5 Simple Tips for Small Pantry Organization

Find the Open Spaces

Make the most of your kitchen space with creative small pantry solutions! If you have a hallway between rooms, consider adding storage components that blend in with your décor, and you can still store all essential ingredients close to the kitchen. Alternatively, explore other possibilities like shelving units against open walls near the sink or stove for easy access to items as you are cooking. Your pantry space does not have to be only closets and cabinets.

Consider If A Pull-Out Pantry Is Right for You

Get the best of both worlds with a pull-out pantry. Easily monitor expiration dates and keep your kitchen neat—all while gaining full visibility into everything stored away. Keep track of what you have, leave clutter in the past, and enjoy an organized space without sacrificing convenience.

Designate Sections for Different Categories of Food Items

Designating areas among your pantry space is an excellent way to stay organized for the long-term. When setting up your items, try keeping similar products together for quick and easy reference. This method can help you maintain order in the long run, giving you streamlined access when cooking and putting away groceries. Start with these categories:

  • Beverages
  • Bread
  • Breakfast Food
  • Canned Items
  • Pasta/Grains
  • Snacks
  • Spices

Take Opportunities to Stack

Stacking cans vertically on shelves and clearing out any unused pantry items will free up valuable pantry real estate. You can stack duplicate items and similar foods, so you have a good visual of all the items in your pantry.

Keep Food Storage Containers Together

To get the most out of your food containers, store them all in one place. If you stack like shapes together while keeping their lids organized vertically, it streamlines the process to match tops and lids. This creative organization system allows quick selection when it’s time to put away or take out meals!
