Having an organized pantry can save you time, money, and stress. When your pantry is cluttered and disorganized, it can be difficult to find what you need, leading to food waste and unnecessary spending. But with a few simple organizing hacks, you can turn your pantry into a functional and efficient space. In this blog post, I’ll share 10 organizing hacks to help you get your pantry in order.
Start with a deep clean
The first step in organizing your pantry is to give it a deep clean. Empty out all the shelves and wipe them down with a damp cloth. Take the opportunity to throw out any expired or stale food items. If you come across any items that are still good but you know you won’t use, consider using them up before its expiry.
Invest in clear containers
Clear containers are an essential organizing tool for any pantry. Not only do they keep your food fresh for longer, but they also make it easy to see what you have on hand. Use them to store cereal, pasta, rice, and other dry goods. Label the containers with the contents and the expiration date so you know when to use them.
Use vertical space
Maximize your storage space by using the vertical space in your pantry. Install shelves or use hanging organizers to create more storage. Use hooks to hang pots, pans, and other kitchen tools. This will free up space on your shelves for food items.
Risers are another great way to make use of your vertical space. They allow you to stack items on top of each other without taking up more shelf space. Use them for canned goods, jars, and spices.
Store like items together
Organize your pantry by storing like items together. Keep all your baking supplies in one area, all your canned goods in another, and so on. This will make it easy to find what you need and prevent duplicate purchases.
Use baskets and bins
Baskets and bins are a great way to corral small items in your pantry. Use them to store snacks, spices, and other small items. Label the baskets and bins with the contents to make it easy to find what you need.
Rotate your stock
To prevent food waste, make sure you are rotating your stock. When you buy new items, move the older ones to the front so you use them first. This will prevent items from expiring before you have a chance to use them.
Create a snack station
If you have kids, creating a snack station can be a great way to keep them satisfied and prevent them from reaching for unhealthy snacks. Use a designated shelf or basket to store pre-packaged snacks and healthy options like fruit and nuts.
Use a lazy Susan
A lazy Susan is a great tool for storing items that are difficult to reach. Use it to store condiments, spices, and other small items. You can easily spin the lazy Susan to access items in the back.
Use the door
Don’t forget about the door! You can use the back of the pantry door to store items like spices, snacks, and kitchen tools. Install a spice rack or use an over-the-door organizer to create more storage.
