8 Pantry Organizers You Can Count On
Keep your supplies in place with these trusty essentials
It can be tricky to achieve an orderly pantry given the number of items you need to organize. In a perfect world, we can easily see the last can of soup or the box of cookies we've been eyeing for weeks. Lucky for us, there are pocket-friendly ideas and must-haves that can help keep the pantry in tip-top shape. With these storage hacks, you'll never get lost in the clutter of your pantry again:
1. Airtight containers
Perhaps the simplest and most common organizer there is, clear containers are a great yet way to store food products in the pantry. These containers make it easier for you to find what you need, while helping reduce the amount of waste in your home. If you want to take things up a notch, you can exercise your creativity by decorating your containers by using cute labels.
For kitchen staples like sugar, salt, and spices, as well as food items like powdered drinks and grains, jars are perfect for storage. Just like airtight containers, jars allow easy recognition of what items you might need, and these do not take up too much space.
3. Baskets or racks
The basket is another tool commonly associated with organizing and storage, and for a great reason—they can hold multiple items at a time and even keep clutter out of sight. There are plenty of basket varieties available that can accommodate your needs. Wire racks are a great alternative as well.
For items such as kitchen tools and utensils, or even smaller airtight containers, pullout drawers are an easy and stylish solution which can easily fit into your pantry without taking up too much space.
Hooks are great for holding everything from aprons and kitchen towels, to spatulas, ladles, and tongs, to pots and pans.
6. Shower caddies
These organizers need not only be used in your bathroom—these can also be great storage solutions for your pantry! You can use these to store your condiments and spices for easy access. A good alternative to a shower caddy would be hanging mesh racks.
7. Old cans
For a fun way to keep your smaller utensils in place, old cans can be a great storage hack. You can take this as an opportunity to exhibit your creativity by designing the cans yourself.
To take advantage of that empty space between the bottom of your shelf and the floor, get a crate to store items that you need but don’t necessarily use often, like reusable tote bags for grocery shopping and extra kitchen rags. To access your crates’ contents easily, you can attach wheels on them.
