Declutter & Organisation: Secrets To Creating An Organised Pantry

Are you tired of struggling to find what you're looking for in your cluttered pantry? An organised pantry can help bring order and efficiency to your space, so you can quickly find what you need. Here's a guide on how to get your pantry organised today.

Empty the Pantry - Start fresh by emptying contents from shelves, drawers, etc.

To begin your pantry organisation process, you will need to start from scratch! Begin by emptying the contents of your shelves, drawers, etc. As you go through each item check for expired items or anything no longer needed and dispose of them accordingly. This is also a good time to decide on how you want to group items in your pantry such as canned goods, spices, baking goods, etc.

Assess Your Space - Take stock of your pantry and decide what areas will be used for storing items.

It’s important to assess your space before getting started. Take a look around your pantry and decide what areas are going to be used for storing the items. For example, if you have shelves you should use those for putting heavy items up high, taller spaces for large boxes or containers, and smaller drawers for smaller items like cooking utensils. Additionally, consider incorporating bins and baskets for easy access to frequently used items such as snacks, condiments, etc.


Sort & Declutter - Discard excess items, or donate them if they’re still in good condition.

Before you start adding organisation solutions, take some time to sort and declutter your pantry. This means going through all of the items stored away in your pantry and removing anything that is expired, no longer being used, or is simply taking up unnecessary space. Discard those that are expired or broken and donate any items that are still in good condition if possible. This will help you create a more organised and clutter-free pantry from the get go.

Label Every Container -

Use a label-maker, chalkboard labels, or adhesive tags to identify different containers and their contents easily.

Labeling your containers is particularly helpful in managing a pantry with multiple small, irregularly shaped items like grains, rice and other dry goods. Labelling containers not only makes it easy to find the items you need quickly, but it can also help prevent confusion between different types of items that are easily mixed up. Using labels also prevents the hassle of having to check each item's contents before using them. This way, even if you don’t remember what item is inside a certain jar or container, the label has all the information you need to identify it.

Be Creative with Storage Solutions –

Utilise unused spaces such as unused wall space and corners to create more storage area in the pantry by adding floating shelves or hanging wire baskets etc

Utilising unused wall space and corners are a great way to maximise existing storage in your pantry. Consider adding wall mounted wire baskets, floating shelves or even a tall cupboard for extra storage solutions. For large items such as bulk food items, containers that fit on top of each other can be ideal for suited for wall corner spaces. Alternatively you can repurpose old furniture and appliances to fill those awkward spaces or odd shapes. Additionally, save space by storing items like canned goods in layers on shelves, instead of one layer per shelf. This is an effective way to reduce clutter ad increase efficiency.
