You loved our last pantry organization post, and as you know, we love to organize! So we’ve put together 15 more pantry organization ideas to help you make the most of your storage space. With the right storage tools and a little bit of thinking outside the box, your pantry will be in order before you know it.
Tips to Organize Your Pantry
Maximize corner space with a few lazy Susans (or turn tables). What a clever idea!
Build your own pantry organizer to suit your family’s needs. It’s easier than you think.
We love these chalkboard doors for recording the menus and shopping lists. Handy!
If you really want to makeover your pantry, consider installing a pegboard. You can easily move baskets around without hammering lots of nails into the wall.
When you’re working with a small pantry, make every inch of space count. Add wire shelves or baskets to the side walls for small miscellaneous items.
Wire over-the-door organizers are terrific for holding heavier items, like canned goods.
How to Get Your Pantry in Order
Free up shelf space with an over-the-door organizer for some of your most-used spices and kitchen tools.
Add spice racks in tight spaces to hold spices and other small containers.
You’ll also want to use clear containers to store most things, so that way if you have to place items in front of others, you can still see at a glance what you have.
Smart Pantry Organization Ideas
Plastic containers are fabulous for storing cereal, rice, pasta and beans. Pro tip: Add chalkboard labels to them if you don’t want to commit to using them for a certain type of food.
You can do the same with glass jars and contact paper. You don’t even have to buy new glass jars… just upcycle the ones you already have, and paint the lids!
Add some hooks or a pretty coat hanger to store your aprons in the pantry, too. They also work well for extra oven mitts and potholders.
Use inexpensive baskets to organize items that usually get cluttered, such as spice packets, tea, Jello boxes, and snacks.
Large, heavy items that you keep on the floor can be organized into pretty baskets, boxes or crates.
