We have cleaned our pantry many many times over the years, but it never stays organized for long. It’s like the closets of the house, we just throw things in there for a “quick clean up” and come back to it later. We have decided to stop putting it off and today is the day! Let’s find a more permanent solution and have a clean and organized pantry!
1. A clean pantry makes cooking a lot easier, so we’ll start by preparing designated areas and grouping foods together. We want the cereals to be together with the jams and syrups, then group our coffee, tea and snacks together, canned goods with cooking oils, condiments and grains in another section and so on. We’re taking it a step further by labeling the shelves. This will help us stay organized and reminds us where items should go.
2. It’s also a great idea to have a section for all instant meals like noodles, mac and cheese and canned foods etc…
3. Depending on your cooking style, you may cook a lot of ethnic meals. If that’s the case, we recommend grouping them together. For example, if you cook a lot of Asian inspired meals, make sure to group together the curry sauce, coconut milk and soy sauce.
4. We like using clear baskets to organize the pantry and to keep the shelves clean. Things get pretty messy when we cook and the bottom of certain sauce jars get dirty. So putting them back in a clear basket makes the cleaning process a lot easier. We just clean the baskets that get messy and voila!
5. We love using glass jars and containers for any of our dry goods. Make it a fun diy project by labeling the jars, this helps it to stay organized, plus is also looks neat and clean!
6. Keep an eye on those expiration dates, we like to place items that expire soon in plain sight. If you have space in your pantry, we suggest making a designated space just for that.
Maybe your pantry needs an upgrade, we recommend the custom route! A custom pantry will ensure you make the most of the space you have. Take a look at this one we’ve built, a beautiful walk-in pantry with lots of storage from top to bottom. We love this custom because everything is already nicely divided, with shelves and drawers. We also love the mini counter space for additional storage! As you can see from this picture, our customer enjoys organizing her pantry! She had the creative idea of using different shapes and sizes of jars. Not only does it look clean, it looks absolutely stunning!
