Want to know how to keep your pantry organized like a pro? We’ve got a few tips to help you out:
- Use jars and canisters — Want to keep your food as fresh as possible? Pour all of your flour, baking soda, baking powder, and other baking supplies into jars. Jars will keep these items much fresher than their box or bag will. Use plastic canisters to store cereal and dried goods. You can slap a label onto every jar and canister to make it easy to find what you’re looking for in a hurry.
- Separate the food and equipment –– Want to make sure you take advantage of your storage space? Separate the foodstuffs and your kitchen equipment. Put the cooking items as near to the door as possible, making them convenient to grab when you are cooking. Try to organize the cooking items as near to their respective foodstuffs as possible–i.e.; mixing bowls and muffin trays near the baking supplies.
- Use bleachers –– There is such a thing as “pantry bleachers”, essentially a multi-level platform that makes storage easy. With all of the cans and jars stored on different levels, you’ll be able to see what’s what any time you step into the pantry. It’s an amazingly effective way to keep your pantry organized.
- Store bags of dried goods in trays — Baking dishes and trays with high sides will provide a useful storage place for any bags of dried goods, such as rice, beans, lentils, popcorn, and oats. The trays will allow you to store more in a whole lot less space, and they’ll help you keep things neat and tidy. Anytime you reach for the dried goods, it’s as easy as sliding the tray out.
