Tips for Pantry Organization
Have you been working to get your home organized for 2015? For me it is an ongoing process! My pantry is now as organized as it is going to be and I’d like to share a few tips that work for me for keeping things neat and easy to find.
My pantry wasn’t terribly unorganized, I just needed to take some time to decide exactly where I wanted to store certain items and I needed to decide if I was using every inch of space efficiently.
DIY labeled crates hold my dog's essentials.
My rice, dried beans, and pastas used to be crammed into a pantry corner. I’d often have to dig through a pile to find what I needed. A wine crate given to me by a neighbor corals these items neatly. I put slides on the bottom of the box so that I can easily pull it out without damaging the shelf.
Grouping like foods together makes it easy to find what you need when cooking and it makes it easy to see what needs to be added to the grocery list when it is shopping time.
I don’t bake cupcakes all that often but for some reason I can’t resist buying seasonal liners. A vintage tin keeps them in one spot and is easy to look through when I want to back a batch of cupcakes.
