to find on one shelf or area. “Keep the items they eat on a regular basis accessible so they don’t have to move things around,” Gordon says. Source: RealSimple

Display commonly used items in open shelves
If you’re really strapped for space, it may not be possible to keep all of your pantry staples out of sight. Invest in tasteful containers for a few frequently used ingredients—then put them on display on open shelving. Source: Delish

Take 10 minutes every day
A few everyday tasks that take just a few minutes — like wiping down pantry shelves, keeping package labels facing outward and visible, grouping like items together, and tossing expired items — will leave you with an always-tidy pantry. Source: TheKitchn

Use clear containers
Seeing is essential. In a well-organized pantry it’s important that things are visible. We advise putting dry goods (sugar, flour, etc.) into clear containers to give you a quick visual of how much of any one item is left.  Source: ElleDecor
