I’m easily inspired by the things I love. Organized Like Jen’s organizing projects always inspire me! You might look at someone who is “micro-organized” and scoff at the impossibility of your home ever looking like that, but I prefer to look at a “perfect” space and choose one element that I can incorporate into my home.
I watched a few organization videos the other day, and ended up straightening up my already organized cupboard “pantry.” While I adore my kitchen, I don’t have a true pantry – so I chose two large cupboards to dedicate to food storage. Here’s a look at my top cupboard pantry and a few tips I’ve found helpful in keeping it organized.
Here are a few other tips for organizing your pantry:
- Stock frequently used items on easy-to-reach shelves
- If you stock up on sale items, use the top shelves for overflow (for example, I store a few cans of soup on the bottom shelf and store the rest in the hard to reach corner of the middle shelf)
- Label bins so everyone in your house can easily find what they need
- Store like things together in bins (for example, my baking bin sits on the counter when I’m baking. It holds most all of the dry ingredients I need!)
Do you have a pantry? I’d love to hear your tips for maximizing space and keeping things organized, no matter where you store your pantry items!
