Tips for Organising a Small Pantry
Clever space saving, pantry organisation to help maximise your small pantry space and reach the back of deep shelves.
BEFORE AND AFTER PANTRY MAKEOVER
THE ORGANISED HQ TEAM DID A HOME VISIT AND WORKED OUR MAGIC
Before, the pantry didn't have any way to easily access the items at the back of the pantry. Some food hadn't been touched in years and was out of date. Using long clear storage boxes allowed us to utilise the deep shelves. Now, pulling the drawers allows easy access to reach everything at the back of the shelf.
clear out and give the pantry a clean
Remove everything from the shelf, grouping like items together. Check used by dates as you go. Clean the shelf to remove dust, dirt and food spills.
ADD IN storage solutions
Take a look at your pantry and see what’s working and what’s not. Take into consideration what’s not and look for organisation solutions that will help to maxamise the space at the back of the shelves.
HOW THESE ITEMS WERE USED TO ORGANISE PANTRY
sauces + cans
adding extra shelving
snacks in divided drawers
decanting food into containers
GATHER YOUR pantry food containers
Decanting food items into containers eliminates a lot of the visual clutter, making the pantry more streamlined and organised. This will also keep the food fresh longer and eliminate bugs. These are some great budget friendly options.
We used a chalk paint pen to label all storage containers.
ORGANISING AND STORING 'STUFF'
The top and bottom of the pantry is usually a good place to store items that are not 'everyday essentials'.
