Getting a pantry organized can be tricky. You might have food, spices, containers and serving pieces all in a pantry. All these different items makes your pantry crowded. Here are some tools and tips that can help you with better pantry organization.
Try using see through containers and labels to understand exactly what you have for food preparations. We recommend you keep similar items on similar shelves. For instance, boxes on the same shelf, cans and jars on another and so on. Try using back of the door space if you have it available. A pantry organization tool like this one can store a number of household goods.
Try using storage containers and baskets to better manage utensils and cookbooks. These containers and baskets can help create a method to your organization. Try using a can rack to allow for more stackable storage. Can racks are good for a pantry and a refrigerator. If you are a soda drinker, you can use racks to store cans of soda similarly to how you store cans in your pantry.
Stacking platters, bowls and other serving pieces can also help with storage issues. If you have room in your pantry, try adding shelves inside your pantry. These shelves allow you also stack pieces and cans and boxes on top of one another. One of the functions we like about shelves, is that you can stack bowls on top each safely and cleanly for good storage.
Also remember that throwing out old food also helps you have better pantry organization.
That’s quite an opening statement. I’m sure many people have disorganized panties.
Some probably more disorganized than others. Nothing beats having an organized pantry where you can see everything you have and what you need to throw out and what room you have for more available storage of kitchen items.
Homezada – chrisszl is teasing you because of the typo in the first line. It’s still there.
Glad you caught this one. There was another misspelling in the post that was corrected but for some reason no one caught the very first misspelling. Thanks for pointing it out.
Where did you find all the containers?
We use storage containers from Cost Plus World Market, http://www.worldmarket.com/category/kitchen-entertaining/kitchen-storage/storage-containers.do?nType=1&ab=third:kitchen-entertaining:kitchen-storage:storage-containers
Bins from Storables http://www.storables.com/kitchen/cabinet-pantry-organizers/pantry-bins.html and Rubber Maid and Baskets from our local HomeGoods store http://www.homegoods.com/ or Marshalls. We find and use a variety of labels from Office Depot and Michael’s. Sometimes we find great online templates and print them on plain label paper and cut them to size. We hope this helps.
