  • Let’s Organize that Pantry

    We all know the importance of organization, but sometimes we neglect to organize important parts of the house. The kitchen pantry is an especially important place to keep organized, neat, and clean. As a place that people are constantly getting things from, it's useful to know where everything is and to be able to find what you need. Stop digging through clutter and create a pantry that's easy to navigate and organized well. Use these suggestions from HGTV to make your kitchen pantry one of your most organized areas of your house.

     

    #1: Make Every Inch Count

    The secret to an easy-to-use pantry is visibility. You should be able to see everything you have. Remove smaller items (such as spice bottles or small cans) and place them in a basket or in a door rack. Adding a riser shelf or Lazy Susan will double your pantry space and help you find things quicker. You can find great storage options at the Container Store.

    #2:  Embrace FIFO

    FIFO is the accounting term for ‘First In First Out' and it's a great idea not only for figures. When it comes to your pantry, place newer items in the back and use up older items first. You're less inclined to let good things go bad.  It's also a good idea to keep a pad of paper and pen inside your pantry door. Simply jot down items that need replenishing. The next time you go to the store, your list will be right there.

    #3:  Organize For You

    No two families or pantries are alike. When arranging yours, think about what will work for your hungry crew. This may be stocking items by type (e.g. bottles, cans, bags), by family members (you, your kids, pets), or by their purpose (e.g. snacks, sweets, ingredients).  There is no right answer.  Just find the way that works for you. Bon appétit!
