5 Steps to Organize The Pantry


An organized space makes it a better space. With food packages coming in all diverse materials, dimensions and shapes, it is easy to turn a well-designed kitchen pantry into an absolute mess. But, in only 5 steps you can organize the pantry in a fabulous way!
1. Decide to get organized;
There are many reasons to organize your pantry: you will save time, you will save money and you will get a good lifestyle.
2. Find out how to declutter the pantry;
Practically, the first step is to do some housekeeping: take everything out of the pantry, dust it and line up the food items on a table or on the floor. After that ask yourself these questions about each item: “Has this expired?”, “Do I use this?”, “Do I like this?”. If you don’t agree the answer, throw the items out.
3. Arrange items in a proper way for space-savings and simple access;
It is recommended to arrange items by group, not by size, for example: boxes of grains, bottles of oils and vinegar, jars of spices. Then, place items at the right height in your pantry: the items you use most regularly must be placed not too up and not too down.

4. Select the right storage solutions for your pantry;
The best solution you can get for pantry storage is roll-out storage which easily allows you to see the contents of each shelf.
5. Keep your pantry organization going forward.
In this way, you can follow some routines (daily, weekly, monthly) to maintain everything in your home organized and clutter-free .

    A few things; PANTRY MOTHS!! I had to take everything out of zip-lock bags and store-packaging and store it in glass jars and tins. I see you have cake-mix on the shelf: I have to store mine in the freezer.
    Brown rice has a much shorter life-span than white rice: DON’T OVER BUY!! Even with the O2 absorbers it goes bad.
    Another good resource, if it’s nearby, is a mormon/LDS Cannery. They will lend out canning machines for dry-pack canning, and you can buy the cans, lids, and plastic lids there, as well as market-priced bulk bags of all sorts of stuff! And the ‘mormon mashed potatoes/potato pearls’…. OH MY GOODNESS! They are amazing!
