Do you have a small pantry space or no dedicated pantry at all? I’ve found some amazing pantry organization hacks that keep things in order for me. Finding a way to optimize the space that you do have and use it in the best way possible is key!
Keeping things organized in your home is sometimes a challenge. I know I find it difficult to get the motivation to organize something the right way. And it’s even harder to keep it organized! Use these hacks to help you keep an organized pantry.
Over The Door Storage
Use an over the door pantry storage organizer. This fits on any size door and is slim enough that it hardly takes up any space. Put all of your loose items in here so nothing is left sitting out.
Food Storage Containers
Use clear storage containers with labels. Not only do these look pretty, they are functional. By putting your dried food items into clear containers, you can see what they are and take up less space. Sometimes the original box or container that something comes in is bulky and takes up more unnecessary space.
Lazy Susan Storage
In a small space, sometimes things may be hard to get to without moving other stuff out of the way. Using storage that spins to the other side while in place like a lazy susan kitchen pantry organizer is the perfect solution.
Use stackable dollar store bins to use the entire space from floor to ceiling. Why waste any space? These stackable bins are cheap and have an opening in the front to easily access what’s stored in them.
If you want stackable bins that are a little large, try a 4 tiered stackable shelving unit for your pantry.
Put Everything In Storage Bins
I really mean everything! If you start leaving stuff on a random shelf or if it doesn’t have a place to go, your pantry will start looking cluttered. Pantry storage bins should be used for everything that’s going in your pantry.
Make Sure You Label Everything
Unless you have laser vision, you won’t know what’s in something unless you can directly see it or if its labeled. I would even use labels for your spices. Using refillable spice containers with labels instead of the original ones makes you only keep 1 of each spice! There have been sooo many time where I went to clean out my spice cabinet and I had 3 different containers of the same spice!
