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.
Use canisters for dry goods (and label them!)
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!
We hope you can use some of these ideas to create your own organized space! How do you keep your pantry organized?
