Pantry Organizing Tips Hip2Save

Does your pantry need a little attention? Today we’re sharing some simple strategies along with photos from my pantry. The 4 tips below will help you to create a good looking and organized space without spending a ton of money.

Lazy Susans are your best friend!

I love these because they actually do hold lots of items and it’s easy to see exactly what you have.  These are the Copco brand from Bed Bath & Beyond and start around $7.99. I’m thinking of adding them to my fridge too! There are different sizes to choose from and even a double decker option.

For a period of several weeks, I would go into thrift stores and look in the houseware section specifically for glass and ceramic canisters for food storage. These items can be pricey new, but I scored many of mine for just few dollars each (I even found some at my local Goodwill “dollar day” sales!). Taking dry goods out of boxes and placing them in canisters saves space and allows you to see what you have easily. Finish by adding pretty labels – the labels pictured above were cut from chalkboard vinyl that I purchased at the craft store.

Use baskets for small items

Using baskets to group together all your smaller items saves space and looks so much more organized than a bunch of boxes. All of the kid’s snacks like apple sauce squeezables, granola bars, crackers, and cookies are grouped together.

Chalkboard vinyl on interior of cabinet door = Instant Grocery List

This is a fun and easy DIY that takes just a few minutes. Buy a roll of Chalkboard vinyl and place it on the interior of a cabinet door. It’s just like a giant sticker that can be removed easily if you don’t want it anymore.  Use it to write a quick note or to create/update your grocery list!

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
