When it comes to storage and organization, often our kitchen cabinets are the last places in our homes to get any attention, sometimes making our cooking time harder and longer. With all the cans, spices, dry food, and other pantry basics that come in and out on a daily basis, it’s easy to let this part of our home become chaos. But keeping it organized can make it easier to find what you need and more attractive as well. Try some of these easy ways to organize your pantry that will for sure make a huge difference.
Install a Lazy Susan
The key to an organized space is being able to easily grab everything you need, when you need it. This is why lazy Susans are an essential component to any truly organized pantry. They’re great for storing small bottles, and they make grabbing such a breeze. They come in a wide range of styles but if you want a more affordable option, you can easily do it yourself following Noting Grace steps HERE.
Store Bulk Items into Nice-Looking Glass Jars
Transferring items like sugar, flour and rice into glass containers is a great way to make your pantry look more organized and more attractive. It is also a great way to notice when you’re running low on any essential. Plus, it will keep your kitchen cabinets cleaner by getting rid of the open or unsealed bags.
Store Dry Food in Plastic Containers with Sleek Design
Store stuff like chips, pasta, ramen, mac & cheese, bread and anything you can think of in plastic containers. You can find this containers anywhere from Wal-Mart, Target or even Amazon. This is an easy way to quickly identify what you want, grab and go. We are drooling about Classy Cutter’s pantry organization, you can see it HERE.
Label Your Containers
If you’re moving everything into identical containers, make sure they’re labeled so you can identify them easily. Some things are easy to recognize, but some aren’t and you don’t want any confusion when you’re cooking or when someone else is in your pantry! Keep everything uniform and it will add style to your pantry.

Use Baskets for Fresh Produce
Keeping fresh produce that doesn’t go in the fridge in your pantry sorted in baskets will help them stay fresh and readily available. Keep the like together instead of having that onion rolling around.
Now you have a pretty pantry! Hopefully, it will inspire us to cook more healthy meals.
