The pantry has become a hot comedy these days, food is flying off the shelves. Snacks have morphed into an all day affair. Opening the pantry has become the most exciting part of the day. Here are some ideas for pantry organization to get you excited.
Boxes take up unnecessary space, empty them out to maximize space.
Utilize turntables for hard to reach items. Turntables compact space and make it easy to access what you need quickly with a simple spin.
Expandable shelves give you flexibility and create more space. Displaying canned items on a tiered shelf gives you a better visual of what you have allowing you to function with ease.
Keep solid bins toward the bottom so you can “peak” in there. Use clear bins for individually wrapped items such as granola packs and fruit snacks.
Label the bins to maintain an organized pantry.
