7 Ways to Organize Your Pantry
If you’re sick of your messy pantry, here’s how to better organize your pantry without spending a lot:
Clear Containers + Labelers Are Your New BFF
Clear nifty containers and labelers will be your new best friend. With that said, if you are going to invest in something, invest in clear containers (as well as labelers). This way, you won’t have trouble finding which is which in your pantry. To further streamline and stay consistent, try to get containers from the same line or brand.
Baskets are one of the best storage you can use for your pantry. Depending on your style, there are tons of styles to choose from. Neatly labeled baskets also make a great interior style statement.
Install Small Caddies
Maximize every space in your cupboard by installing small caddies. Use it to store excess kitchen utensils or even spices. You can even use it to store snacks for your kids.
You’ll never have to leave out or guess any supplies that you put in the back with a lazy susan. They are totally diy-able, though kind of old-school, lazy susans are still functional and a smart way to organize your pantry.
Shoe Organizer Hack
Just like installing a caddy, you can maximize your pantry by putting a shoe organizer hack behind your pantry’s door. They are inexpensive, and almost everyone has them.
If you want to create more space or just see better, you can add shelf inserts to your pantry. You can buy them or if you want, diy them. Aside from installing a shelf insert, you can also create space by stacking slim clear containers.
