10 Amazing Pantry Fixes
With just a few small changes, you can have a storage solution that makes it easy to find what you need and shop smarter.
A well-organized pantry makes cooking a joy. With shelves and containers clearly labeled, a trip to the pantry will never be a search and rescue mission. With just a few more changes, you will have a pantry that truly works for you.
Gathering like things together is the key to pantry organization. Evaluate your food supplies to determine the amount of space you will need for each category, such as dried good, canned goods, spices, etc. Consider who will need to access things most often and place them accordingly.
Label all spices in a way that will be easy to read and find. Print labels on adhesive paper and cut them out to fit containers.
Use chalkboard paint on wide shelves to allow for changing the labels as the contents of the shelves change.
Attach magazine holders to the doors of the pantry to hold food wraps and storage bags.
Be sure to save space at the bottom of the pantry for a stool to reach the highest shelves with ease.
Utilize a bin under shelves to maximize space and store loose goods such as potatoes, onions and garlic.
Install a coat hook inside the pantry to keep aprons tucked away, but close at hand.
Add shelf risers to elevate rows of cans, making it easy to see what is available.
Use all available space by installing a metal board for magnetic canisters to hold your favorite spices.
Add a tea cup hook to the door to hold a meal planner/grocery list, including a pen so anyone can jot down needs.
Install a light to make it easy to find what you need.
