3 Tips for Organizing Your Pantry, Rochester, New York

A kitchen pantry can be a lifesaver, but it can also welcome chaos and clutter. Implementing an organized layout will make it easy to find what you need and use the space efficiently. From properly arranging the storage shelves to using the right containers, here’s what to do to make your life easier.

What’s the Best Way to Organize a Pantry?

1. Arrange by Type

It can be difficult to locate specific ingredients and snacks when they’re on the shelves without any particular intention. Arranging everything by type is an easy way to make sense of your items so you can find them quickly.

Put cereal boxes in a row, for example, and canned goods in their own corner. You can further break these down by arranging according to flavors. Put snacks on their own storage shelves, away from food prep items.

2. Use Containers

If you have many loose ingredients, including flour, oats, and rice, pour them into glass jars and label each one clearly. Make sure all labels face outward so you can easily identify each.

3. Label the Storage Shelves

Think of your pantry as a personal shop. Make it easier to navigate by creating labels for each shelf and section.

This way, you commit to placing items in their rightful places, and all family members will know where foods belong. Be specific with the tags. You can dedicate a section to spices and another for condiments, for example.
