7 Tips for Organizing Your Pantry Easier and Better ...


Organizing your pantry sure doesn’t seem like a fun task, I know. In fact, organizing can make some of us want to pull our hair out! I tend to find organizing stresses me out in the midst of it, but I’m actually addicted to the finished result. Most people’s pantry is one area that tends to get a little out of hand fast. The weeks are busy, and in a hurry, you grab this and that to toss it into a meal, and put it up as fast as you can so you can eat. Am I right? Before you know it your paprika is mixed in with your dark chocolate chips, and your baking soda is in the cabinet with your quinoa and brown rice! While everyone’s pantry organizing preferences are different, I’d like to share with you a few ways that I keep mine simple and organized without too much trouble. Try using these tips for organizing your pantry and let me know if you have any that work for you too.

1. Purge It

Purge It

Before you can actually begin organizing your pantry, it needs to be empty. Therefore, it’s time for a pantry purge! Empty out each shelf, and put it in a large area such as a blank counter top or even the floor with a sheet down. Don’t empty out all your shelves at one time, but instead, one at a time. As you empty out each shelf, toss anything with an expiration date, and anything you want to keep, set aside to one pile. Here's a hint: now's a great time to toss all those processed, unhealthy foods you can't seem to get rid of. Your new, clean pantry and your healthy eating routine will thank you!
