How To Organize A Pantry Like An Expert
#1. Get Rid of the Old
You can’t have a clean pantry if you don’t get rid of all of the old “junk” in it. Make sure you take the time to get rid of the old, so you can make room for the new. The more you put in your pantry, the more stuff that gets pushed back. Consider eliminating old stuff from your pantry at least once a month.
#2. Utilize Shelving
If you really want to organize your pantry, it’s time to utilize the shelving you already have in your pantry. Some pantries really don’t have adequate shelving, so you might need to add your own pantry shelving as well.
#3. Remove Everything
Organization is great, but to reach the ultimate organizational level in your pantry, everything needs to be clean. Pull everything out of your pantry, clean the shelves, and then put everything back. Taking everything out is a smart move because you can make sure your pantry is in tip top cleaning shape.
#4. Label Label Label
Labeling specific spots in your pantry is a smart idea. You’ll want to label your pantry however you see fit. If you like your cans next to your boxed foods, then that’s okay. Your pantry has to be functional for you and not anyone else. Labeling is one way to ensure your pantry is organized for years to come. Consider even labeling your fridge after you’ve spent time labeling your pantry.
The more organized your pantry is then the more organized your cooking life will become. Think of how much money you will save as well. An organized pantry means you can see items that you have in stock, and you won’t waste money buying double the items.
