I know organizing your pantry might seem overwhelming, but you are really just 30 minutes away from a clean and organized pantry (depending on how big your pantry is of course). Getting your pantry organized is going to make your life a lot easier. Here’s how you can start:
1.) Remove everything you have from your pantry so you can see how much space you have and how much stuff you have to fill it.
2.) Look at the expiration date and get rid of anything past its date. Also, see if you have multiples of everything and consolidate them into one container.
3.) Now arrange your shelves like they do in the grocery store. Put all the spices, cans, grains and condiments on separate areas. The items you use the most like cereals should be place at an eye level. Everything that comes in space hogging boxes should be place in a plastic Tupperware container. They help food stay fresh and safe from insects, plus they stack up well so you can have more space in your pantry.
4.) Store the heavier items on lower shelves so you can grab them without straining your back. Also, store anything you don’t want your children to lay their hands on, on the top shelf where they can’t be reached.
The few minutes you take each time to clean up will really pay off and hopefully, you won’t have to do this again for a long time. Stay organized my friends.
