Build your own pantry organizer to suit your family’s needs. It’s easier than you think.
3. Chalk Doors for Your Pantry
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.

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!
12. Clothespin Hack for Your Pantry
Don’t store your cereal in their big, bulky boxes. Just pop a clothespin on top, and put the cereal bags in space-saving baskets.

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.
15. Larger Pantry Item Solutions
Large, heavy items that you keep on the floor can be organized into pretty baskets, boxes or crates.
