Never lose your favorite spice blend behind your boxes of cereal again.
Try Clear Containers
Don’t hunt through mountains of cardboard boxes. Instead, transfer ingredients and snacks into clear canisters so you can skip reading labels — and inspire a uniform tidiness.
Add Lazy Susans
Show us an organization problem, and we’ll show you a lazy Susan. The corner in your pantry usually ends up being the black hole where cans or bags go to be lost forever — but when you install spinners in this space instead, nothing will be forgotten again.
Hack IKEA Boxes
Those stylish boxes with label holders from IKEA are a favorite in offices everywhere, but they have a place in your pantry, too. Cut a hole into one of the sides and stack canned foods by category (tomato sauces, vegetables, etc.) without lifting a lid to retrieve them.
Use Slim Bins
Move dry goods into tall, skinny containers to save space. You can pack more items onto the shelf, plus, these matching storage bins look way more organized and orderly compared to your usually multicolored chaos.
Make A Chip Hanger
You’ve probably passed by these racks in the grocery store — but they’re just as handy at home and will only cost you a few bucks. Add the rack to her pantry to create a chip hanger.
Use Wasted Space
That area between the end of your shelf and the door frame shouldn’t just be for show. Narrow cubbies fit snugly there and are the perfect size for your spices.
Get Some Baskets
Keep organization simple with wicker baskets. You can pile items on top of each other without worrying that they’ll topple over onto the floor the next time you open the door.
This is the ultimate double-whammy: Those plastic skirt hangers will make sure your snacks don’t go stale and make extra storage space appear out of thin air. But wait, there’s more: The hanger can also keep your cookbook open while you cook.
Instead of stacking heavy pots and pans on top of each other (and using up valuable shelf space) just install peg board on a free wall. Suddenly your heavy-duty items are on display and easy to grab.
Turn Shelves Into Drawers
Drawers that pull out allow you to pack your pantry full of food without having to worry about losing your pasta sauce into the far back corner you can’t reach. Then, organize your drawers by item type for more cohesive storage.
Use A Shoe Organizer
No, they’re not just for sneakers — store spices, sprays, and spreads in the different slots. The organizer adds at least a shelf’s worth of extra storage to your pantry.
