How to Quickly and Effectively Organise Your Pantry


A kitchen pantry is a magical place, it will either hold everything you could possibly need at any given point or be filled to capacity with nothing to snack on. The latter problem is usually because it's cluttered and unorganised. With a few little changes and a quick organisation spree, your pantry will be easy to navigate and clutter-free.

  • Stack flat plastic: instead of using the usual long, pouring Tupperware-type containers, consider flat stackable lunchbox style containers to take advantage of all the available space.
  • Utilise the door: Make sure the inside of your pantry door doesn't become wasted space, install hooks to hang kitchen towels, oven mitts, and aprons, or towel rails to keep your pot lids safely stored and out of the way.
  • Consider the under shelf space: instead of using the harder to reach shelf on the floor of your panty with untidy stacked brick-a-brack, slide a few crates on wheels and store things that aren't used every day such as tablecloths or picnic blankets.
  • A Lazy Susan: many of us have a lot, and we mean A LOT, of spices or canned food, reaching for the right one is a challenge of dexterity so that nothing gets knocked over. Store them on a Lazy Susan, that way, one little spin gets you whatever you need without accidentally knocking something over.
  • Baskets: invest in a few baskets to store similar food items into groups, for example, sweet snacks in one basket, savoury snacks in another, dry baking ingredients, pasta and so on. This will not only make everything look neat and organised but will make your pantry easier to navigate and writing a grocery list a quicker task.

Having a wonderfully organised pantry makes cooking, baking, grocery list writing, entertaining, and snacking easier, not just those benefits, but it will also look great.
