It’s been a long time coming but I finally got around to organizing my pantry. Honestly, I’ve never had a pantry this large and I was totally abusing it. We moved in and I tossed stuff on the shelves and dreaded going in there!

Can you relate or am I alone in the messy pantry department?

Pantry organized after and before

Until now…

Organize your pantry with containers

Here’s what I did:

  1. Remove everything and clean shelves and floor.
  2. Trash out of date items.
  3. Create zones for small appliances, storage containers, dog food, veggies, etc.
  4. Place food in storage containers.
  5. Bring items back and place in pantry.

Containers used:

Empty pantry and prepare to get organized

As I emptied the shelves, I tossed out anything that was out of date and things we no longer eat. We’ve been trying to eat less processed food, which meals less canned items.

Remove items that are not designed to live in the pantry, I have a slight problem with dropping everything in here, whether it belongs or not.

A place for everything when you organize your pantry

I reused some of the containers that I had, moved the drinks and bar mixes to the left. When you walk in the everyday stuff is on the shelves that you see first.

I used a collapsible container for Murphy’s treats and small cans of food. For the larger bag of dog food, it’s stored on the floor below.

Small appliances that aren’t used often are on the higher shelves along with other seldom used items.

Life is easier with an organized pantry

I love how convenient my larger appliances are.

In the corner I added this bamboo shelf for storing plastic sandwich bags.

Sandwich bags are much easier to get to

Whether you have a small pantry or large these ideas will make life so much easier. Creating your shopping list and meal planning will take less time because you can see what you need.
