I’ve been wanting to organize my small pantry for a few months. Recently, it has gotten out of control! Pantry organization is something that I’m passionate about because it makes navigating through the kitchen that much easier.
I created this small pantry organization and makeover video that features the step by step guide to walk you through how to organize your pantry. I’m showing you how I organized my small pantry, but you can use this idea for a pantry of any size. This is my small pantry organization idea from my home to yours.
After searching online for pantry organization ideas and only seeing large pantries, I figured I’d share this realistic pantry organization idea that I just created and currently using in my home.
This is what my pantry looked like before. I mean, just look at it.
This is what my pantry looks like now.
Here’s what I did to get this small pantry super organized with my pantry essentials.
In order to get organized, you have to see what you have. Pull everything out from the pantry and even cabinets that may house items you really want in your pantry. So if you want all canned goods in the pantry now, grab them from the kitchen cabinets and place them in one location. I put everything on my dining room table. I also painted the inside of the pantry white so that it can look brighter. This is how it looks once the pantry was emptied out and painted.
Sort like items together to see how much you have one one thing. I actually did this method for my bathroom cabinet organization. I also tossed anything I that expired.
For food items that always come with a large quantity like flour and oats, I swear by these Glass Ball Decorative containers. I purchased these a long while ago and they still come in handy! They are durable and adds special look to the pantry all the while being functional.
I used these metal baskets to store bread and some snacks. Having the snacks go in one location helps the pantry to stay neat and organized. I already had these so I used what I had. There are other wicker baskets or plastic containers that you can use to keep your pantry organized as well.
One of the things I LOVE is clear containers in the pantry. I also love using glass in the pantry as well. I think it helps to see what you have, it makes everything nice and neat and leaves the pantry feeling oh-so-organized and refreshed. These containers helped me to consolidate pantry essentials like sugar, flour, pasta and much more. Instead of having each item in the original packaging it comes in, pouring them into slim containers for this small pantry helped to make it feel like it has more space.
One of my favorite parts about this pantry makeover is organizing the canned goods! This adjustable shelf came in handy! It acts a step so you can see what you have! Its one of the best things I added to this pantry. You can buy it here.
Labeling everything makes life easier. The clear containers come with labels, but if you prefer labels with pre-written text, these pre-made labels can work.
I created my DIY pantry labels in Canva using this waterproof paper. You can grab the free pantry labels here!
Organizing a pantry can seem daunting at first, but stick with it. The end results are so worth it. This is the pantry organization method that works for me and my family for now. You can tweak and adjust based on the types of foods you eat and your home layout. If you plan to try this, I’d love to hear your comments below! ❤️
