Some would say I get a little crazy with organization, especially the ones who see me organize my groceries on the check out conveyer. What? I like to think ahead…When all my groceries are packed according to location in the pantry it becomes less stressful taking them out once I’m home.
Having everything in its correct spot makes finding things so much easier, therefore making cooking more fun and stress free.
When it comes to organizing your pantry keep in mind the items you use often and items with short shelf life. Try to keep them the closest to the entrance so they are the first thing you see and they are easily accessible.
Compartmentalize any free flowing items such as fresh fruits and vegetables and small condiments like chips, popcorn, and general snacks.
Keep everything coordinated by size and packaging if possible. For example, place pasta and grains in clear containers for easy visibility and practical storage. Loose items such as flour and sugar can be placed in separate containers as well to avoid messes and bugs or simply placed into zip-lock bags for a more budget friendly solution.
Feel free to label! You can label individual items or a shelf ( baking essentials, breakfast food, school treats, etc.) which makes it easier to locate items for visitors and yourself.
Hope this gives you a good idea on how to organize your pantry. We now offer an organization service if you need any help.
